April Totals

Only 50 days left!!

Not that I am panicking or anything but.


What a month it has been. Two half irons, two centuries, and a whole lot of hanging out with blogging friends.

I know it’s seems to be a reoccurring theme, but somehow this month was still lower than February. I don’t know what I did for that month, but I must have been superman!!

On a good note, while I notice that something’s are lower than February or March, the time it takes me to get to those totals seems to be going down. I hope this means that I am getting fast and not that I am just going on easier courses.

7 Swim – 16199 yd – 06:05:46 (10.12 miles)
10 Bike – 395.0 – 28:59:42
13 Run – 70.9 – 12:09:19


30 Workouts
47:14:77 Hours
475.2 miles
22544 Calories Burned

Let’s see, how does that compare to last month?

Swim: 28% less than last month
Bike: 7% more than last month
Run: 4% less than last month

Total Mileage: 4% more than last month
Total Time: 2 hours less than last month

I think for this month, I will need to focus on speed (like last month) and also work on tying up the loose ends. This probably means more bricks and more form.

Hopefully, I would like to try to hit the pool more often too!

Right now, it’s time to focus on the bike. Breathless Agony (isn’t that a GREAT name!)

Is the panic over Ironman or baby boy?? ;-)

Both are going to be here sooner that we know it.

Good luck this weekend, and I can't wait to hear all about it. Fantastic job on everything in April too.

NICE totals!

Breathless Agony would leave me breathless with fear at the start.

You'll nail it though. Look forward to hearing about it! This weekend I'm venturing into Northshore for the first time since Silverman, on the Tour de FIRE!

Look at those totals! You and Kelly are both getting so close to the finish line - what a momentous time for y'all!! I love the race reports (just catching up!) I'm so excited for you. (And? I'm a wee bit jealous that we couldn't be out there with all of you for Rage. I totally need to win the lottery so I can race on whatever side of the country I want to!) Peace!

The next 30 days are the most important days in terms of your IM training. If you can do anything with that else other than swimming,biking,running, eating, or sleeping then you are not training enough.

Other than that...have fun! Ha!

I think it's pretty normal to have lower numbers when doing long events vs. straight training (you tend to rest more before and after). But quality over quantity is what my coach has been emphasizing, although I seem to have plenty of qty too lately ...

Breathless Agony? Seriously, sounds like some horror movie :-)
