I am still only running every other day, so my weekly mileage is low, like 9-12 miles. Don't laugh, please. Since things have been feeling well, I'm gonna try a 4-5 mile run this week. Fingers crossed everything feels good. If I have no pain by the end of this month, I'm going to start to step things up, which will be right on time to start triathlon training.
Swim and bike training have been going well. I have been consistently getting to the pool 3 days/week, swimming between 2,000 and 2,500 yards. The bike is a little less consistent, but with the weather hopefully starting to improve here in Seattle, there will be lots more riding outside. In fact, yesterday I was able to get out and do 40 miles. There was a good deal of climbing, and some slow neighborhood riding which brought our average down to 13.3 mph. I'm not too concerned with speed on the bike right now, just getting miles in. The cool thing about this ride was that I learned how to connect routes to make a really long ride right from my front door. I was always at a loss of how to connect two routes, but my friend showed me the way and now there are endless miles I can ride! Hooray to tour guides!
