Went to the pool this morning. Had to share a lane with Flailing Arms Woman. Someone commented to me in the hot tub afterwards that I could have shared with him because he swims straight and keeps his arms to himself. I told him "No worries, it was good practice". He said "good practice for what?!?" Ha! I guess it's just a triathlon thing. LOL .
After the pool, I went to the gym for my abs stuff (rope crunches and ab curls) and a little bit of upper body work. Remember in February when my goal was 3x15 ab curls unassisted and I got to 3x10 assisted (and could do ZERO unassisted)? Well I'm now doing 3x10 unassisted and I'm confident that I'll get to my goal soon. Plus I think it's time to up the weights on the rope crunches. I'm convinced that determination is enough to overcome lack of natural ability.
Then after work I met up with my running group. I thought I was scheduled for 4 miles easy, but instead it was 1 mile warm up, 4 miles steady, and 1 mile cool down. My run was awesome!! I felt soooo good the whole time. I think the key was the warm-up. I'm going to try to remember to include a warm-up on my long run this weekend as well.
So yeah, I think the month came in like a lamb and went out like a lion. ROAR!
Ran 39.75 miles with two weeks off - not too shabby
Swam 7100 yards - Yeah, baby!
Went to the Gym 11 times - Booya!
Yoga - 1 session -
Cycling - nada.
Races - nada
Happy with my running, swimming, and progress with strength work. Swimming and Push-ups have replaced yoga for me this month it seems; that's probably not ideal. Also really need to get back on my bike
[Edit to add] Of course the highlight of the month was the 20th anniversary trip to Moorea with Husband (alone!).
Plans for April
Main focus is Dash-Splash-Push which is now three weeks away. Then I'll get ready to Run for the Zoo. Hopefully get back on my bike too. And of course keep up with the strength work at the gym.
