When I got home the wife was not back from helping the mother-in-law so I decided to jump on the bike for a good ride.
Distance: 12 Miles
I basically did hill repeats and then rotated and did several short sprints. I felt just fantastic afterward and enjoyed a great relaxing evening with the wife and the 4 year old monster!:)
Last night I had the chance to review my logs and take a look at my May totals and I was very pleased.
Ran: 52 Miles
Biked: 85 Miles
Strength Trained: 4 per week average
Very happy to finally see consistent strength training for a solid month and it will continue. I'm still not seeing the scale weight move much still stuck around 210 but the inches are falling and I'm starting to see the benefits of my hard work in the gym. Very pleased with my bike mileage and that will continue as well this month. I still managed to get over 50 miles of running in and those were really quality miles for me. June will more then likely be a slightly higher number. Marathon training will start in about 5 weeks. Once I decide on a plan and tweak it for me I will share. Mendy was nice enough to share her plan and I may still take that and tweak it a little for me. There is only 23 weeks to go so it's fast approaching!
Today I got another good strength training session in at lunch this time with slightly lighter weight and very controlled movements. Tomorrow will be my first run since the race and I'm looking forward to hitting the pavement, it will be just a nice easy recovery run!
Hope everyone has a great Monday! - Jason
