Numbers, numbers, numbers


August 2008 Training totals:

Swim:
10,612 yards
Bike: 230 miles
Run: 100.3 miles

YTD 2008 Training totals:

Swim: 47,841 yards
Bike: 1,059 miles
Run: 577.5 miles

I am pretty happy with the numbers. It is the first time I have ever racked numbers like that did not involve fat grams or calories consumed.

Today I got up at 3:30am to run 5 miles and I haven't stopped running since. It has been a long day. I got home 2 hours ago and now I have to go back out to pre-masters swim class and then after class I have a 30 minute swim lesson because I don't have any other time to have it. I will get home around 9:30pm and then I have to do lesson planning for tomorrow and do it all over again.

I tired.

Honey - there is endurance and then there is ENDURANCE! That is a helluva schedule you've got going for yourself! I'm with Stef - taking good care of yourself is somewhere in there, right? You are seriously hardcore. Yay RBR!

Haha! This made me laugh. Mostly because I am totally with you on the calories and fat grams and what not. Carbs too. Gotta love them carbs.

Nice job for the year!
