Forced day off.

Okay, well I was a little too enthusiastic with my training. I ran on Sunday, then swam and ran on Monday, then rode my bike on Tuesday. That proved to be just a touch too much. Yesterday my knee started acting up and I was having trouble walking. I have no cartilage in my right knee so I have to be careful with it. Turns out running 2 days in a row is a big no-no. the knee didn't really hurt it just felt weak and unstable. So I decided to take today off. I needed to revamp my training schedule anyway since I can not run 2 days in a row. Previous experience has shown if I leave a day in between my knee is much happier. I can bike on that day or swim of course, just not run. So that's what I did today. Tomorrow though it's right back to it. Another bike ride is on the schedule and I'm looking forward to it. I just hope it's a little warmer tomorrow :)

Yikes! Listen to your body. The only time I run 2 days in a row is 1 mile off my long bike Saturday. Friday is a 4 mile run. That's the beauty of triathlon. We can train all we want without consecutive days of the same old thing. Sounds like you're doing very well. Keep it up!

A new week and time to put the vacation behind me

  I seriously have been letting the vacation that didn't happen really get to me. I didn't realize I was doing that, but almost ever...
