Training update

It’s been a weird couple of weeks. I think yoga combined with multiple weeks over 50 miles killed me. Also poor hydration. I would run then go to Bikram yoga – or do yoga then run. I don’t really think about electrolytes unless I’m running – so I failed to replace them after hours of sweating from Bikram.

This was the week of March 15th – I did 56.4 miles. 8hrs and 14 minutes of running. 5.5 hours of Bikram yoga

I felt fine though. Until I hit a wall. Complete fatigue, for about a week. Then I got sick – minor cold – but still, no fun.

The week of being sick I still managed 49.8 miles – out of my goal of 60.

And this week was cutback week. I took full advantage with a measly 2 runs – so far. And 1 hour of Bikram.

I only have 3 more days of paid Bikram left. Not sure If I’ll use them. It was a fun experiment. Definitely helped get me through the last part of winter. But I’m over it.

Mileage for March was 195.5 – If I didn’t take a few days of rest/easy I would have been over 200 again…. lame. Then again – I’ll have plenty of months over that now that the snow is gone. So I’ll cherish these easy weeks. I also did 15.5 hours of Bikram last month.
On another note – My computer died. Which explains the lack of blog posts. It was kind of nice not spending hours on the computer. However this mornings 4am wake up meant I needed something to do – So I’ve currently hijacked Kyles computer. But Matt B is a genious and has supposedly fixed my 8 year old Dell! Or at least gave me more time to save up for a new one. BFF right there.
I’m getting really nervous about all of the races coming up. Mostly over things out of my control. I’m scared the end of May will come with bad timing. Cayuga is the main concern. Guess we’ll see.

The End. Happy Easter.
