Happy May Day. April FLEW by.
April Stats: 225 miles (Total miles for 2011: 780 miles)
Run: 86 (down from 124 in March)
Swim: 2 (down from 8 in March)
Bike: 136 (up from 22 in March)
So as you can see, I am having a difficult time balancing my running and cycling. I needed to up my seat time but I still need to get more swims and runs in. Perhaps a "plan" would help - still have not finalized one and Philly is June 26th.... UGH!
On Saturday, I was supposed to join the DCTRI MoCo Group for a nice and easy 25 mile bike ride. I woke up to cool temps... I mean like tights and a windbreaker for a bike, but a skirt and long sleeve shirt for a run. You guessed it, I opted to skip the ride and run. I ran 12.4 miles in 1:43 (which is a 8:20 pace). WOW, where did this speed come from?
Later after the run, I had to confess to the group, "I am sorry I missed the ride. I am a wannabe triathlete addicted to running!"
And it is the truth. When I should be riding, I run. When I should be running, I opt for a ride. I KNOW what the solution - I REALLY need a plan. I had blogged that I was going to have a plan (over a week ago) and then I freaked out that I only had 8 weeks before my Olympic Tri... so I opted to still NOT settle on a plan. I need to increase my swimming and running in the next 5 weeks (one week for a minor taper). I am going to go with the 2 swims, 2 rides, 2 runs (probably more) for he next 5 weeks. Hope to narrow it down soon.
