The close of another month is upon us. A short month, but not as short as in (non-leap) years past. How did we do for the month? First the week:
8,300 yards, 4 swims, 3:18. Cut down to around 2K per swim. Worked on some speed stuff later in the week. Starting to analyze my pool swims more now.
31.4 miles, 1:29. One Ride, no trainer. Left hip really started acting up at the end of last week. PT said to just do the one workout on Sunday, a brick. Felt good on the ride avg 21.1 mph
10 miles, 1:12, 2 runs. Just did 5M on Thursday and then 5 as part of the brick on Sunday. Felt good on the brick run, as I ran 7:05's.
20 min. 1 lift. Finally back to the weight bench! Man, am I weak! Gonna start hitting it twice a week for a while.
46.1 miles, 8 workouts, 6:20. Left hip was killing me Sunday afternoon. Is it my upper IT band or trochanteric bursitis? I think its bursitis, but it really sticks.
50,100 yards, 16 swims, 19:54. All time high in yardage! 50K yards is a pretty big milestone. Got a little motivated from the training challenge over on ST. Had some really good weeks and several 3,600 yard sessions. I don't seem to be getting any faster, but I surely am more efficient. 14K yards in one week and felt fine.
295.7 miles, 7 rides, plus 4hr on the Y trainer, 18:23. Shortest ride was 30M. Just riding on Saturday and Sunday. Starting to throw down 40M rides likes it's nothing. 4 rides avg over 21 mph. Best ride was probably a Saturday morning ride with an out and back on Doby's and then up to Lancaster highway and out Altura and back on 160. Almost 44M at 21.3 mph average.
61 miles, 12 runs, 7:21. Starting to get back into running. Just some 5M and some 8M runs. Mostly around 7:15 pace, but did get some 5M runs in at 6:50 pace. My hip started acting up near the end of the month so we'll see what that is about. Went to Greenapple and they think its my left IT band. We'll see.
385.2 miles, 39 workouts, 45:39. 7 weeks to Charleston
