Thank Goodness THAT'S Over

Well folks, we've done it. Survived another August. Made it through Hell and come out the other side ready for football.

Not to rub it in, but college football starts tomorrow night with a South Carolina game on TV. I like that.

So what did I do in August?

Swim: 4000 yds, 3 swims
Bike: 250 miles, 8 rides
Run: 33.9 miles, 7 runs
Strength: 7 workouts
Stretching: 8 yoga's

And everything's cool in the mind of a gangsta. 3 swims is kinda pitiful, but I lost until the 11th swimming thanks to the tattoo. 250 miles on the bike is awesome!! I'm really hoping for a sub-3 hour bike split at the half ironman next weekend so I tried to bike it hard this month. The only race was the DNF at BikeFest.

September is going to be great! 10 more days until the Patriot's half ironman and I feel great. Actually I've got the typical Ironman paranoia that you never think you've done enough training to meet the goals. But I'm trying to be confident here. I've also got the 5k in Myrtle Beach coming up. And college football starts. And fall is really on it's way now. You might not believe it with the high 90's temps we've been having this week, but it's getting dark earlier now and I'm getting hopeful to see the end of this heat soon.

Here's to a great September!

Good job getting in the work. Good luck at Patriot's. What overall time goal are you shooting for?

Good luck bud! We'll be racing a 70.3 at the exact same time, except half way across the country from each other!

I'm not looking forward to the shorter days, but I'm definitely looking forward to the cooler temps!
