104km combined total for swimming and running this month, 29 hours spent at sport, no wonder I was tired all the time and had no time for anything else. But it was completely worth it and I wouldn't have it any other way. The sense of achievement is incredible. I've also made friends which make training a million times more enjoyable and add to my motivation. Sometimes I can't believe I gave up swimming for 12 years prior to this year.
Here are my swimming stats for March:
...and for running
From my list of goals for 2016, I have achieved the following but won't cross them all off because many are ongoing:
-return to running after injury
-return to regular Saturday morning parkruns (completed first one in three months)
-improve personal best times for swimming
Here's what else happened for the month:
-participated in another 5 swim club nights (thirteen in a row now)
-continued with 5.30am swimming training for each Friday of the month
continued working towards the million metres award with Masters Australia. I've completed almost 16% of the total distance required so far.
-participated in Masters NSW Blacktown Swimming Carnival (two firsts and a second in age category)
-won open 100m freestyle race at our Club Championships
-completed first ever 100m butterfly at a long course pool (still not confident to race it yet)
-added extra training into my routine with my swimming friends
-first ever run at an average pace of 4 minutes 59 per kilometre (could only keep up the pace for 3km though!)
What have you achieved for March?
