Re: How was your week? August 7 Edition [Dr. Tigerchik]
Thanks for getting us started, Dr. Tigerchik -- I'm glad you're getting settled in and congratulations on your 10K.

I hit all my goals:

3 or 4 swims, 3 bikes, 3 runs, 2 strength sessions, 1 yoga class, and daily p/rehab with a focus on riding outside in new tri position and an ocean swim race this weekend.

Swim: I did three of my swims in the ocean and one in the pool to work on technique. Unfortunately, I've developed an overuse injury in my elbow/shoulder. It was sore on Wednesday and I figured it was tendinitis from the big jump in my swimming yardage but it made for a very long 4,000Y ocean swim race on Sunday and now I'm going to take a few days off from swimming to give it some rest. I'll probably use my pool time to work on my kicking so if anyone has suggestions for kick sets please let me know.
Bike: I did one trainer ride and two outdoor rides -- my tri bike ride went better than the prior week's ride but is still a work in progress. My other outdoor ride was a series of hill climbs on my road bike and it felt good.
Run: All three of my runs were fine -- a track workout, an easy aerobic effort, and a long run with blocks of two mile intervals alternating at race pace and a 0:45 slower "recovery" pace.
Other: Yoga was lovely and both my strength sessions were good. I'll continue lifting until two weeks before my next 70.3.

This week, I am traveling to attend family's annual race (run, bike, horseback ride!) and plan on 2 swims focused on kicking, 4 bikes, 3 runs, 2 strength sessions, 1 yoga class, my daily p/rehab, and a nice hike at home. Hopefully my elbow will heal quickly so I can get back to swimming. My how the tables have turned :D
