One should never start each and every "Month in Review" post with the sentence: "Can you believe it's already May, June, July, August, SEPTEMBER"! But seriously, where is this year going??? Quite honestly, whenever I started working in finance and the month started to get structured in preparing for close, doing close, cleaning up after close and get everything else done.... Right around in there, I started noticing, how fast the months are flying by. So here we are: It's September. And while fall official starts sometime later this month, in South Carolina, we should have another solid two month of summery temperatures hopefully without the debiliating heat... I am counting on you SC weather! I feel so sorry for my family back in Germany for a pretty crappy summer this year and really have to hold back with the gloating... On the other hand, they feel sorry for me and the squishy bread I get to buy and the missing bike trail network. You win some and you loose some... And I am completely getting off track, because I am supposed to review the training for August.
So here goes nothing:
My cycling mileage for August is just a mere shadow of July's pedal fest, but I traded the missing cycling off with some intense swimming this month. The running is just a tad less than in July, but seriously, what are three miles in the grand scheme of things. And before anybody calls PETA about my dog not being walked enough: 1. I am not the only person in the household walking the dog and 2. she has been doing so good lately to not run off in the huge back yard, that a lot of the walks turned into playing fetch... good for her exercise, not so good for my exercise... oh well.
