April Recap

April started out with a lot of promise.  March was a great month.  We worked hard all month and had great results.  April was going to be bigger and better.

Then T fell off her bike.

It's funny how your priorities shift after something like that happens.  My only concern when she was hurt was to get her better.  I didn't care about anything else, including our races.  If our season got derailed, so be it.

But we bounced back strong after some long off days to nurse her back to health.  It wasn't a great month in terms of totals, but the fact we were able to rebound strong is a good sign.  

Let's go to the board, shall we?


Swim - 4050 meters, or 2.52 miles
Bike - 40.6 miles
Run - 27.68 miles
Strength training - 2 hours 9 minutes
Yoga - 7 minutes

It's kind of funny.  Like I said, the numbers aren't great.  But I feel very very good about them.  Unless May involves some sort of derailment like we had in April, it should feature our biggest numbers yet.


  1. I was talking to a fellow runner yesterday. Perhaps you know this, but we have several world class Russian marathoners living here that we know very well. One of the woman was on a 25 K training run over the weekend and tripped on a curb and got beat up pretty bad, and she wasn't even on a bike. If you are an athlete, injuries, like taxes, are gonna happen :-(

    I'm glad T is recovering well!

  2. Dr J,

    I think it's the classic "it's not how you fall, but how you get back up." When we're down, the question becomes, how can we respond?
