Great workout this morning -- four workout sessions in about 26 hours!

The biking this morning is probably my last before my Du this Sunday -- I do have a TnT transition clinic with 10min biking/running on Saturday but that more or less doesn't count.  I've still got 24 miles to go for my March biking goal so will have to settle on only achieving 87% of my target.  Nevertheless, I increased my bike mileage in March nearly 52% over February, so am doing well in increasing volume.

I *may* do a short 20 min run tomorrow (Thurs), as scheduled, or may just rest and hydrate until the weekend.  Due to my knee injuries this month I cut way back, achieving only 71% of my March goal and falling about 24% from the running distance I had in February.  Better safe than sorry I suppose.

I'll most likely swim Thursday morning since the Du doesn't involve that sport.  I won't hit 100% of my March swim target (at 79% now), but I'm up 20% over February's distance so again, am increasing volume.

I'm going to set April's targets a bit more conservatively -- basically use the numbers of the first 3 weeks and let the fourth week before my Sprint be my catchup/taper week.  It probably makes sense to hit my targets by the end of the 3rd week anyways, at least so I don't feel pressured to use my taper week as a all-out catchup event.

I plan on increasing April's volume over March REAL distances by about 10%.

Didn't wear HR monitor today. Fastest time yet in the pool since I started in December.

Estimated burn of 410 kCals during the swim.


Coached swim w/ TnT group.

"Open water" swim in that coach had removed all the lane lines and it was an open pool.  Technique goes out the window when you know that people are swimming towards you with little guidance.  Only 1300 yards total but definately a workout.


 Great run at lunch on the WO&D trail.  Temp was upper 50's/low 60's, so very comfortable in shorts and long sleeved drimax.  Felt great to run at this pace, so know I'm ready for the Du this weekend.

Up for a few hours during the night with a sick kid -- completely wiped my plans for an early ride on the trainer.  Depending upon work schedule and plans with doctor will work something in today.

Taper week in general; Virginia Du on 4/2  (yeah!)
