|2011 Wilson 100 riders|
On Tuesday I planned to run or swim or something after work. I didn't do either. I guess Tuesday is my official recovery day for the week. Check!
On Wednesday I ran 11 miles at a moderate pace. It's been so hot lately that I reduced my running to prevent a recurrence of the bladder issues I had last year. Gotta stay hydrated!
That ends my training for August. My total numbers for the month were as follows. I swam 10.4 miles in 6 hours and 28 minutes, rode 621 miles in 36 hours and 57 minutes, and ran 54 miles in 7 hours and 20 minutes. That beats my July numbers by 12 hours. They were swim - 11.45 miles in 7:51, bike - 341 miles in 18:59, and run - 83.25 miles in 11:31. July's total was 38 hours and 22 minutes of training. The total for August was 50 hours and 46 minutes. That's an increase of 12 hours and 24 minutes.
On Thursday I swam 1.9 miles in 1 hour and 10 minutes. I could tell that the lake water is getting cooler.
On Friday morning Chip, Richard and I met at the Silver Comet Trail for an 80 mile ride. We picked up a forth rider, Sean. I had a slight altercation with a pine tree but we still finished our ride averaging 19.0 miles per hour.

My totals for the week were pretty good. I swam 1.9 miles, biked 218 miles, and ran 11 miles. I did it all in 13 hours and 38 minutes. I increased my cycling time and reduced the other two disciplines. Hopefully the month of September will be cooler and I can run more.
That's about it.
Thanks for reading.
