January 14, 2009
Although it's boring, I've been getting on the stationary bikes at the gym for an easy spin of 20 minutes to 1 hour (that's about all I can handle, even with the ipod).
It's been so nice here, around 70 degrees, which is quite unusual for January and there's nothing better than riding and running outdoors; unfortunately, I'm stuck inside for my "ride" and weight lifting regimen, but I'm enjoying our outdoor pool!
I'm swimming about 5 days per week and averaging about 4900 yds. per day; for me, that's pretty darn good! I feel I'm getting stronger and I hope that the cycling and running will come along quickly. I'll be able to take off my boot next week, but will take it fairly easy, maybe only running 1 mile on the treadmill the day I take off my boot. I want to make sure that I'm completey healed before going crazy with training.
My first race of the season will be Wildflower in May. I opted not to compete in any earlier races as this will give me plenty of time to get into race shape!
