I have decided not to do another HIM this year. My focus is now the Chicago Marathon. I have been trying to crack that 6 hour mark but have not been able to in 3 tries. This year since I am training with a group, I feel I have a good chance to achieve that.

Tonight I went for my first run since Steelhead. The 3 miles were not bad at all. I plan to take it easy through Sunday then game on for part 2 of the season.

Waddling on a summer evening............

July Numbers:
Bike: 16h 51m - 246.8 Mi
Run: 16h 22m - 74.91 Mi
Swim: 9h 10m - 15450 M

CONGRATULATIONS on deciding on Chicago! One of my favorite marathons (with the exception of last year, but that is another story...)

Glad your run went well. It is nice to get back at it and feel good.

Good choice! I think if you keep up the cross training on the bike you will meet your goal. I know you also biked last year but not as much. I have found that the cycling has done wonders for my running.

Making the decision is half the battle for me. Congrats on your decision!!

Sounds like a solid plan. Biking as cross training will help your tri-shape-ness too.

So, let's pray for good weather this year, eh??????

So.. on to Chicago! It will have to be a whole lot better than what we all experienced last year.
Happy running... successful training.
