August Totals and Dislocated Finger

First the dislocated finger. I did it catching a nerf football at the company picnic. Nothing I wouldn't do again and I would toss this ball to my 20 month old. Silly and just caught it all on the pinky. This is not the actual x-ray but it looks EXACTLY like the one I had. Pretty gruesome actually. I still haven't really felt any pain. Just a 1 out of 10 so far. I hope my super healing properties work on an injury like this. The doc said it might and that it would prolly mean it would be super duper stiff though. Was able to do 4 pull-ups today and push the stroller 9 miles so training should be fine. Should be able to ride by sunday. I have to have the brace on for 6 weeks though! So swimming is out of the question. Will prolly bring the bands back out.

August totals.

Swim 1:25:00 3700
Bike 29:03:00 527
Run 14:55:00 112.5
Weights: 0:10:00
Total: 45 hours 33 minutes
Days off: 8
Workouts: 29
Key Workouts: 8/26: 7x1mile @ 7:30-0:10 until 6:30 (7:20, 7:10, 7:00 ect) all on a hilly grass course in Vibrams. That was the "key" part if that workout.

August goals.
Swim 20,000 Big FAIL (No motivation without race)
Bike 350 Big WIN Got some good miles in this month
Run 140 Small Fail Not too bad.

This month I ended up with a fairly good volume. I lost a lot of motivation after deciding not to race a sprint in early sept and a half iron late in the month. In lieu of that it was a pretty good month. Feel like I finally got in some cycling since the baby came along. Feeling like I will be ready for IM training. I have been building a training program that really starts in Oct and then runs until mid Dec and then a month break before kicking it up again. I will post that in a few days prolly.

Sept Goals
Swim NONE haha stupid finger.
Bike 300 This could be lofty with camping for work or pretty low.
Run 135 Really need to hit 40 a week to be ready for IM training so this is the main goal.
Weights are going to start up again. This I mainly want to get in some good sessions. Oddly weights are more qualitative for me then anything as how intense and how they fit into the week.
