July marked the first official month of my ironman training and now it is over and it's time to look back at the numbers.
Monthy stats Time in mins miles
Swimming 406 13
Biking 1131 315
Running 798 78
Totals Time in hours Miles
Since I haven't publishing this yet This has been my biggest month by far this year.
400 miles and almost 39 hours - I was wondering why I was so tired this month. And when you factor in the heat and humidity I feel better knowing there is a reason for it.
For comparison - my biggest month previously was May at 32.5 hours and June with 356 miles. I have 3 more miles of swimming and 35 more miles on the bike than past highs. May was my longest month on the run with 85 and still is.
The week of July 12th was my biggest week to date with 11 hours and 120 miles.
I just got a sneak peak at my August and other than the first week which is a recovery week, it's going to eclipse July.
I definitely need to take this recovery week seriously and not to a lot of volume or intensity so I can be ready for the rest of the month. Luckily I have a Half Ironman on September 11 so I will get a chance to back off and recovery again for the 1 week of taper and hopefully coach will be nice and give me a recovery week after.
