August Tally

The Numbers
* Swam 5000 yards, Cycled 25 miles, Ran 83.8 miles
* Did Core work 11 times and Upper Body Strength work 5 times
* Completed two races: one sprint tri, one 10K
* Cancelled registration for one race: oly tri

Thoughts
* Really enjoyed this month. Had a lot of fun.
* Pleased with progress in core strength and running. Also had a good (panic-free) OWS.
* Unhappy about recent knee pain, but I am hopeful that I can work through that soon.

September Plans
* Training remains focussed on Duke City half-marathon in October.
* Looking forward to the Chips-n-Salsa half-marathon next Sunday and Patriot Sprint Tri the weekend following. Guess I should get on my bike again before the tri. ;)
* Hoping for another opportunity to work on OWS.

  4. Nice job! You've got such a great attitude, plunging right ahead with your goals for the 1/2 marathon and your tris. Still thinking healing thoughts for you on the knees.... I know you'll come out strong.

  5. August sounds like your best month this year (minus the knee pain - but I'm betting that will get better soon).

    Great job, and happy to hear your OWS was panic-free :)

  8. Greaat numbers! Funny I was just thinking about my August and overall summer totals as well. I guess it is that time of year!

    You are progressing so well on your 1/2 marathon goals! I can't wait to read about your race next weekend! What a great name "Chips & Salsa"!

    I hope your knee pain is temporary. If you think it is IT band I have some things that I did that really helped me keep any problems at bay.

    I got knocked out of Nike last year(had to walk/run) because of IT band stuff, but I have trained for and completed two marathons since.

    Goodie, goodie. Race reports to come!
    *rubs hands together in glee*


    Keep up the great work!
