Biggest training week of the year. 35 hours. In 2017, I did the Kona Ironman with the goal of it being a big training day for Ultraman. In retrospect I don't think it was a good idea, since with the taper and recovery I basically lost 2 weeks of training with one big day in the middle, plus I had a terrible race. Although I did win UM that year so who knows maybe it was good.

For 2019, I decided to go out to Kona again but not race the Ironman. Instead I would just train as much as possible with a 7 day mini-camp in the heat. I feel that was a much more productive use of time, but I guess we will find out soon enough!

The thing that I love about Ultraman is that nobody really has the answers. At the pointy end we're all experimenting with different approaches to training, equipment, and execution strategies.

Mahalo crew chief @ihersey for the support! And Devashish Paul for doing a lot of the week with me despite being recently run over by a school bus... 😬

Strength workout of the day: hike with 52lb weight on neck 💪⚡💪 all you need is a 5 year old that's the size of a 7 year old, and a good trail with decent incline.
