I sold the snowboard today. No more of that foolish sport for me. Now I just need to find some skis....assuming the doctor says I can ski. We have a whole bunch of skiing planned, probably at least one day for 3/4 of the weekends from now until early March. My arm hasn't been improving much lately, making me think it's something more serious. It's the extremes that hurt- either a full extension or curl. Gripping and twisting, especially a strong handshake, really hurts. I was able to get in the pool last week, although only for 2000 and then 800 yards. I see the doc tomorrow afternoon...
Now that the new year has come, I can see my totals for 2009:
Swim 145 hours, 464,400 yards
Bike 136 hours, 2,485 miles
Run 143 hours, 1,042 miles
Other (mostly lifting) 14 hours
So that's a total of 438 hours. That's pretty low compared to many triathletes, but I'd suggest the main difference between 438 and the other totals I've seen is junk or recovery miles. I didn't race longer than an Oly, and trained accordingly. Most of the hours, especially once spring rolled around, were high quality. 2010 will likely be more of the same. Why mess with something that works? Sure, I'll make some improvements, but that's just tweaking.
Happy New Year to everyone! May your plans and dreams for 2010 come true...as long as you don't plan on finishing in front of me. ;-)
