The race was fun; I ran 24:11 (7:48/mi) and was pretty happy with that time. 5th FOV. Pleased with myself for not running on Thurs., which helped get my legs rested a bit, and I swam more than last week. I also had a productive week of schoolwork!
M: 10.2 mi run
T: 7.2 mi run + 2025 yd swim
W: 6.6 mi run + 1325 yd swim
T: 2.3 mi walk + 1650 yd swim
F: 6.6 mi run + 1825 yd swim
S: 5k race (8.5 mi total) + 1325 yd swim
S: 6.5 mi run
goals this week: do my hip/glute exercises from the PT every day (except possibly today, as I'm traveling - day in Boston!) as my hamstring is a little sore again, day off from running, swim a bunch, serious progress on schoolwork. Spending a couple days house/dog sitting for my aunt, and I am looking forward to that.
Hope everyone is well.
maybe she's born with it, maybe it's chlorine

I also went to my first level 1-2 Iyengar yoga class. I've been doing the beginner class for a year and the level 1-2 class was an eye opener! Lots of different poses, so it's good for me to try this class out.

Dr TC - good work on your race.
Tri3 - happy training.
I had a good week last week and the highlight was a decent ride outdoors on the TT bike followed by a well-paced (for me) run. I didn't get to swim in the lake (it was storming) but I did find out that they have an aqua splash set up nearby: http://www.sylvanlakeaquasplash.ca/ so maybe an hour having fun on there can be my reward if I get over my anxieties.
This week has been going well; things are getting busy as a course I am on is coming to an end so there's presentations to be recorded, assignments to be turned in and an exam on Saturday. Just taking it one thing at a time.
I hope everyone is doing well.
Thanks for your messages.
I had a bad cycling accident at a 70.3 a few weeks ago. I am doing much better now but have had my share of stitches, plates, pins, and screws.
I feel incredibly lucky to have walked away with broken bones and road rash. As you may have guessed, my season is over and I have no races on the calendar.
When things are a little better, I'll start a PT program which will be most of what I do for a while. I'll update y'all here sporadically since it'll be pretty boring for a while.
It'll be a while before I'm swimming but I'm hoping to get on a stationary bike once my stitches come out and get back to running once my sling is off.
I have some details on my Instagram and will continue to update there as I recover -- if anyone wants to read more.
Wishing you all happy training.

Last week was OK. I slacked on the PT but hit 10 miles of run/walking over three runs. I'm up to 3:30/2:00 x 4 run intervals with a walk warmup and cooldown. My knee is holding up ok; I get a twinge of discomfort here and there but no real pain, knock on wood. Right now the plan is to run/walk a fun 5K in a few weeks and perhaps do a (flat) duathlon at the end of the summer. I've never done a du so even if I am last, automatic PR! haha I also went for another outdoor ride on Saturday and my knee did pretty well on the mostly flat route as long as I didn't have it in too high a gear.
I moved up a blood draw and checkup to see if my anxiety/chest tightness is thyroid related. I've never been over-medicated before but it has been a while since I had my levels checked. I really do miss swimming (and using my gym membership...) but I want to get this worked out first. To be continued.
