I like to perform a tally each month to keep me honest. I have my 2nd ever Oly coming up in a month. I thought it would be fitting to compare my August stats with those from April since both are the month prior to an Oly. Here's how it stacks up.
Swim: August -5400M, April -10,800
No surprise. I have new logistical issues keeping me from getting to the pool as often as I had in the past. However, one thing in my favor is a few open water swims in August vs. none in April.
Bike: August - 254 miles, April - 121 miles
Historically, this has been my weakest link, and I've made an effort to spend more time in the saddle and work on my base. I hope it pays off at Elephant Man. If nothing else, I'm starting to enjoy cycling. :)
Run: August- 43 miles, April - 42.5
Basically a wash. With the half-mary coming next weekend, I wish this month's mileage had been higher. But it is what it is.
Races: August - nada, April - nada
I feel good, and I'm ready for whatever September might have in store. Bring it on!!
