Maintaining fitness for the fall

It’s been about a month since the Ann Arbor Tri, and I’ve had my time off. It’s time to get back into the routine of exercising – even if it’s not as intense as triathlon training. Unless I decide to do another one this summer… I am as yet undecided.

I’ve been on an every-other-day sort of schedule for the last week – completely by chance – which is fine by me. Monday, I went to the pool and swam. It all came back like I had never had a break. Last night I ran. It felt really good for the first two miles, then my hip flexor suddenly tightened up. Fortunately, it was fine after I stopped to stretch for a minute.

I’m thinking ahead to the Grand Rapids Mud Run at the end of August, the Dunes Duathlon in September, maybe the Reeds Lake Tri and then the Iceman Cometh in November. I want to maintain my fitness this summer, so I don’t have to start all over again for fun races in the fall.
