3 miles in 25:40min.
My co-worker and friend is also training for a 1/2 Ironman and posted her monthly totals, prompting me to look up mine. I was surprised to find that I'm not too far behind her! I had a laundry list of reasons to NOT go on my run tonight, including the fact that totals were higher than I expected. But I just got back from my run and as always, feel fantastic!
Here are my monthly totals for January:
SWIM 9,800 yards in 7:16:00 min
BIKE 113.5 miles in 11:15:44 min (13.6 mi/hr)
RUN 46 miles in 7:00:20 min (9:08 min/miles)
With the increase in my level of activity (this is way more than when I just ran!) I'm finding that some days, I'm constantly hungry...especially if I start my day with a swim. While complex carbs are important for sustained energy and simple carbs are good pre/post workout, protein is really important for muscle recovery. Fortunately, Muscle Milk is delicious! I'm having one-two scoops of this almost every day.
|My breakfast: 2 scoops powder, 8-10oz. of cold coffee, ice & banana in blender. Yum!|
