March went by so fast. It gave me a few PRs, but it left me tired and heavy legged.
RUN: 232 miles
BIKE: 25hours and 40 min (includes one week of no biking to taper for the run)
STRENGTH: 2 hours
PLYOS: none (boo!)
Last week I switched gears toward triathlon training. I am cutting my runs to 5 instead of 6/week, increasing my biking to 4-5 instead of 3/week (will see how my privates will hold up to that, so far 4 has been manageable), trying to ride outside as much as possible (it is much harder for me to ride outside, and I am very slow!), swimming a long 2 miles+ session/week (this has become one of my favorite things), swimming with paddles (I am so much faster with them, and if I cheat with a pull buoy, I feel unstoppable).
I had an encouraging ride outside today. I managed to get down in aero, but it was very hard. I am going to take my bike to the shop and see if we can change the aero setup to make it less aggressive. I am currently set up to be very aerodynamic, but I doubt I will be able to take advantage of that for now. I need to lift the bars up a bit to make it easier to use them. Today I forgot to take my underwear of when I went for a ride, and it was pure torture. I will not make that mistake again.
I am so excited to go away with Chris in a few weeks. Although sad to miss some of the Boston runners, I am excited to go away and spend some quality time with Chris. This winter it's been mostly me working on the computer and him watching basketball in the evenings, in the same room, but not really interacting. We did not have any time for ourselves since the summer.
It's snowing in Boston. My back yard is already white. For some reason, this is not driving me crazy!
