I was busy in June. I added cycling back into the mix once I got my bike together after the upgrade to Dura-Ace.
I ran 87 miles in June, which is a bit lower than normal months. I rode 384 miles on the bike. Clearly cycling took away from running, but I mixed in some nice two-a-days of running and riding.
I’m focused on getting to 100+ miles a week between running and riding. I like to be in around 20+ miles running and 80-100 miles riding. This mix has been working well for me and I feel some relief on my legs with a bit less pavement pounding.
I’ve also seen my step count go up with all this activity and I’m hovering near 180,000 to 200,000 steps a week. I’ve stopped tracking all my food and ironically my weight is dropping again. Clearly focusing on two sports and eating right is helping shed those pounds. If I could curb my snacking I’d be golden…working on that.
I’m very happy with June and looking forward to a strong July. I might even work in swimming…oh boy. I’m still on track for 1,500 miles running and 1,500 miles riding. I’m a bit behind on riding, but calling it a wash as my miles are going up quickly.
Decide to dominate!
