Week 4 of the tri plan. The pain in my leg is now gone, but I’m staying off running for 2 more weeks. Swimming gets better, but I need more time in the week; anyone know how to solve that problem?
I’m recovering well from the latest leg injury, and don’t feel it anymore. I picked up the weight training a little this week, and got one long pool workout in. My balance was better, but I still tire relatively quickly.
Blue lines == actuals; Gray areas == my target range for that week.
Note: Where are all the graphs? I’ve run into an Excel 2007 ‘bug’ or feature where you can’t have multiple pivot tables of the same Excel ‘table’. I’m officially punting on fixing this for a while.
Work is really starting to creep into training time (I know… startup and all). But my swimming is getting better. I need to spend more time in the pool and prioritize time a little better (I spent 3 hours on Monday failing to track down a bug instead of swimming, and once I took 60 minutes off to relax, the fix came to me quickly. I should know better). I’ll work on that this week.
Continue with light leg work, more swimming, and better prioritization of work vs. workout.
I’m planning to try (again) for the NYC Marathon in November. If you’re interested in running either with me, let me know. Also, if anyone is interested in doing the Philly Triathlon (June) with me, or the Marin Century (August) with me, you’re welcome to join the team!
I’m way behind in other blog-updates. Why? Well, as you can see from my training numbers, work is eating into a lot of other areas in my life. For those who worry about that, don’t worry yet. I’m having so much fun doing what I’m doing right now, but had to cut back on something. If I stop updating my training log, I give you permission to hit me over the head with a big stick and remind me that balance is important. Of course, my wife gets ultimate “hitting me over the head” authority, and even as we speak is glaring over me with a big stick telling me to stop typing…
Thanks for reading.
