The Week That Was – Ending 02/17/13

Slacker alert!

Not from training. Just from getting this blog post done in a timely fashion. Nothing exciting to report, as best I can tell. I think Brian has effectively turned my brain into mush, which he probably very excited about since I tend to want to analyze every single second of every single workout I do.

The Week That Was – Ending 02/10/13

It’s taken me awhile to post this, and maybe it’s because we took our first step backward, and maybe it’s just been because I’ve been tired/busy/lazy/_____.

The Week That Was – Ending 02/03/13

To my knowledge, there’s no deep self-analysis coming in this post. Just a recap of a long week of training, with lots of hard work. I set new records for weekly distances covered in running (definitely), swimming (definitely), and biking (most likely). The only reason I can’t confirm the biking numbers is because I’m OCD about my numbers, so I always run both my 910xt and my Edge 500 (in the event that a button gets pressed and the workout gets screwed up), and as a result my Garmin Connect numbers often have duplicate workouts. If anyone has suggestions on how to remedy this, feel free to share!
