Month in review: July 2014

July saw a return of injuries. On July 6th I ran a 100m that I was moderately happy with; but then on the 100m series of the national championships a week later a set of injuries reared its ugly head again.

Despite the injuries, my focus in July was more on track and less on longer trail runs. There were also somewhat long periods of rest and recovery mandated by my injury state and work requirements.

Oddly enough rest and skipping long runs seemed to have had less of a positive influence on the soreness in my achilles tendon than anticipated, so for the months ahead maybe the solution will be to do more, rather than less.
Walking: I walked a total of 86km, most of which was done in +-3km increments during my lunch breaks. Vertical elevation was pretty negligible, on the walks where I wore a watch I recorded only 664m.
Road&Trail Running: 4 runs, 25.9km total (433m vert.)

Track Trainings: 9 track trainings, 2 competitions

Indoor cycling: 3 session of 1h15 total (38.6km)

Average body weight: 81.6kg (14.7% body fat)

Body weight and body fat changed in a positive way in July, even if I still reverted to unhealthy eating habits quite often. My average weight for July was down about 1kg compared to June.
