I am usually really good about posting at least my goals for the week, but the last two weeks I have been a bad blogger, I have not posted at all. This has been mostly due to the storm of work I have been buried under lately and the volume of my workouts have taken a great amount of precedence. Last post I discussed the trail running race, my first. It went well, albeit slowly. Since then I have continued to focus on pushing forward and getting my training in. The last two weeks I have been consistent with my my attempt at getting a solid twenty miles of running a week and I have maintained my other triathlon related fitness (swimming and biking). So things are moving along well. Hopefully things at work will ease up and I can begin to share more.
My numbers for the last two weeks have been solid, yet the winter weather has made running outside very difficult. I have still gotten my workouts done on the treadmill. Since I am limited on time for this posting Ill post my numbers and running mileage breakdown as well as some goals for this week.
- 20 Miles of running
- Long run on trails this week.
- 2 Swim workouts
- 3 hours of spin-2 classes.
- 1 Strength session
- Running in snow on trails (Its coming down in buckets here and I am strategizing how to run in this and not freeze!
Not much more going on, still working on hitting the monthly numbers. The biggest win I have had recently was running the most miles I ever ran in a month. Last December my high was reached with 36 miles, I am right now at 72.3 miles and still have a week left. That is pretty much for now, time to go see if I can run in the snow and not freeze! Til next time.
