As you can tell, I've had some free time. I calculated how I've been doing, based on time and distance for each activity over the last 21 weeks, which is when I started "getting back into it." Actually, I'm kind of disappointed. I feel like I've been working so hard, and I don't have very much to show for it. Maybe I should log this in terms of %body fat lost (4%) or bpm at rest. Both of those make me feel better. But, it's good to evaluate your training log from time to time. Otherwise, what good is a training log? Overall, I found total weekly time helpful. It shows I'm putting in a generally consistent effort with regular R&R weeks, where I take a dip in training to heal. I think I'd rather it look like the plateau between weeks 13 to 15, rather than the plunge at week 21 (oops). My average distance/time per sport helps a lot too. It looks like the proportions are correct, at least, for triathlon. Biking is the most, then running, then swimming. So that's good. However, I need A LOT more swimming. Part of the reason I've been so bad is belonging to a pool with poor/inconvenient lap swimming times. I'm looking to fix that...stat.
