July 2012


Tired legs

The slight knee pain that started in June effectively disappeared in July. I took it easy by only running twice per week, but I made my runs really count. With the Howl at the Moon 8-hour ultra coming up in August I did a lot of long runs. The first week of July I ran a total of 8 hours in 100˚F+ temperatures, and I didn't back off from there.

Running 2012 7



I didn't ride that frequently, but I had some good quality training and racing. I did several practice crits and time trials in 95˚F-105˚F temps. I had a strong race at the New Town Triathlon. I finished 2nd in the Great Egyptian Omnium TT and 1st in the masters 30+ 4/5 crit. This may be the first month ever I've ridden my TT bike more frequently than my road bike.

Cycling 2012 7


Despite a race with a decent swim performance, swimming is kind of in maintenance mode right now. I just don't have the time to devote to really improve.

I don't know why, but I enjoy seeing your monthly stats. Don't care about swimming and cycling...but your run stats are fun to track from month to month.

Good luck at HOWL! Same to Melissa.
