I figure I better throw in an April recap before the end of May gets here! April was definitely a fun month.
SWIM: 31,250 yards
Little build in swimming during the last 2 weeks of April in anticipation of the Y Nationals swim meet. First open water swim was at the end of April as well! The water was a bit chilly still but it was nice to get outside.
BIKE: 204 miles
Biking was a little low last month because of all the traveling I did on the weekends – that really cuts into my long ride times. Plus I had 2 trainer rides (because of thunderstorms) so that probably adds another ~2 hours to the count.
RUN: 62.3 miles
Drills, drills and more drills. The first 3 weeks of April my workouts were 3 miles or less (except races) with the entire focus on form. I’ve basically started from scratch and that also means starting at the beginning with distance. So it’s been a slow build. But I think I am getting better so maybe there’s something to it! It felt very strange running so little, but I’m sure my coach knows what she’s doing so I’m sticking to it.
Crosstrain: 5 or so hours. Lots of function strength focusing on hips/glutes for running form.
I probably did some other interesting stuff last month but I can’t remember. Coming up in May:
Y Master’s Nationals swim meet – Ok well this already happened because I’m slow but it was a mix of swim meet and Florida vacation so it was pretty great
Raleigh 70.3 relay – I’m joining 2 of my friends to be Team Wonder Women at Raleigh. I’m swimming (obviously) so I’ll probably be training through this weekend. My coach is determined to get me into shape (or kill me, not sure).
And that’s about it for April!
