Summer is here!

This is the longest day of the year and the first day of summer. Although you couldn't tell that it was summer since we have 300 days of summer here in SW Florida.

Today I decided to run on the treadmill at the fitness center since it was so humid. I was able to do 5 fives at a 9 minute mile pace. At least I was able to continue running without having to take a walk break due to the heat.

This past weekend I was only able to ride 25 miles. Since I was alone and didn't have anyone to "pull" when I was tired, I quite at 25. Hopefully next Saturday it will be cooler and I will have my riding partner back.

I hope to swim 1,000 yards at lunch today. Then tonight I'll go with Joanne to the fitness center and work on core strenthening. I'm also trying to watch my calorie intake. I hope to drop 20 lbs, before my November 1/2 Ironman.

20 pounds is a good chunk of weight, but from someone who has lost about that much let me tell you that the difference in your performance between the two weights will be huge! 20 pounds is just about what a case of beer weighs! Just think... you won't have to lug that case around with you come November! What race are you signed up for then?
