my official 70.3 theme song by Bon Jovi). I know I've seen improvements in all areas. In fact my run pace after a long bike is what my half marathon pace was with taper and rest. Still not super fast, but I'm feeling very optimistic I'm going to have a good race at Redman, especially with good conditions. I just have to keep focused through this heat and make super good efforts at proper recovery.
Right now I'm averaging about 90 miles a week's worth of swimmng, biking and running. It's about 7500m of swimming, 10-11 miles a week of running and about 75 miles of biking.
Speaking of focus, that's been a bit of a challenge lately. There's a ton of stuff going on with others around me, not to mention my own stuff. Somehow through offering support and/or compassion, I allow myself to be sucked in. I'm not sure how it happens, I honestly don't ask for it, but both my Husband and my BFF think I'm a human magnet for others who have problems or are suffering drama in their lives. I've had to re-evaluate some friendships in the name of maintaining my focus and sanity. It's all good though. I'm feeling better about it.
I had my surgery and now that's behind me, so I feel like I can move forward and put the emotional stuff behind me. I'm recovering well and today was my first day back to training. I have to say it felt really good to be back. Swim this morning was awesome. Of course it felt great, I've been off an entire week, right?
So I have an easier week ahead of me, ramping back up after having a week off.
