With July rolling along, the heat and humidity are in full force here in Ohio. I’m sure it’s probably the same where you live too? Despite the temps we were able to fit in a camping trip which was quite fun – in the shade! And our camper has air conditioning so no big deal. With the addition of a lot of little bike rides around the campground I ended up with 55 miles of bike riding and 39 miles of running.
Mon – 3.5 easy miles. And sweaty miles. Oh so humid again 🙂 No pics today, but I’ll give you one from Sunday at the bike park. My son got a new BMX bike which was a lot of fun to jump into the pit!
Tues – 9 mile tempo run. This was as good as it was going to get in the summer heat. A few rest breaks were taken! These hot runs are character builders!
Ladies Ride Night! It was super hot, but it felt wonderful on our ride.
Weds – Rest day! My parents were camping at a local campground so we joined them for a few days. It was a nice weekday getaway!
My Dad just bought a scooter since he can’t manage a bike anymore. It’s a game changer! That thing is fast – it goes 20 mph! Luckily my Dad doesn’t go more than maybe 9 mph. Yes, this is the same Dad who was laying in a hospital bed a couple of months ago. Crazy, right?
We saw a beautiful sunset on the beach that night.
Thurs – 8 miles. A run around the campground. We also did some bit of biking and hiking. We saw a cool little Praying Mantis on our nature hike. We also played euchre! I haven’t done that in a long time. My kids and mom were beginners and we played pretty good.
Fri – I was going to go on a short run, but it quickly turned into a walk when I saw my parents on the trail. I joined them for a 2.5 mile walk. My Dad was zooming around so I just got to enjoy talking to my Mom.
By Friday afternoon we were back home. My training plan said “Fun Workout”, so I chose inline skating. My son and I skated while my daughter rode her skateboard. After that, we had ice cream. A perfect ending to the night.
Sat – 16 miles, long run! The clouds were rolling through and luckily I got some rain on my run! Yes, it was a good thing to be rained on. I was very happy the sun didn’t make an appearance either. We’ve got a Disney trip planned for Thanksgiving week so I spent this entire run listening to Disney travel podcasts. The perfect way to multitask 🙂
This year our zoo turned on the seasonal Christmas lights (since apparently they are still hung from last Christmas) and they had a Christmas in July event. It was a fun night, but super crowded and hot! I’m glad Christmas is actually cold around here.
Sun – 26 miles biking. I fueled up with some donuts then went out for a long ride. Sweaty, but a good ride. 16.7 mph riding on my own. Yay! Saw some beautiful flowers along the way.
