After finally recovering from an injury which prevented me from doing much serious training for many years, 2018 was finally a year when I was able to start rebuilding my fitness. The injury seemed to be similar to a sciatic nerve injury. It had been debilitating to the point where I was unable to stand or get out of bed for up to a week in excruciating pain. To heal myself form that sciatic issue, I used a combination of chiropractic intervention and craniosacral in order to get my body to a status where I was able to do yoga and to help myself. I practiced about 300-500 hours per year of a yoga therapy which I developed for myself. In 2017, I started ramping up my triathlon training. 2018 was finally a year when I was able to start rebuilding my fitness to Ironman levels which I had about ten years ago.
I successfully completed 3 months of base training at an equivalent of 368 hours/year. Then, I successfully completed 3 months of base training at an equiavalent of 403 hours/year. This is a good sign that I am well on my road to recovery and well into rebuilding my fitness towards Ironman levels which I had about ten years ago.
I did well with my primary goal. I completed 14 hours/week from swim, bike, run & yoga thoughout the year, including 18/hours week during the seven months, Apr-Oct. I feel great about my third goal of my health being vibrant and expanding.
I did very well on 8 of my 9 objectives.
