Also, my running is sub-par this month. I am at about half of what I did in August and I slacked in August as well. Luckily the one good thing is I upped my cycling miles so I feel good about that. I felt so guilty about the other two categories that I woke up at 5am this morning (which I NEVER do - I like my sleep) and went to the gym for a 4 mile run and 2000 meter swim. So I've already swam as much in October as I did in September. Here are the pathetic stats:
- Cycling: 217.80 miles
- Running: 24.63 miles
- Swimming: 2000.00 meters
In order to kick this slacker habit I am going to post what my numbers should be up until the race on October 25th. Here is what my schedule calls for:
- Cycling: 269 miles
- Running: 62 miles
- Swimming: 15,600 meters
Let's see how I do.
The weird thing is after this lax month I actually still feel pretty good. Everything is getting easier and I've had a few successful bricks (biking & running) that have boosted my confidence. I also added yoga into the mix this month. Sellwood Yoga opened up about a block from my house and Aud and I have been going to their Yoga for cyclists, runners and athletes class on Monday nights. The owner/instructor is awesome and a TNT alumni, I highly recommend it.
My plan for post-race is to take November easy and concentrate more on increasing my strength and flexibility. I think yoga will play a big part in that. My next post will probably be a Big Kahuna race report so until then....
