I just spent a couple hours copying all my training logs for 2006 from CoolRunning.com to TrainingPeaks.com, which is the website my coach uses to write my workouts, and where I log them for her. I was using CoolRunning as well because I like the format better. But it was too cumbersome to be keeping up 2 logs... I'm trying to cut down on my computer use, consolidating and condensing where I can.
Copying the info, I could not believe the weeks I was putting in, in January and February. If IM AZ registration had still been open, I could have done it. I was doing 2 workouts many days; two 100+ mile bike rides 2 weeks apart with a PR half-marathon the week in between. Running 6 or 8 miles a few days after a marathon. Biking 75 miles on Monday, 45 on Friday, 100 the next Monday. That would kill me now.
I keep telling myself I'm in my 2-week marathon-recovery period and not to be discouraged or take these couple weeks as representative of my fitness. Things are going to start picking up again this weekend. Tomorrow I'm on for my usual Thursday 30-mile ride to and from my mom's with probably 4 hours of fairly-heavy housecleaning in between; Friday is work at the gym 7-4 but a rest day from training; Saturday is work at the gym 8-2 and ride 40 miles; Saturday is run 8 miles, my first run since the Hatfield-McCoy Marathon.
I cannot believe what I was doing in January and February.
