March is over!

March came in like a lion and went out like a lamb. What a wild month!

We sold the house in SC, it closed on monday. So we're homeless now, but not for long. Kelley took the kids out to the coast for a few weeks, I'll be joining them tomorrow for a fun easter weekend. Then it's house hunting time! At least I think we will be able to land a pretty good deal.

Wha ha happened?

March had but one race, the Tobacco Road marathon. I'm already looking forward to running it again next year. Here's how the totals came down:

Swim: 7 swims, 8500 yds = 4.83 miles
Bike: 5 rides, 95 miles
Run: 5 runs, 44.5 miles, 1 full marathon
Strength: 3 Tri Power workouts, 45 minutes
Yoga: 4 session, 2 hours

There was a taper week and a recovery week before and after the marathon. So I feel ok about that. I need to get the bike milage up to around 100 miles per week, not 95 miles a month. We moved out of the SC house the weekend before the marathon, and I really took a good taper. So while the counts may not look that high it was actually a productive month.

This week, I finally hit a slowdown today thanks to work. It's shaken down like this:

Monday: AM TriPower, Lunch 1000 yd swim, 30 mile bike after work
Tuesday: AM yoga, 10 mile bike/3.1 mile run brick after work
Wednesday: AM TriPower, lunch 1500 yd swim, 20 mile bike after work
(that's 9 workouts in 3 days people)
Thursday: AM yoga. I was supposed to hit a 40 mile lunchtime bike ride with the company owners from work but I got swamped. I had to work late, so I missed my after work long run too.
Friday: Plan is AM TriPower and 1000 yd swim over lunch. 12 workouts this week will be fantastic.

This should be the norm going forward for a while. It was 85 degrees and sunny here today. It's time to train!

Definitely should get a good deal. It's a buyer's market. Happy house hunting!

It was 80 here yesterday! Which is pretty much unheard of here in Minnesota! The weather has been just fantastic lately. It's been great doing all my runs outside in shorts & a t-shirt.

You really had a huge month. Between PR'ing that marathon and closing on the house - that is huge!

Enjoy your time w/ the fam this weekend!!

Congrats on selling the old heezy! Don't know how you do 12 workouts a week! Definitely inspiring. :)I'm so jealous you have time to shower during your lunch break. Hanging out in my own stink sucks. LOL.

I'm glad the month at least ended like a lamb :) I'm happy to hear you closed on the house!

I love that you outline your workouts by the month. I'd be interested to see how my month looks!
