August #s were a little bit better from July except my running. I am slowly building back my mileage due to ITBS in both knees. Icing, stretching, rolling, E-stim and paying close attention to my running form has allowed me to get in some decent runs the past week. I was able to run 12 miles last weekend but I kept it at a slow pace and made sure my foot strike and alignment was right on. If I start getting lazy I can feel it in my knees and I usually pay the price for being lazy.
Swim: 18,146 yards
Bike: 417.83 miles
Run: 24.31 miles
I am officially signed up for Longhorn 70.3 on October 17th. After getting that 12 mile run under my belt I feel confident my recovery is headed in the right direction and I’ll be ready in time for Longhorn.
