July Recap

I can't believe it is this time of the month again! July has been a great training month with highs and lows. I feel like I am getting faster and stronger so I hope that trend continues!

Highs - first century under my belt
Lows - where did my afternoon energy go?

This is by far my highest volume month yet and I think it is only growing from here. Thankfully, my plan has you slowly build into the hours. I think parenthood is a good analogy for the "phase in" approach. Babies are born small and immobile and as they grow so does your parenting. By the time that they are doing back flips off the coffee table, you are ready for it (well, sort of!).

July's totals:
Bike: 25h 24m - 444 Mi
Run: 18h 50m - 129 Mi
Swim: 13h 30m - 32,300 Yd

Total Time - 57h 43m

Happy August (eek)!
