3 days in a row with a decent swim and over 10k of running. 13k today to be exact and a 2.5k swim. i'm starting to get a handle on what my strength and endurance levels are like. i've come to accept that i am literally starting over here with a clean slate. anything i did in 2008 is ancient history. a new year with new challenges. marathon running and swimming won't be the same, but it will be a great challenge to see how good i can get in this post-op era.
i've got 3 marathons to run in 3 different states/provinces an 8 day period in april, so i've definitely got something to train for. something that will get me to a level 5 with the infamous marathonmaniacs.com critera, something that i use as a guide to plan my next mega-endurance challenges! three gender categories, not to mention: male in Boston, female in Waterloo, and 'unclassified' in Charlottesville.
hoping to make this 10k or more per day, a habit. and hoping to get over to the pool 7 days a week starting on sunday.. let's see if i can get a swimming streak going, as well as a streak of 10k running per day or more!
