Dear friend where have you been? Or Where was I, oh that’s right, I was doing that marathon training thing.
Well, either way I’m back!
I really missed swimming these last few months and I’m glad to be back.
Walking back in the pool I got a lot of strange looks, I imagine the folks that run the pool must have thought I drowned or moved to the moon. I used to swim Monday thru Thursday and then all of a sudden I’m gone.
The worst thing about missing the pools was the guys I swim with got so much faster while I was away, LOL.
I swan Tuesday and Wednesday and I plan on swimming Thursday and Friday.
Today I swam 950 meters today and I felt pretty good, just a good steady pace swim with a few pickups at the end.
I am trying to work back up to and surpass my pre marathon training days; I would like to be swimming 1600 meters a day. I’ve got to be able to swim 2000+ meters at IM 70.3 FLA! Although I am still looking for a HIM training plan.
So, I’m pack in the pool, and I am on the bike training two nights a week and I’m doing a 1-2 hour ride outside on the weekends. So now I need to fit in running somewhere in my schedule. I think I might run Monday, Friday and Sunday. And I’ll take a day off whenever I need it.
I’m still looking at HIM (Half IronMan) training plans, I have found a few, but I really need to study them all and find one that I can live with.
On my very high heart rate, I’ve been to the doctors and had a thyroid scan and some blood work and yup my thyroid is over active. So I am going to meet with my doctor sometime next week and talk about treatment.
I’ve been doing some internet research on thyroid treatment and it looks like it wouldn’t affect my training.
So, that’s all for now, if I see ya at the pool I’ll wave.
