CLSB July Challenge...revised : Post your July Totals

I think since most of us have gotten tired of updating a thread for results we could try something new. How about at the end of each month we just use a thread to show off what we did for the month. Some of us our doing tri's so we could post up those totals also. I'll start for July.

Bike: 17h 22m - 319.46 Mi
Run: 10h 04m 34s - 64.47 Mi
Swim: 8h 14m - 19400 M

I would so be about this, if I actually tracked my miles.

I did just get the Garmin Edge yesterday, and I am 90% sure I am buying a Garmin 110 this weekend.
So then I would only need to track my swiming.

Your Garmin 110 should track your swimming also. It did for me in the HIM.

Hell I can't keep track of all this. I have slowed down quite a bit though on mileage, especially running.

It must be. I used the one from my 705, which works for the 110 also. Seemed to work fine.

aren't all HR straps waterproof? I'd imagine it has to be at the minimum sweat proof and when I wear mine on the treadmill, I look like I done did just got out of the fucking shower.

Does any store actually have them, or do I need to buy it online? (the 110)

They just got released, and they are backordered again. I can get you one in a week or two I think.

X just got a team color 500 off eBay that looks hideous on his bikes, and when he showed me all the bells and whistles, and when we realized I could take it to Ohio to use on my bike there too, (sans cadence sensor, which doesn't matter because it's a single speed bike) we decided to get a plain one for him, and I'd take the blue and orange.

I just looked this up and Garmin says that the "soft strap" transmitter can be worn in the water, but the "hard strap" cannot. I don't know what that means. They also say that it wont collect HR data while in water? I dunno.

My Polar HRM is waterproof and can be used for swimming, the transmitter is a solid molded piece of plastic making it waterproof.

Nice!!

Less volume for me this month, but more intensity and races. The results have been good for me though. I've had some bad races, but the top 10 tri in Naperville made up for it all!

August's totals:
Bike: 13h 36m 42s - 174.67 Mi
Run: 7h 56m 10s - 50.79 Mi
Swim: 4h 40m 55s - 9250 M
Strength: 5h 30m

You doubled your run total from last month. Nice work!

X, I read somewhere that the average Ironman competitor runs 45 miles per week. You're a little short. Nice job though anyways. You got this in the bag if you don't hose up your nutrition. I had 4 friends do Louisville IM this last weekend. 90 degree heat. One did it in just over 13 hours, and this was her second one. Two others did it in just over 16 hours and it was their first one. She said she almost walked the entire marathon except for the first 3 miles. Makes Racine seem like a breeze.

I think he'd have to quit his job to get any more training in.
I'm supportive, but I'm not *that* supportive.

On a side note, I've finally started feeling "addicted" to riding. Like, I want to go out and pedal all the time now. I wish I didn't work at home, because pedaling to work would be awesome.

For the record, I took the first week of August off, as recovery from Racine.
If I ran another week I would be at about 145ish.
Not trying to make any excuses.
My wife is right, I am 100% of what I can do with out quitting my job.

As far and the Nutrition...
I am freaking out about finding something that is going to work.
As I feel that is my missing link.

Oh, I suppose I could post my totals for August.
Run: 0 (Feh!)
Bike: 150 miles
Swim: 50 yards

The pool by our house is still closed due to flood damage, so I've been going to the lake with X, and figuring out how to swim in open water. Turns out I kind of panic. The first time I couldn't make myself go past the sand bar where it's waist deep, so when I'd try swimming, I'd hit the bottom. I was also totally grossed out about all the raw sewage that had been dumped in the lake with the flood, and was worried about the totally drunk couple near our stuff on the beach. Second time, since I hadn't died from E.Coli, I got to chest deep, but it was windy with big swells and whitecaps, so I tried teaching myself how to bodysurf instead while X swam his mile.

The panicking in open water doesn't make any sense to me. I snorkeled in Costa Rica 7 years ago in rough water with Jelly Fish and Stingrays around me and was pretty much fine.

hopefully you get your house fixed up soon from the flood damage!

here are my totals for August:

Bike: 249.26mi
Run: 24mi
Swim:1mile- probably drank a gallon of water in that time...

I can't believe I ran 24 miles, that's definately a record for me.

Year to date:
bike totals: 1178.06 miles
total training hours: 93hrs 15min - kinda weak, many racers train 300+ hours per year.

Our house was mostly fine, just some water in the basement and some leaks in the roof.

The Y near our house on the other hand, was not so lucky. The lower floor where the pool, locker rooms, 2 gyms and smaller workout rooms are, was under 3 feet of water.
