Big Weeks of Training

After having a bit of a recovery week I have the energy again to post up the two weeks that tired me out. I spent the first weeks of January getting back into things and then the last two weeks were some of the biggest hours and mileage in the pool in my career. I hadn't been running due to a nagging calf injury so I was only doing walk runs and smaller aerobic runs or else my hours would have been more which is hard to imagine. I am glad they weren't. I mainly focused on building aerobic riding and swim mileage and strength in the gym. The week of January 21-27 was a reasonable 26hrs of training with 31,000m of swimming. That week was followed by 30hrs of training with 45,000m of swimming a record for me.

I have since recovered I think? And I am starting to run more and will build up the hours and mileage of everything again over the next three weeks.
