I feel like a broken record saying this…but summer is flying! How can it already be August?!?!?
Swimming: 8.800 meters total. Swims are a mix of timed 200′s 400′s and 800′s, different drills and free swims. They always include a warm-up and/or a cool-down. Definitely did not swim enough this month, however the quality of my swim is high. I have consistently improved over the last few months and more so since this time last year. Grade B+
Biking: 91.7 miles. I killed it this month on the bike- conquered my fear of riding with a group and did a crazy amount of miles in comparison to previous months. The work I am putting in, is evident in my racing…I am getting so much more confident, and thereby better! Grade A+
Running: 15 miles and 13.9 miles walking. This is still WAY less than I want to be doing but I did try to take it easy with mile run this month with half-marathon training starting in August. Looking forward to hitting more pavement as I continue to feel much better post-injury. Grade B-
Strength: 2 measly hours total…all month. Confession: I don’t love lifting. UGH! Grade D
- Stretch More- This is now simply a part of my life. Every day. Grade A+
- Up the Mileage- not with running, but yes with walking. Grade C
- Two-A-Days- Averaging about two a week. Thats pretty solid. Grade A-
- Eat Consistently- Yeah, consistenly bad! Too many happy hours and bbq’s! Grade C-
- No Soda- Not a one! Grade A+
- No Scale- Maybe a handful of times, but like I said last month…since I know I am gained I tend to stay off it Grade B
Overall Grade B+; I am happy with this month- solid workouts, three races and only seven rest days.
