Two long workout days back to back

Day 164 Swim 85 minutes - 4.5km, Bike 165 minutes - 77km, Run (Water) 50 minutes

Total on week 605 minutes

Day 2 in a row of 5hr plus training. Swam again at the Canyon Meadows pool, more continuous than yesterday but a new workout set

1000m w/u (250 technical cycle as usual X 4)
500m kick
5X100m on 1:45 averaged 1:30 per 100
500m kick
5X100m on 1:45 averaged 1:30 per 100
500m kick
1000m pull buoy (17:00)

Not overly fast but not pedestrian either.

Did a 50 minute water run immediately after and then went as a family to the new TRON movie in 3D IMAX, kids all loved it! After the movie did the bike ride inside and watched 1996 Ironman Hawaii for the last part of it to stay motivated. I needed the boost today.

It's going to be a long week going after the volume level I want but I am holding back on the intensity and working on my base in order to build the engine (as Kyle M encouraged)
