Here's a glimpse at my total training volume for the month:
|Bike:||24h 25m 31s - 463.72 Mi|
|Run:||13h 12m 21s - 100.48 Mi|
|Swim:||14h 21m 50s - 45700 Yd|
It was a pretty solid month all around. Not nearly enough of those bike miles were outdoors, but I'm trying to rectify that this month. I was shocked at the running total. If you had told me at the beginning of January, after running all of 4 miles in December, that I would have a 100 mile month in March I would have laughed in your face and questioned your sanity. Thankfully the hip is holding up (I know I say that every week, but I still think about it every run and I will continue to do so until I get through Sept 12).
This month will be a little different training wise. I'm dropping a swim workout during the week so I'm 4/4/4 for s/b/r sessions. That will allow me, with the help of some crafty scheduling, to take a true rest day if needed. Currently I have been dedicated 2 days a week to just swimming, no running or biking, and not taking a true rest day. Recovery wise I feel that my body is appreciating this approach compared to what I've done in the past so I'm not entirely sure that I want to change anything. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?
April should go quickly though. Like I said we're already a week in. I've got a 10k on the schedule and am contemplating another 5k just for the heck of it. I get to eat donuts during the race so it's hard to pass up. Then a short mini taper for Alcatraz and I'm off to San Francisco. It's going to be a short month indeed.
