Here is a great race report for Toughman MN 70.3 2015.
My confidence was riding high after back-to-back 1st place finishes in my first two triathlons this year (Trinona and Minneapolis). Thus far this year I had a fantastic stretch of training this spring where I built a solid base for the year. I focused a ton on my cycling and swimming. There was a stretch where I put in around 18-20 hours per week, swam 20k yards per week, and about 200-250 miles in the saddle.
If nothing else, the absolute key for me this year has been consistency. With a lot of life things figuring themselves out, and a lot less traveling, I’ve been able to really build.
And it’s all starting to pay off. At the Minneapolis Triathlon two weeks ago, I clocked my first sub 2:10 Olympic distance time. So, I finally feel I’m in a place where I’m seriously contending for the podium each race.
