Greetings everyone!

A recent bike crash put me out of commission for a couple weeks this month. Barely any swimming and some biking.

I did keep up with my February run volume though.

Bike: 10h 47m 24s - 168.84 Mi
Run: 6h 25m 58s - 36.63 Mi

Bike: 24h 06m

Run: 20h 07m 07s

Strength: 8h 08m

I have really been training a lot (for me) and hope I can stay healthy till my HIM in May and that it all pays off, after somewhat of a bad-luck year last year! One more month of training before the race! Funny--I was joking with my tri-buddy (training for the same race) that it's starting to be a part-time job. Adding up the numbers and dividing by 4, it's getting there--almost 16 hours/week. I like training....now if I could just get paid!

Swimming: 31,522 yds @ 1:29/100yd ave

Bike: 779 miles @ 20.5 mph ave

Run: 70.6 miles @ 8:13 MM ave

Some very impressive numbers from you all! Here's a 60yr/old just one year "back into it", after about 25 years "out of it":


Bike 316 miles
Run 32 miles including (2) 5K races, AG Silver in both
Swim 11,000 yards

I should be swimming at least double this and probably 3 times as much. Hope to build the swimming considerably in April. Also plan to increase the run volume about 10-15% and drop the bike volume a little.

How's the yoga working out for you? I've been considering throwing that in my routine.

very very well, at first it was a bit of an impact on my training due to soreness, but I think it is helping my breathing and core strength significantly. It also kind of serves as a reset button for my week, I highly recommend it.

It'd have to wait until after IMTX for just that reason, I don't need to add anything that could throw me off at this point, but it's something I've been wanting to do.

A couple of weeks ago, we were playing around with the kids and doing hand stands leaning against a wall. My wife had no issues, but when I tried, I flopped down like a sack of potatoes. It probably had a lot to do with the heavy swim set I did that morning, but it made me realize how specialized the muscles we develop are and I'd like to use something like yoga to even that out a bit. It seems like it'd be a good way to build overall strength.

AND BALANCE. Think about running, you're balancing on 1 foot the entire time, using muscles from toe to head to create a proper alignment.

Running and pedaling (+130 miles pedaling) are up from Feb, swim is way down due to shoulder issues and the only pool I have access to being shutdown for a week. Overall very happy though and I am really excited to see my running is up and pedaling volume is almost double what it was for March of '13 when I was training for the same race, IMCDA.

Haven't played in a while, but March was a consistent month for me, so here goes. 

Felt good to be back into a groove...

Most of those thinking about tackling a long swim instinctively feel it’s necessary to Do much to build endurance - more yards, harder laps. But a focus on Receiving is ideal for long distances.

Good memories are crucial to your success in the water. Trying to swim laps before you are comfortable in the water is likely to reinforce your anxiety, so avoid the white-knuckle approach.
