this week's numbers were good all the way around. the swimming, the cycling and the running just fell right into place. nothing was sore (my left piriformis is behaving very nicely thanks to lots of stretching out) except for my wrist. an old cycling injury to my right wrist decided it wasn't having anything to do with pushups after monday's workout so i decided to let it rest. i'll have to repeat week 5 of the hundred pushup challenge this week. the first test of the season is coming up may 15th. i'm doing the olympic distance florida international triathlon at siesta key. i'm very happy with my swimming the last couple of weeks and can tell a difference that the extra time i'm putting into it is going to pay off. here are my totals for the week:
total time: 4:00:00
total distance: 30.5 mi.
total time: 12:32:00
total distance: 251.75 mi.
total time: 2:46:00
total distance: 7100 m.
hundred pushup challenge/weights x 1 (stupid wrist)
