basically i had a good week of workouts while at the beach, a lazy week of nothing, a semi-decent week of running, and the rest of the month off due to (non-injury) pain/discomfort. i've actually been ok with all the not-running; i'm telling myself i needed the time off. i could do without the weight creep though. it is a little frustrating though because it seems like everyone else (/all of you) runs non-stop all year long, while i have to have these random annoying health issues. i'm thankful they're at least minor issues, but it'd be nice to have no-issues. i could temporarily cover up the discomfort with prednisone but i'd prefer to not pump 'roids in my body.
so, since there still isn't any running to talk about, how 'bout some pictures?
my dad, sister and i flew up to connecticut for a cousin's wedding. we went out to block island for a day and the weather channel app on my phone registered 106° (feels like 131°). such pleasant weather to spend the day biking (leisurely, about 8mph) around the island!
these bikes were built for speed
i climbed down the bluffs to the beach
