The best thing about July was my swimming. This was my highest swim month to date, so woooo for that. I really wanted to hit 200 miles on the bike and was on track, but I fell apart at the end of the month. I'm still feeling a little off three days into August, but at this point, I'm going to try to power through whatever this crap is.
Running ... ugh. I hate the hot days of summer. I may have "embrace the heat" as a goal next year like "embrace the hill" was last year. *gack*
The worst part of this month is the crushing weight of looming failure. I'm nowhere close to being on track with the goals I had set for myself this year. The one, main, overarching goal - embrace my inner awesome - feels so far away, I feel so far from awesome that it's not even funny. Nothing to be done but to persevere and I know that, but it's always so much harder in practice.
