Not much going on this week as you can probably tell from my lack of posting. It pretty much was a rinse and repeat of the prior week, almost, kinda, sorta! In good old bullet point fashion:
On the grand scheme of things I have blown through the 1700th training mile for the year, today is actually the 100th day of the year so that’s not a bad daily average!
Other than that it’s business as usual!
Well if you saw that last post you saw what my Q1 and March Mileage and Times were but here are some high and low lights:
Overall I am pleased with the month. I figured out that I overcooked the first week with nearly 200 miles in a week and over 16 hours of training. I backed off and found a better balance with less quantity of cycling but making sure that the quality was there. For now there seems to be a sweet spot at around the 13-14 hours per week, right now I am feeling less beaten up and able to bounce back reasonably well. With the increase in running, some of which was forced onto me due to crappy weather, my overall mileage was down compared to January and February but in terms of time I am actually a couple of hours up.
The focus for April is to try and maintain the balance I have and add in the missed core work along with some strength work, I picked up a Triathete specific weights book and I hope that I can create some simple sets that will help me get Harder Better Faster Stronger! Beyond that I need to get a replacement wetsuit and hope to get some open water time this month. So April is here, let’s roll!
7 weeks till race day!
