Hard to believe it’s over….  And well over as this is a bit late…

A good month though.  The best Tour de France I’ve seen in a while… Training volume is up.  Health is good

The numbers:

Swim: 13700 yds

Lots of drills this month.  I’m on lesson 4 of the ”Perpetual Motion Freestyle in 10 Lessons”... I still kinda suck but now with even more ease and balance!

Bike: 644 mi

Quantity and quality here with 2 100+ mile rides and lots of hills to boot.

Run: 121 mi

Even started to integrate a little speedwork in again.

Strength: 6 hrs

I’ve put on some muscle I think…  not too sure I’m crazy about that…

Total: 4218 minutes or 70.3 hours

In non-training news….
