Training Journal 3/18-3/24

Monday, March 18- Sunday, March 24, 2013: This week I really committed to doing some quality workouts. I got my blood tests back that would hopefully pinpoint what's been going on with my energy and breathing.  It seemed to indicate that I am low in iron and my immune system is not up to par.  Really I need to have the results analyzed by a real doctor, not Doctor Candice.  So the mystery continues.  I was able to get a great track workout in plus a tough 50k training run.  On the cross training side, I did 3 biking sessions at altitude thanks to our awesome new Hypoxico altitude mask/machine.  I'm hoping to be consistent enough for these workouts to improve my fitness.
