It's a great day when I get to be on deck and it's a doozie of a week when I get to do it twice! Here's today's workout that I got to dish out... while it's fun to suffer in the pool, it's even better creating an environment where others can suffer together and grow st...

My lovely bride to be put together a playlist of music she'd like to have played during our cocktail hour. It's a solid mix and I've been listening to it non-stop all weekend (while at a friend's wedding in Wisconsin). 

Enjoy!

What?!?! 3x1000, you're crazy man!! For whatever reason, Masters swimmers despise doing distance work (at least the majority of them) so the longest set we get in a workout is 200's. As part of an Ironman build up, I toss in this 3x1000 workout. It's semi mind numbing,...

Continuing the theme here of Ironman Taper workouts since IM Chattanooga is this weekend. Here's my go-to bike workout that I typically give a few days out from race day, Ideally Wednesday. If it gets moved to Thursday I drop the main set to 2 rounds instead of 3. This...
