August was my last full month of triathlon training. My last triathlon of the season is September 9th, so I can only assume that my training goals will shift somewhat over the off-season. I’m hoping for less swimming and expecting more running, but we’ll see what my coach has in store for me. There is nothing I find harder than dragging myself to the pool on a cold dark morning, and now that team swim has ended (at least for now), finding that motivation is going to be tough.
August was a pretty good month. My one race this month went way better than I planned. I was expecting a bit of a mediocre race, and instead beat all of my goals. Let’s hope that trend continues.
Swim – 5.5 miles
Bike – 208 miles
Run – 40 miles
I didn’t realize how low my run miles were, but I did miss one long run this month due to volunteering. I should have planned better so I could get the run in, but I was just exhausted. A better plan would have been an afternoon nap followed by a run, but it is what it is.
Swim – 38.5 miles
Bike – 1547 miles
Run – 356 miles
