It’s that time again! Another month has passed and I have filled up another Excel spread sheet with my training hours and distances. Unfortunately, this month, like in February, I had glute spasms that cost me some cycling time but I have since started seeing a PT and doing strength exercises and so far so good! Keeping my fingers crossed it doesn’t come back again because I am 3 weeks out from 70.3 NOLA and 7 weeks out from IM Texas so I cannot afford taking time off from cycling. Well here is what my training looked like in March.
60:48:14 total training time (highest total to date)
Swim: 10 hours and 49 minutes totaling 34800 yards
Cycling: 28 hours and 12 minutes totaling just under 500 miles
Run: 20 hours and 10 minutes totaling 158 miles
I also had a few hours of cross training to total up to that 60 hours. Another good month of training and I finally got a race in on Sunday! I also went for my first 100 mile ride Saturday. The body is feeling good and I can’t wait to race 70.3 NOLA in a few weeks. I will have a race report for Sunday’s half marathon up sometime soon (I hope).
