Below is a training data, with racing data included, summary for 2009, with 2008 in parenthesis.
It is pretty obvious how the stress fracture influenced my run time, otherwise things look really good. Too bad I could not really race in 2009.
Swim Yardage = 325,027 yds (215,425 yds)
Swim Time = 120 hrs (83 hrs)
Run Time = 25 hrs (102 hrs)
Bike Time = 109 hrs (103 hrs)
PT and Strength Time Estimate = 21hrs
I was surprised the bike time was as close in 2009 as 2008, much more of the time in 2008 was from racing than in 2009, of course.
The swim yardage increase is enormous. I guess that is what happens when you start going to Masters 3 days a week.
My leg is still healing. A CT scan a few weeks ago showed slower than expected healing. A small fracture can still be seen in the bone in the x-ray. My doctor talked to two surgeons, both who have seen this type of fracture before. They recommended that if it is not healed in a year, from the time I stopped running, which would be the first week in May 2010, I should consider surgery. I don't like that idea at all.
My doctor and I decided, along with one of the surgeons, that I should start some impact (light) work. So I did 10 minutes on the elliptical last week. No pain in the bone area.
I have already registered for 8 races in 2010. I am going to race, even if I have to walk the run for each race. Hopefully, it will not come to that.
My next post will be my goals for 2010 and I will start posting my schedule.
