May turned out to be a pretty steady and consistent month for me training wise. I got some good runs in and ran my longest run (16km) for the first time in about 6 months. Ryan started a new job recently and they participate in the Kananaskis 100 mile relay. They needed someone extra and so I am in :) My leg is 16.5km on an uphill course. I am excited/nervous to do my first race in nearly two years. I know I can do the distance, I am more concerned about my diabetes management. We went camping for May long weekend and I squeaked a run in then which was lovely and something I plan to do during camping trips this summer. I am working on it and will save my findings/training in that regard for another post.
Now for the numbers:
Hours of training = 39.8 hours
Spin x 19 = 232 km's
Run x 13 = 145.6 km's
Swim x 3 = 8,000m
Weights/tabata/core= 9 hours 45 minutes
Rest days =5
Very happy with my running improvements and am loving being outside. Also super duper exciting news! I will be spending more time riding outside now...on my new bike :) She does not have a name yet but I shall keep you posted. Looking forward to registering for some Tris!
