Training is been going much better this year. Last year I felt like I would have 1 good workout and several bad workouts. This year it is the opposite. My body needs a low-key workout or two after every 3-4 solid workouts. It doesn't matter how hard you train if you don't allow your body to recover.
My swimming endurance is improving. I am maintaining 5x400s at the same speed with short rest. My power numbers on the bike are up 10-15% from last year. I am running well at almost 40 miles a week. I have a couple of races coming up in the next two weeks. It should be an interesting season.
