Kona 2020: Week 19 (CTL: 105.9; TSS: 870.4)

Week 19 (ending May 14th): OK… slowly adding more volume again…this time with the run and the swim.

The last weeks I have been building volume with the bike (I find the bike the most challenging portion for me) but during that time of this build I have been leaving out the swim and the run… so this week was an effort to reintroduce these two…with the swim I also decided to make it an ocean swim.

security detail… this little guy was staying with me all the way south on my ocean swim… covering my back…

The ocean swim this last Saturday was especially fun…. going into yellow flag ocean (beach lifeguards present)… with a brand new client… client has a background in swimming… was good. We were able to go over a few differences between pool swimming and open water swimming.

About the cycling… I have continued with the three morning rides but cut it a bit shorter to allow more volume with the Swim and the Run… body needs some recovery… I have also decided that 2:30am wake up is just too early… if I want to start having clients in the mid afternoon… the body needs the extra hour and half sleep till 4:00am. Still get to see a sunrise…

Share your sunrise … and the road… have a great ride… what ever drives you

Bike was comfy… the swim was comfy… I only had one long run in there…

I swapped  a second run with a longer walk with Monty (our dog/assistant coach)… keeping some volume of weight bearing movement, but not as aggressive as running… have time to build… no time to get injured.
