Total on week 178 minutes
Sometimes the working triathlete is conspired against by the realities of day to day work, -27 degree Celsius and second coldest place on earth weather and life in general. To combat this elusive enemy of training and time I turned to the Coach Troy Spinerval time saver series. Getting on my trusty steed "Arethusa" - named after a Mountain against Highwood Pass representing my biking efforts to be a climbing specialist.
Today Coach Troy was my master as I did his Sprint / Power workout to the max. Considering former pro Troy Jacobson came out of hiding to race Ironman Arizona this last weekend with an impressive race I should pay attention. He placed first in my age category, 22nd overall at Ironman Arizona and will likely be the age group champion at Hawaii.

Time to get serious and make sure I am doing what it takes to get to the big show. So in that spirit I did the first 3 minute interval at 200 watts, then for the 12 sprint intervals of 10-15 seconds I worked my way up from 330 watts to 460 watts.
