In the past few years, he has really put his name out there when we’re talking about Middle-Distance racing: Frederic Funk. Last Sunday, he finished second at Ironman 70.3 Kraichgau, making up for his disappointing race – one week earlier – at Challenge Family The Championship, where he DNF-ed. On Instagram, Funk, who’s always open about his training, shares an insight into his race week schedule before these two events.
Before Samorin Funk shows to have trained a total of 13:27 hours, which is more than three hours less than he did before Ironman 70.3 Kraichgau a week later. Before Samorin, Funk swam 15.4 km in 3:55 hours, biked 276 km in 7:27 hours and ran 30.5 km in 2:05 hours. That gave him a TSS (Training Stress Score) of 752.
That TSS was much higher after his Kraichgau race week: Funk then had a TSS of 1085. No wonder, because he trained quite a bit more. Funk spent 3:45 hours in the water, swimming 15.2 km. He rode 319 km in 9:02 hours and ran 61.5 km in 3:58 hours.
