....when I was just bike racing. 19 hours of training last week. 19!!! Included in that was 260 miles of riding, a bunch if water-running (injured calf), a bit of actual running (run / walk protocol) and just under 10K yds of swimming. If I put in 19 hours / week on just the bike, I would have put in ~380 miles. Hell, the 260 miles I did do would have been a massive week for me back when I was bike racing. This IM training is just ridiculous....I don't know how people do it every year (or multiple times per year).
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

I've said that a lot to myself recently because I also have a much higher mileage volume than when I was racing and every year in June when the local mountainous stage races roll around ask myself what if I were to pin a number on...? Maybe next year.

Which IM race are you targeting?

IMWI in Madison. But I have the IM 70.3 Racine in 3 weeks. Was hoping for a decent result in Racine, but 3 weeks with no running should put paid to that idea.

Madison is September 7. In between I will probably race the USAT Nationals since I qualified a few weeks ago at Leon's Triathlon. I'm gonna get completely crushed, but it should be a fun experience.
