Ironman Los Cabos Training – 9 weeks to go...

It's a shame that nothing has been posted in between training updates, I don't want this to become just a training log, but for now this is what week 9 looked like. We had lots of snow that kept me indoors more than I would like. It was also a recovery week so a little lighter than normal. I had hoped to work a massage in as well but house hunting and Superbowl watching (boo) won out. 

Planned rest day

40 minute MAF run
75 minute trainer ride

4000 yd swim (longest in awhile) 

90 minute trainer ride

3000 yd swim
4 hour trainer ride (not too bad but would much rather be riding longer outside)

Snowy long run

Swim: 7000 yds // 2hrs 36 min
Bike: 77 miles // 6 hrs 45 min
Run: 15.8 // 3 hrs 4 min
Strength: 0 min

Total: 12hrs 25min

This definitely felt easier than the last few weeks, as it should for a recovery week. I am looking forward to stepping it up the next three weeks for peak training bring on 20+ hour weeks and hopefully riding outside! 


  1. What do you think of MAF training so far?? I actually think right now it's really helping me get stronger and faster.

  2. I'm also curious to know more about MAF training… is it just for running? I had a recovery week last week, too, and dang, it was nice :)
