May 2013 - Training Totals

As predicted, May was a big month.  Huge.  I had a really good race in St George and then I've been getting my butt kicked (in a good way) the entire time since.  This is an all-time monthly high for swimming and cycling.  And the cycling mileage would be even higher if I didn't have 3 super hilly bike rides with lower-than-normal paces.  The run is a tad low, but I'm 99% sure that is because we're trying to keep my heel healed.  I've had some mystery pains in that area lately, but I'm thinking that its just phantom "happy anniversary" pains rather than something real.  I've got a few other aches and pains, but they're all manageable.  My right foot is doing better (80%, maybe more) and my right adductor is still a bit tweaky, but if I tape it up before a ride or run, it doesn't get any worse.  I will take "not worse" for now, knowing that things will heal up during taper.

Goals for June is to finish off my final build strong and to taper well.  Rest and get healed.  Don't be a hero and do anything crazy or unusual.  And to not get hurt.
