I’m having trouble accepting that it’s July. It just doesn’t seem possible.
Fitness-wise, May and June look a lot alike. The weather didn’t really cooperate for my long rides on the weekend, but I started commuting to work more by bike. I definitely need to get some longer outings in this month. (And with JDRF’s Burlington Ride to Cure Diabetes just around the corner, I’m going to get my wish. You can help make it a success with a donation to help fight diabetes.)
I also didn’t do quite as much running as I had expected. The brutal 70.3 on the 7th left me feeling pretty flat for a couple of weeks afterward. I definitely need to start adding some length to my long runs so that I’m ready for the marathon at the end of the Ironman. (That’s just 10 weeks away!)
Without further ado, here are the totals:
June — 43 workouts
- Swim: 12 times, 9:39 — 28,500 yards (16.2 miles, or 26,000 meters)
- Bike: 15 times, 24:03, 387 miles (623 km)
- Run: 12 times, 11:09, 78.7 miles (126.7 km)
- Kayak: Once, for just over an hour
- Strength: 3 times
While we’re counting stuff, lots talk about license plates. Every month I play my own version of the license plate game. I keep track of all the different states and provinces whose plates I see. Last year, because of my RAGBRAI road trip, I think I got all of the U.S. states. June brought a pretty good haul, too. (Well, for the U.S., at least.) It’s probably easiest to list the states I didn’t get, since I saw 40 states plus the District of Columbia.
- States missing: Oregon, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, West Virginia.
- Provinces I saw: Ontario, Québec, Alberta, Nouveau Brunswick
