Ready to Rock 'n Roll

The last two weeks of training have been what are known as "orientation" weeks. It really is designed to get you back in the swing of "two a day workouts" and a little more structure. Over the last few months I have continued training but it was heavily weighted to running, a smattering of swimming and the cycling was really hit and miss. During this orientation cycle I have really felt good. My swimming has shown a marked improvement and I'm not quite sure why. During the months when the pool was closed I did start doing 40 - 60 chin ups every second day and I'm wondering if that might have helped. Whatever it is, it sure has been nice to see my times dropping in the pool.
Yesterday I went for my annual physical and apparently there is nothing stopping me from training at a high level again this year.
So far this week I have logged just over 6 hours of training, 2 swims, 2 bikes and 4 runs.
Have a great day!
