Last week I decided to increase my training. That was before I saw the Oncologist. I still managed to get a good weeks worth of training inspite of everything. This weeks stats:
Run: 29.5 miles
Bike: 65 miles
Swim: 3,000 yards
Weight: 190 lbs.
I did a long run on Saturday rather than Sunday. I did 10.5 miles on the dreadmill. It was a long slog to finish but I was able to see it through. But doing the long run on Saturday left me empty for the long ride on Sunday. I was only able to get in 15 miles before I was exhausted. I think the key here was not eating enough on Saturday after the run. I felt good on Saturday but I wasn't hungry therefore I had no gas for Sunday.
During my ride it wasn't that I was sore or anything, it was just a no energy feeling.
This week I will concentrate on the run once again since I will be traveling on Thursday to NJ for the July 4th weekend with a rest day on Sunday. My goals for the week ending 7/4:
Run: 42 miles
Bike: 50 miles
Swim: 3,300 yards
I'm hoping I'll be able to spend more time on the bike but we shall see.
