You know your training is ramping up when ... & June Recap

How do you know when your training volume is ramping up?

- At the end of the week you have used nearly all of your training clothes

- Your audio book only lasts through the weekend

- Your family knows not to schedule anything prior to lunch

- You can't keep enough nutrition in the house (EFS, Ultragen, etc)

- You eat a lot. Ok, all the time.

- A pedicure lasts a week - maybe

- You use the word "only" in front of anything shorter than a 4 hour ride or 2 hour run.

- You stop doing non-essential things, which is why I am way behind blogging, housekeeping and the like (family, work, training, sleeping, eating are essential)

- You are too tired to finish this list

June in Numbers
Swim: 31,450 yards in 12:35
Bike: 505.35 miles in 28:51
Run: 131.16 miles in 19:21
Other: 1:40
Total Time: 62:27

Milestones

I had the biggest bike volume training week ever in June - back to back bike days sure rack up the miles!

I also killed my new iPod, yes, you read that right, the brand new one. I bought this case for my new, new iPod to ensure that I will not have to replace the new, new iPod again due to my sweat (ewwww!). For the record, a ziploc bag will not protect your iPod ...

Where has the month of July already gone???

Happy Training!

Wow! Great month!!!

I know my training volume is ramping up when I have a "recovery" week and still have 11 hours of training to do.

I hope the new iPod case works!

I feel your pain, nice work.

There is a blogger party on the weekend of feb 5th and 6th at Tough Mudder in Austin, I am inviting you and your husband to come out and have a little fun at this race, something to think about.

Pedicure tip - check out getting "gel toes" - it's similar to nail polish but they put you under the light after they paint it on. Lasts like 6 weeks in between pedis. I absolutely love it. No chipping... they honestly look near perfect after six weeks. Check it out!
