August runs

leave a comment »

This month was marred by illness and injuries. The total mileage is 160 miles, a big drop-off from July (244). It started off so nicely with the longest training run ever (17 miles), but then things got pretty tough. That’s life. Got to deal with it.

11 weeks till the race. My current expectation has been significantly lowered due to the nagging left leg pain.

In the sports world, things are exciting again this week. Barcelona return to the field tonight, playing their first La Liga match of the season. Hoping for another good year. Last Grand Slam tennis of the year, the US Open, is also set to start tonight. Go Federer.
