July training


My first reaction was not to post training numbers when I can't even run because of my shoulder. But then I decided that I might as well have the comparison--I can feel good when it goes up again. I spent 10 days of July in Montana with no pool and a bike with an uncomfortable saddle. The last week of the month I was injured--the orthopedist said nothing but walking and the exercise bike. The exercise bike is so different from riding my real bike and so boring that I'm doing 1/2 hour sessions.

Totals:

Swim: 6 sessions, about 6 1/2 hours
Run: 10 sessions, 27 miles, about 6 1/2 hours
Bike: 13 sessions, about 10 1/2 hours

Do you have a bike trainer? That way you can ride your own bike instead of an exercise bike. It's still not the same as being outside, but it does let you make adjustments to your bike, get used to it, work on cadence and long slow rides, or good interval work. A good movie or football game makes the time go faster!

No, I don't have a bike trainer, but couldn't ride one anyway. I'm not supposed to put any pressure on my shoulder (A-C joint separation) for several weeks. Or could one ride on a trainer entirely no-handed? Living in South Carolina I haven't felt the need for a trainer--I rode outdoors at least once or twice a week all winter last winter.
