A Week of Training
The week started with some swimming on monday and a cortisone shot in my left heel. Tuesday and wednesday were limited to swimming only. Thursday and friday were 3 1/2 mile run days and some more swimming. Yesterday, I spent four hours on my feet preparing my house to be fumigated. My foot/heel were starting to hurt again, and I was a little worried. Today, was a 3 hour, 50 mile bike ride with climbing, hard intervals, and just a very solid ride. It felt great! I'm thinking of focusing this coming week on swimming and biking and giving my foot a little more rest and time for the cortisone to do it's job. I'll be in San Diego on thursday, so I'm hoping that I'll have a chance to run some down there. It continues to be remarkable how I can bounce back quickly based on my ironman fitness. Overall, an encouraging week, but also a week that reminds me to show some caution.
