This week is going to be mostly about getting ready for the self-supported half ironman distance triathlon I’ll be doing on Saturday 16/4 as prep to do Challenge Aarhus. You can join the event on Endomondo. Yes, it really is a triathlon even if Endomondo lists it as “other”. Also join the event on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=124035681003753. […]
What a month. After February I had a few things to get working on and in March I have definitely moved closer to half ironman fitness. One of the things that all endurance athletes struggle with is time. After February I figured that adding 10 minutes per training would take the training volume up by […]

I just had to participate in this one!!: The Challenge organization has come up with a new spectacular triathlon race. This is one is a half ironman distance race in my home city. Welcome to Challenge Aarhus.
Just had a swim session at the local pool. Practiced another 2+ kilometers of crawl strokes and worked specifically on doing the stroke under water with the shoulder rather than the elbow – a problem I’ve had forever. Try to change a stroke from something you’ve done forever to something that’s different. Pretty difficult. At […]
Just returned from another excellent coached swim technique session. Improved swim technique should help me in triathlons next year and things are moving forward.
