Training and Life Update: March



Well, I had initially titled this post "mid-March," but realistically, it is the end of March already.  Where oh where has the time gone? I feel a bit behind in my training and a bit like I'm going to be playing catch up all season long already. Especially after spending the past week sick with a wretched cold that left me with no voice and no motivation to do anything beyond sit around the house. That said, I did have some great training outings in March and I am looking forward to moving past this cold and into some warmer weather and cycling outdoors!

The highlights:

Skiing: 




I finished the ski season on a strong note.  I finally started to feel like I knew what I was doing most of the time and I got to ski up to the Keogan Shelter one last time on the last day of the season. It took me almost 1/3 the amount of time as on my New Year's Eve ski from hell. Success!  And I got to enjoy the river pathway ski trail that was built at the end of the season.

Running: 




We have progressed my running beyond just running at MAF heartrate, though I haven't been able to do too many of the sprints prescribed by coach Jon because of some bad weather and then this silly cold. Hoping to get my speedy legs back soon! On my work trip to DC, I got to sightsee via a run - the best way to see a city!

Spring trail running is MAGIC!

Swimming: 

I was doing well getting in the pool up to twice a week for a few weeks there, but again the cold has prevented me from jumping back in the water. My goal is to head back to my masters practices after my upcoming vacation though.

Biking: 

Obsessed with my new Coeur Sports I Love Bikes Tee!
We have had some good sessions with our Wednesday night OTC crew and I got a few more Eurosports sessions in, but I feel like I have a long way to go with my cycling. I'm definitely excited to hit the roads though as soon as I'm back from my trip.

Strength: 

I got a few Crossfit workouts in with the gang at our friend's gym. It's always fun to challenge the body and get stronger!
