Training for IRONMAN for some is a full time job…there are people who have turned professional, but I am not one of them 😉 I have a full time job (an 8th grade science teacher) and still find time to train for IRONMAN.
The Iron Hippie and I just completed week #10 or our 36 week training program for IRONMAN Wisconsin 2014. With some minor variations in duration and intensity of the workouts, this is what my typical workout week looks like:
14 hours & 10 minutes of training this week…that doesn’t include the preparation time, travel time to and from the gym or refueling/recovery time. The duration of my weekly workouts will only increase between now and September 7, 2014.
Do you have the available time and determination to train for IRONMAN?
Week #10 Totals:
Swim: 4600 yards
Bike: 72.3 miles
Run: 18.7 miles
Strength Training: 2 hours & 15 minutes
Hot Yoga: 2 hours & 30 minutes
