July. It’s the month I’ve been aiming for since my hip injury was diagnosed. And all the recovery time was totally worth it. I’m still far from being back to full form, but I’m getting to race and workout without pain, and it’s been amazing.
Swim – 8 miles
Bike – 163 miles
Run – 27 miles
Lower numbers than June, which is to be expected, with a post-race recovery week in there. Near the end of the month, I also did something that sent my back muscles into spasm and two weeks later, I’m still feeling a bit of tightness in that spot. Because of that, I took a few days off and even still am cutting my swims short. Getting old, man. It’s a beast.
Still, I’m really pleased with the direction I’m going. I do have to start picking up my running if I want to be able to do the Army Ten Miler in October, but I’m not too worried about it. I’ll get there. My only goal is to beat the time cutoffs, and I should be okay there.
Swim – 37.4 miles
Bike – 1137 miles
