Where has the time gone?

I can’t believe that it’s already Friday. And it’s also August. Holy CRAP! 7 months of the year – GONE!

Better make the best of what is left, right?

So I have been SLOWLY catching back up with missed workout. IronTriTim once said, "don’t worry about trying to catch up on the missed workouts" and his logic never made more sense.

This week and next week are monster weeks for me. Both weeks include midweek 30+ mile rides and not one but two long distance runs.

Whew! Still….I can’t help it, I W.A.N.T to get ALL my workouts in. Even if it kills me!

On a side note, we had a nice little meet up with Calyx on her way to an awesome Half Mary run.

It is so nice to meet people and instantly connect.

I think that blogging really brings us all closer together. We instantly feel like we’re talking to family. All the pretenses fade away and we are relaxed. Blogging and Triathlon providing the bridge between strangers.

OK. Enough of the talk on with the numbers!

July totals:

10 Swim – 10:39:31 hours – 18,800 yards (11.75 miles)
16 Bike – 20:53:59 hours – 273.9 miles
13 Run – 08:46:15 hours – 41.0 miles

39 workouts
40:16:46 hours
325.6 miles
23,423 Calories Burned!

Despite my promises, it looks like I still need to work on my run mileage. It’s actually lower than last month’s! But this month does hold a lot of promise (or pain – depends on how you looks at it).

Another good month formulaic, i'm definitely following what I said, with the twins taking up so much time I make the most of any training I can and not worrying about the missed ones.7 months gone 3 months to florida for me.
