18 Weeks to go

I have about 17 weeks till Boise.  Have I mentioned I still haven't actually registered for the race? I haven't.

I want to keep track of my training, week by week and I figured this was the easiest way to do it.  Here's how last weeks training went:

January 28- February 3-I think this is week 18

Ran:6 miles
Biked: 52.4 miles
Swam: ZERO What the hell is going on?  My swim day was Friday, but I got my hair cut and colored, so I didn't want to get in the chlorine.

New hair.  Still getting used to it. 

Strength/stretching-TRX and some stretching.  Not enough. REALLY going to try yoga this weekend.

Good news, my hammy is feeling much better.  I ran 4 miles yesterday and didn't feel any pain.  I'm still getting tight in my right hip and calf, but I'm working on it.

Even better news-Ravens won the Super Bowl!!  So exciting.  The whole thing made me a little homesick and I'm sad to be missing the parade tomorrow.  But we did go to Erika's party, which was fun.  Even if there were a couple Steelers fans there.

I have a really busy week and I'm worried about fitting in all my training sessions.  I know I can do it, just need to be creative.

  1. I am have not swam since my last race in September, this week is not going to be so fun for me getting back in the pool

    The game, after the blackout, was entertaining, kept me interested.

    I have a small interest in the Ravens, I read a book called "Next Man Up" by John Feinstein, it takes a very detailed, behind the scenes look of the Ravens, I really liked the book, passing it along in case you are your husband are interested

    1. Glad I'm not the only one neglecting the pool!

      Thanks for the book recommendation. I'll have to check it out.

  2. I think the last time I went swimming was August. Yikes.
