Run: 43 miles
Lifting: 8 times

I set a personal best for most yards swam in a calendar month by swimming 30 miles in June. I basically swam 4 times a week with the Fins. I missed one practice but made up for it by swimming on my own twice at Philly public pools.

June was also the month when I added another exercise to my routine: biking 30 miles to work. It took about 2 hours each way. I think I can do this once a week in the summer and early fall.
