Jul Tally and a couple photos

Numbers
  • Ran 55.7 miles
  • Gym 4 times
  • 2 Races (5K, Splash&Dash)
  • Insigificant amount of swimming, cycling.
  • I managed to lose 1.5 lbs after getting serious about watching what I eat - and didn't gain it back while on vacation!
Thoughts
  • One of my highest running volume months, coutesy of smashed finger (couldn't cycle, lift weights, or swim for several weeks).
Plans for August
  • Keep progressing with half-marathon training
  • Maintain focus on portion control
  • Get butt in gear for triathlon training - have a race in 5 weeks or so - yikes!

A Few Photos from Vacation




This last one is related to "Caribana" which drew huge crowds on Saturday

  17. Awesome job, especially on NOT gaining weight while on vacation. Something that is super duper hard to do.

    Hope the finger is healing so you can get back to cycling and swimming.

    Pretty pictures!
