In April, I feel like I did more biking than usual which is a good thing! Running is paying the price but I am sure it will all come full circle in May... Technically, I did double my mileage from March but it still isn't really adding up to much. I am not all that worried about it right now.
Running Miles: 48.75 miles.
Cycling Miles: 155.5 miles.
Swimming Yardage: 21,210. (it is an odd number because I swim in a 25m pool and the program I use to log my workouts coverts the meters to yards) We have a new swim coach who quickly realized we are able to swim a good bit more than 2000m in an hour which is what we had been swimming. I was glad to see the yardage go up.
Races: I rode in two charity rides this month, the Tony Serrano Ride and the One Can Ride. Both were great experiences and will pencil them in for next year. I met a new friend on the One Can Ride and we are planning more rides in the future. I also got to do the Dirty Girl Mud Run last weekend which was a muddy blast as well!
What I did to bust out of my comfort zone: Two charity rides. I also FINALLY met up with my tri group and my tri mentor for a group ride at Stone Mountain and an OWS. We did a bunch of hill repeats on the ride and was glad I went as I have ridden at Sotne Mountain many times before but would have never thought of doing hill repeats. (I mean, who does that on purpose, right? ha ha)
What I am watching: Revenge is back! Also still watching Smash. Quite shocked by the new turn of events at the end of this week's episode.... I have to say I am kind of over American Idol right now. CR and I used to watch it religiously. This season is just kind of blah. I have to say I don't really care... Is it just me?
What I am reading: Finished Catching Fire and I've Got Your Number. Both fun reads. Nothing new yet as I literally just finished the last book at lunch today.
Current excitement: Looking forward to riding the Iron Girl course this weekend with friends and then racing Iron Girl on May 20th. Also doing a century ride at the end of the month and meet up with more friends. Riding, riding, riding. I think this time last year I was just figuring out how to not have a death grip on the bike and still getting used to unclipping. No joke.
What I am loving this month: Still getting motivated by all the race reports, makes me wish some of my bigger races weren't so far away! I am also loving that the contract on my phone is up this month. Time for a new one. WOO HOO!
My favorite product this month: Tri Slide. I got to use it for the first time at an OWS with my tri group a few weeks ago. That stuff WORKS. My wetsuit was MUCH easier to get off than normal. I had my doubts, but am a believer!
What is going on in May:
- Iron Girl, May 20
- Century Ride in Hartwell GA May 26
Have a great weekend, everyone! Good luck to all the racers at IM St. George and Rev 3 Knoxville!
