X-Training: 14 (Bike - 9, Swim - 5)
Biking Miles: 221.54
Rest Days: 6
Race(s): Lawyers Have Heart 5k (or the 10k that wasn't) - 25:38 - a decent time in the heat, plus a 3rd place finish in the law librarian category!
New gear: Bike shoes and clipless pedals!
Keep up the biking and swimming - I did a good job here. Better with biking than swimming, but I still managed to get to the pool at least once a week
New PDR on the bike - Increased my PDR for 20.5 to 30.5
Make a decision about bike shoes/pedals - Done. I got these at the beginning of the month and am glad I made the switch
Get back over 90 miles running for the month - This did not even come close to happening. In fact, it was my lowest month so far in 2011.
Non-workout goal: Try some new recipes. I'm stuck in a rut, so it's time to add some new things to my regular rotation. Thanks to my new CSA deliveries, I did a decent job with this towards the end of the month.
Ice cream flavor of the month: Ben & Jerry's Clusterfluff (random sidenote, Internet searching reveals that this is being renamed What a Cluster. Apparently the name was a little too risque?)
I made a lot of strides on the bike during June (new shoes, a fall) and significantly upped my mileage. I'm really happy I made the switch to shoes and clipless pedals, even though there was an adjustment period. It didn't take quite as long as I thought to feel comfortable with them and I do think they should make a difference in my next race. My running mileage dropped off due to a lack of weekend long runs, so I didn't even come close to hitting my goal of 90 miles. I'd like to increase this in July so that my body isn't completely shocked when marathon training starts in August. I maintained my swimming, so I feel like I am in good shape for my upcoming tri. I thought I might try to fit in a few more races, but just didn't end up feeling like it. My motivation tapered off towards the end of the month, but I'm hoping I can find it again in July.
Increase my running mileage over June
Take some extra rest days - marathon training is coming and I should take a break now :)
End July motivated and ready to train for Philly
Races: Culpeper Sprint Triathlon (July 31)
Non-workout goal: More new recipes. The first two CSA deliveries have really motivated me to try new things in the kitchen and I want to keep it up once the new, excited feeling has worn off.
