I took a bit of a break last week in terms of writing, lots going on at work and in life but I am also realizing that continuing to share my journey needs to take some priority as well. So I am going to start off by recapping the past two weeks and then we will get back into a groove our regularly schedule programming of 1 – 2 posts per week.
The last two weeks of training have been good, I’ve felt a sense ease on the bike thanks to the mileage I put on my legs over the winter months as I made indoor riding a priority, being back in the pool has been a welcomed addition to my week as I have missed being in the water and it is still to cold to be out in the lake. The run is a different story, last week I actually took the week off to rest my hip, while things are improving I am still not 100% sure what the root cause if of this discomfort but I’m trying to listen to my coach and my body by taking it easy with the pavement pounding since that seems to be what is aggravating it.
The next few weeks are crunch time, there less than 4 weeks until race day and I am well aware that there is still work to be done as I prepare to clock in my first Olympic distance time as my baseline for a potential fall race and the hopes of training for a 70.3 next season. I’m going to keep my summary simple this week, numbers focused as I get back on track with writing and also try to ensure that I get 8 hours of sleep tonight.
