Just the fact that I’m still tracking my workouts 6 months into the year is a small cause for celebration. I thought I would start skipping a few entries and then pitch the whole idea after a few months. Not so. I really enjoy seeing how much I have done.
Now for the downside. I’d like to be seeing more progress. I saw some progress in the first quarter, but I think I’ve stepped back from even those small gains. Illness and a rough travel schedule caused a four week layoff from any meaningful workouts for the last 2 weeks of Q2 and the first 2 weeks of Q3. Consistency was also not a high point for this quarter. Running decreased, but biking came out of the closet and kept the workout time in each month between 7:45 and 9:30.
So here are the totals:
I ran 108.3 miles in 15 hours and 9 minutes for the quarter and 308 miles in 43 hours in the first half.
I biked 172 miles in 10 hours and 21 minutes in this quarter.
I picked my next goal which is to run the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon on Sunday, December 4, 2011. It happens to be the weekend of the WPBT (aka Blogger Weekend) and several of my blogger friends also plan to participate. It should be the capper to another great Vegas weekend. Of course, there is also the 24 Hours of Booty charity bike ride at the end of this month and I’m still hoping that I can gather up enough fitness to do the Take Flight Tryathlon for the third year. I’m really busting my workout volume right now. It’s time to get going or get out of the way.
See you out on the road.
