April is a month that i ‘d rather forget from a training perspective. It started when I returned from a business trip to California – 2 weeks of a flu/heavy cold that I just couldn’t shake. I tried to complete some light training during this time. I didn’t push the pace and wasn’t swimming at all during that period.
Distance Time (hrs) Difference from last month Swim 11,000 yds 3.25 -6,350 Bike 177 miles 9.2 -52 Run 59.18 miles 8 -30 Other 9 -2 Walking 13 miles 3.5 off days 7 +3
I also had another strain in my calf, the left one this time. So for the last few weeks I have backed off the running and added some more physical therapy (part of the “other” category).
I have 2 weeks until my first race of the season – I hope that the calf is better by then, and I can’t wait to try the new bike in competition.
