After Leadman race in Bend, Oregon and 7 years of triathlon, I decided to take a break from racing. The last couple years were very tough for me mentally and physically. For the rest of 2012, I worked out minimally and ate maximally. I gained 10+ lbs over the winter.
Once the new year started, I kind of got back into a routine. I slowly increased my running and swimming. The desire to get on the bike was non-existent. My bike is gathering more dust each day with only 2 hours of total saddle time for the year.
April was my biggest month of running ever. I ran 227.5 miles with a peak week of 59. I think the most I ever ran in a month previously was around 180 miles. I also flopped 49000+ yards in the pool.
