Jan - Mar 2012 totals:
SWIM: 3,900 yards
BIKE: 102.26 miles
RUN: 255.81 miles
Average weight: 155.7
RUN WITH HENRY: 101.43 miles!!
(22.72 miles in Jan, 25.2 miles in Feb, and 53.51 miles in March.)
So I NEED to start hitting the pool. Three swim workouts for a total of 3,900 yards in the last 3 months? That's pretty crap-tastic.
I don't think I've ever logged over 100 miles of biking in March before, so that's great! I just need to keep this up. We'll see...
And my running is going FANTASTIC! I believe I've only had 1 three-month-stretch with more miles - while Coach Jen was training me to a sub-60 TC 10 Mile, I logged 295.89 miles from Aug-Oct of 2010. I've been telling people that my MILES are great, but I could use some better WORKOUTS. I've been running a lot with Henry, but I need to work in some more speed work.
I should also note that my last 5 runs (over the last 11 days and including 1 race) were all with Henry! That's my last 42 miles STRAIGHT!
I headed out for a bike ride on Saturday. I went on a pretty hilly 20 miler, and finished with a 19.2 mph average. It was nice to get out.
Then, later that night, Pharmie, Henry, and I ran some errands. We stopped at REI and Henry tried out a "Chariot Cougar2" bike trailer:
"Hey baby, you headin my way? Hop in!"
WE BOUGHT IT.
On Sunday, Henry and I got "helmeted up" for our first bike ride together:
After 2 laps around the block - he smiled and kicked most of the time!
Pulling into the driveway, looking though the Cougar2
After that, we played a bit, and then we headed out for a nearly 13 mile run! We pushed the effort near the middle, and did the middle 4 miles in 6:19, 6:02, 6:02, and 6:12 (24:35 total). We finished 12.8 miles in 1:27:18 (6:49 / mile). Henry slept hard from mile 3.5 to mile 12. When he woke up, he kept giving me the cheesiest little smile:
