---------------

Well, first month in the books and think it has been a good one. Lots of strength training and cycling. The first to build a solid foundation and the second to build endurance w/o the pounding of miles running.

Since August is recess month the challenge will be to get workouts in with a haphazard travel schedule. The opportunity, though, is that I have acces to a pool and my bike during the week.

Will look in to joining a small gym outside of the neighborhood for the month of August to keep the momentum there ...at least until I can my garage cleaned out enough to set up a home gym!

Made it home. Very glad that the hacking brats surrounding us were on the return trip.  I'd have been freaked out if anyone had coughed on me before the race!

100% peach squares this month! So happy. :)
Also, yesterday I got a new Fitbit badge for 15,000 steps, and today I swam 1500 yards, which is my longest workout so far. Perhaps I'll find $1,500 later today? That can't be too much to ask, right?

Weekend should be a blast, excited about a number of things. 65-70 mile ride tomorrow, winds are looking calm so that is a relief. Then I am going to dinner and a paint party with my college girlfriends. I can't say I've been the best friend to much of anyone in the past few years, and even in the past few months where I've been feeling like I need my friends, my introvert side has really dominated. Instead of calling one of them up to hang out I retreat to my couch, to training, to sleeping. It's normal behavior for me but then I wonder why no one wants to hang out and it's because I rarely make an effort. So I'm really happy they thought of me and extended the invitation. I am not even excited about the canvas design (and I won't be drinking because of my run Sunday morning) but I just want to hang with my friends. 
Then Sunday I am doing a 5K for my company as part of our local corporate challenge. They must be really hard up for runners again because they know my time from[...]

Went with Brant and his wife and his Aunt and Uncle and Chris to attend a free taping in Millenium Park of WAIT WAIT DON'T TELL ME. Brant and Chris are NPR geeks.
Didn't take many photos, but Brant took this one, and my hair looks fried. Frightening. I need a haircut.


City at Night!
 
Another exhausting and demoralizing day at work.  Nixed the bike ride in favor of some downtime and TV and going to bed early for tomorrow's EARLY & LONG ride. 
 
Friday -- Bike PM
Saturday -- LONG BIKE 5+ hours up in CL. 
Sunday -- LONG WALK 10 miles (hopefully my damn shoes show up!)
