The 2011 training is now back in full swing. My New Year's resolution is to spend more energy on bike miles this year. In a perfect world, my bike miles will be about 3-4x my running miles. 2010 was an unusual year, but since I don't have anything to compare it to, I will use it as a baseline.
Anyway, first two weeks on 2011:
week #1 swim-7200, bike-95mi, run-49mi
week#2 bike - 119mi, run-49mi
Snow, holidays and life getting in the way of swimming - seems like the pool has been closed for weeks now. I will need to make up some of the time in the coming weeks.
And now ... drum roll please ... best performances and recap of 2010.
I think I PR'd in every swim of 2010. LOT's of time in the water - wet suit free. I've improved a lot and it showed this year. Best swim goes to IMLP 64:42.
Best Bike goes to Pumpkinman 2:35. Not a fast time, but done without a lot of training. I am looking to do this race again in 2011.
This one is easy; Boston Marathon 2:49:53 - new PR. I am still trying to figure out how I am going to best this time in 2011.
Anyway, I am challenging myself to PR on the bike this year. I will take any PRs running this year too.
I hope everyone is well and looking at 2011 races. Looks like we are in for a tough New England winter, so hopefully we'll get some breaks for some outdoor cycling and long runs.
