March was a little easier because I had a week of taper before my first 50k and a week of recovery after it. Still got in some good training! Here's the scoop:
Swimming - 26,800 yards - I'm swimming 3500-4500 yards in each swim now. And, feeling great! I still find this a surprise. I'm not as fast as I once was, but even with the muscle weakness in my arms, I'm feeling pretty good in the water.
Cycling - 262 miles - Got in some good rides in March. Still some on the trainer where I always cut my planned distance down to 75% of my outdoor plan. I got to ride with Kat up to Red Rocks and show her that masterpiece. She loved the climb! ;)
Running - 132 miles - Some really fun running this month including my first 50k trail race. Check out my previous blog post for that race report. I did another 20 mile trail run followed the next day by a road half marathon. A hillier course than the one in February, and I ran it 7 minutes faster even on really tired legs. Felt great!
We had pretty great weather all month and dry trails to run. Except that one day when Kara and I ventured down to Larkspur. A little snow, but still a beautiful day. And, I still can't believe I ran 33 miles on some hard trails in Moab. It was awesome! And, I had the privilege of running a really fun St. Pat's Day 5k with Tracy and my girls to celebrate Tracy's comeback to running.
Rest days - 6 - One was to rest up for the 50k. Two were to recover from it. The rest were just working around the family schedule.
I hope to do more swimming, cycling and running with all of you in April. Join me anytime!
