Back at it

Early last week I was had to put a hold on the training. A stomach bug hit me for three days followed by my allergies flared up for the last 4 days making breathing very difficult. Tonight I returned to a light weight workout with some core training too. I have a tough few weeks ahead of me training wise, but it should be fun. The weather outlook for the next week has the temps creeping into the mid 90's.

Great weekend training

I had a great weekend training. Weather is perfect outside. I'm stepping up my training this week with just under 2 months to my next race. Heart rate monitor training with my Mio Quest is right on track. With my late afternoon rides lately coming close to dusk I'm going to have to start the waking up early before work schedule to get my training in and scale the evening workout to running.

Warmer weather is here to stay

Today's high hit around 92 degrees, with summer just around the corner. This means earlier workouts are in the plans. Trying to avoid the heat by having to get out and ride or run before the blistering sun rises. Today I got a 15 mile ride in just before the sun went down.
My next race is two months away from today. I am feeling halfway prepared with a lot of work to be done in the pool and around the track. I was excited last weekend I was able to run my first negative split mile, with 20 seconds to spare. Feeling my running is on the right path.

Working on my run

I have never been a strong runner and I am not afraid to admit it. For the past two years I have worked on my running here a there and feel I have become stronger at it, but it could still get better. My run distance has increased in the past few weeks with the training I am doing for sprint race in May. I have found some drills to work with and look to see if this will help my times any in the weeks to come.
