Mileage is definitely down from year. This is partly due to fewer commutes but also to adding a race, Apostile Islands, this year. It is weird that racing reduces mileage but it always works out that way.

Heart rate is down so maybe I need to kick it up a notch. Or maybe the number is just bogus. The battery in the HRM was fading throughout the month and actually died during the last week.

I have another race this month. I'm taking a chance on Chicago. I hope the tar snakes don't bite.

A combination of things really. First of all, historically, I OWN June. The days are finally long enough so I can put in skate sessions before and after work if I choose, or at least one of the sessions if rain messes me up. And work slows down so i can work minimum hours. By July and August it's just too hot. So it's June or BUST. My last chance until October really.

So, knowing June is MY MONTH, I decided to skate every day rain or shine and hoped to skate 10 miles each day. I exceeded that slightly. Yes, anything over 300 miles skating is a fantastic skate month for me.

Adding the commute and utilitarian miles alone gives me 200 or so bike miles every month. I also added a couple decent pleasure rides in June.

Stuck with it and no serious injuries. Put off every home project I could as well. So that's it. Thanks for asking!

One good footnote: My 256 miles of roller skating was on QUAD skates! The other 70 "skate" miles were skateboard sessions. Have not touched the inlines in about three months. Just enjoying the old school roll right now. And quads grip so much better on wet surfaces than inlines. 1 -2 mph slower though. No biggie.

70.22 miles of skating, 300 overall including bike/hike/ whatever. 212 just my bike commute.

Sore heel kept me off the skateboards. Heat/rain limited everything else.

Eh. Not every month can be awesome.

I thought I had a pretty solid month. But looking at last year's stats, I'm not so sure. Average heart rate and speed are down. This may be due to the lack of group training sessions. This year's race, Chicagoland was also slower than last year's Barbary Coast. Pretty miserable, actually. My slowest marathon ever. That's what happens when you mislabel an obstacle course as speed event and then it rains.

Peek distance, at least, is up noticeably. I'm doing A2A this year so I snuck in a 100K on the last Sunday of the month. Another one at faster pace just two days ago. But that will go on August ledger. August might have relatively better numbers since I'm doing Grand Forks again. Last year's eclipse was very cool but it did nothing for my skating stats.

Numbers are down a little from last year. This is a little surprising since I swapped a relatively sedentary eclipse trip for a race and I snuck in a 100K training skate.

One thing that is very different is heat. Summer of 2017 got seriously hot several times. Despite the high temperatures in the fire zones, the Bay Area has been surprisingly temperate. I'm actually a little concerned. I'm doing A2A this year. Low temperatures have made it easier for me to fit in long skates (72 miles yesterday) as my hydration needs can be met with a single 3L Camelbak. The downside is that Georgia gets hot, I may not be as ready.

September should be exciting as I have not one, but two races. Back to back weekends, even. Duluth on 15th and New York 100K on the 22nd.

July and August both under 100 miles for me.

August I got 81.8 miles of combined skating. I don't track my cycling but just my commute is 200 miles/month.

Weather killed me in July. Sore heel issue AND bad weather made me decide to seek physical therapy while the heat or rain was keeping me sidelined anyway. Halfway through 10 PT sessions and heel is feeling better. Should be up and skating before the first cool front.

Job search is also crimping my style. This will continue through September. So will hurricane season. October is my target for health.

Ouch. I'm curious, what sort of PT do you do for sore heal?

Job search would crimp anyone's style. Are you currently working?

Hurt my heel pushing a skateboard that was too high for too many miles and too many days. Then kept doing it for a couple months after it was injured. It was Spring and the weather was perfect so I kept on. Tried to heal it myself for several months but failed. Always went away with care in the past. Not this time. Getting old.

Plantar Fasciitis PT:

1. 15 minute foot Jacuzzi. Foot submerged with hot water jet directed at arch and heel.

2. Deep tissue massage of calf, ankle, heel, and arch. HURTS!

3. Dry needles in heel with mild electric current. Feels pretty good. Like someone gently hammering the bottom of my heel.

4. Four different calf and arch stretching exercises on machines and trampoline.

5. 20 minutes of ice.

Here are a couple of photos:







If you have any miracle cures, let me know!

Yes, I have a job currently. Needing a change. Something with benefits. My heath insurance premiums are outrageous and my deductible is high.
