August 2013 Training Wrap Up

How the heck can it possibly be September already?  This summer seemed to fly by.  We are in the middle of a heat wave and it is wonderful.  It was 32C yesterday during my bike ride.  I will take that!  Fall is right around the corner however.  It is dark by 9:00pm and some of the leaves are starting to change.  Time really does fly.  August was a pretty solid month training wise.  I participated in my second sprint tri of the summer and had a blast.  I have been experiencing some pain and tightness in my back and right leg/knee.  My chiropractor has performed some ART and this has helped. Diabetes wise things have been going pretty well. I have definitely had some bad crashes which I need to figure out and work on avoiding. 
Now for the numbers:
Hours of training = 39.7 hours
Bike (including Spin) x 7 = 225.6 km's
Run x 15 = 150.8 km's
Swim x 6 = 13,350m
Weights/tabata/core= 6 hours 55 minutes
Rest days =7

September is going to be a good month. Ryan and I are heading to California for a week and then at the end of the month I am running the 22km Melissa's race in Banff.  Lots to look forward to!  I also will be posting a lot more here.  I have come to realize that my blog is something for me and each post does not have to have a ton of meaning. I love to write and need to do just that :) 


  1. I'm so jealous of your running mileage! I don't think I've ever run 150k in one month. Ever. The rest is pretty impressive too. I need to start logging my swims and my bike rides. I have no idea how far I go in a month but it would be nice to track.

    You've inspired me! Again ;)

    1. Thanks Celine! Trust me, I am very jealous of the mileage you put in the pool and it inspires me :) I find logging the workouts helps to keep me honest and gives me motivation!
