Actually, I thought I swam more than twice. Hard swim or triathlon training is not as important right now, as the 100 miler training plan is in full swing. In fact, I think 162 miles is a new record for me! One of my goals for the year is to get in a 170 mile month, and it looks like that's going to be December. So close this time! I did enjoy a great week in the hot yoga studio as well as plenty of time on the mat at home, but I could always use more yoga time.
I really stuck with the 100 training plan very closely until the weekend before thanksgiving. A cold hit my sinuses pretty hard, and the planned 14 miler that sunday turned into only 2 miles. Then over the holiday I missed two more runs. But overall the plan is working out really well, I feel great now, and knocking down the plan feels like I'm really actually going to be prepared for the Umstead 100.
The one marathon I did in November was the Lower Potomac River Run in Maryland. Great race, tons of fun, nice trail. Lots of other good stuff going on too. The kids took a karate class and loved it, we got to visit my family in SC and had a wonderful time (Thanksgiving post still to come).
The bad is still with my weight. I'm still about 10 lbs heavier than I should be for this much training and it is going to catch up to me eventually. But after turning 40 the pounds just don't shake off like they used to. ugh. I'll figure it out eventually.
