Weekly Update – March 26, 2011

This week was fairly productive. I got several good workouts in, which is great, and the scale numbers are exactly the same as last week. On a personal front, the process of working through a couple of blog posts here helped me make some decisions related to my career that make me happy too. I’m still a little short on the sleep front, but I’m trying to get to bed earlier and sleep more.

I had another great long run on Sunday – finished 13.1 in 1:56:27! That’s my best ever, by more than 2 minutes. I did find, though, that by running that fast for my long run, my legs were heavy the rest of the week, and I had a harder time doing any speed work during the week.

I did get to the pool twice, which is progress, and had four good bike rides. I was very satisfied with that. I may be trying to do too much too fast, but I’m still feeling pretty good, with no significant twinges indicating the risk of an injury.

With 5 weeks until our first race, I feel good so far, and think I will be able to meet my goal of breaking 2 hours in the half marathon on May 1. I’m just waiting now for the weather to warm up and the snow to melt so we can start training outside!
