Aug 28, 2012 – Ironman Mike Aigroz

This workout was written for professional Ironman athlete Mike Aigroz as he was getting ready to compete at the Ironman 70.3 Ireland. Lots of “last minute” race preparations need to be done just a few days before a race and therefore one hour was all we had in the pool this morning. Mostly low-end aerobic recovery focused work including a few short sprints.
