Summer time of S/B/R/S – Swim/Bike/Run/Strength and what a
fun summer it’s been! Last weekend capped it off with a second
Pikes Peak Double – truly a life defining experience.

Pikes Peak Ascent  - finish cries out for a handstand!

Pikes Peak Ascent – finish cries out for a handstand!

Along the way I’ve been
blessed to snag some bling at our State Games (swim and run), gain
a new 15 year PR in a 5k (21:49) and find that balance among
swimming, biking, running and strength that propels the run
side. There are times in a year where those four legs of a
fitness table are used to propel another side; such as a USMS one hour
postal swim in January or CrossFit Open Games in March to April
Here’s the workout numbers since June 24. Weekly run average of 35
miles per week is something my prior run only focus would have been
proud to attain. Not going carry that the whole year, but
it’s good to know, when a ramp is needed, it’s there. And of
those 280 miles, over half were at a high intensity level – so not
a slog easy run.
