I just finished my last scheduled workout before my taper begins for IMCDA. For those who don't remember what a taper is, it's when you back off your training intensity and volume to give your body a chance to fully rest. I do this before my "A" races. You can only effectively do a couple tapers a year.
All told the training leading up to this Ironman was:
Bike: 4136.68 Mi.
Swim: 149107 yds.
Strength: 43.25 Hrs.
Now you know why they say triathlon is a lifestyle, there is no time for anything else :)
