The above graph shows the overall time per week that I've trained thus far. As you can see it's got a nice upward trend to it. I was taking a look at the last 18 weeks before IM Lake Placid and noticed I average 16 hours per week, including rest weeks! I've trained quite a bit less this time but I believe I've trained a lot smarter. The other main difference is that I would gain a lot of hours per week in the past from commuting. I have zero commuting in my life at the moment. Every session has a purpose. I'm hoping to complete over 20 hours training this week.
This week was a rest week. I'm not good at rest weeks. I was supposed to do 13 hours this week but only ended up doing 10. I just can't get motivated on rest weeks!
