The End of June

June 2009


The top searches leading to my blog are largely the same as last month. Here are some of the less frequent, yet funnier searches:

  • bicycle bald tire picture
  • boys wrestling camel clutch
  • female camel clutch hold
  • sexy camel clutch
  • “farmer blow”
  • eighties instrument keyboard worn over the shoulder
  • maple syrup drinking contest


I only ran one time at the beginning of the month, and it was enough to injure my right knee (my good knee). I’ve been struggling with knee pain all month, and that means no running. I swam farther than I ran in June.

I find it very frustrating that every time I work my way into great shape (typically when my 3-mile time drops close to 17:00) I injure myself and wind up losing months worth of training. Grrr.

Despite my knee pain I haven’t given up on cycling. Yet. I still commute to work and I’ve been averaging one or so training rides per week, but my fitness is fading. Fast. My total distance for the month was a pathetic 209 miles, less than a typical week last summer.

Fortunately, I was able to get in a couple good rides while we were in San Francisco. Cycling in California is always one of the highlights of my year.

I was swimming pretty well before the knee problem. Then I took a few weeks off. Now I’m getting back into the swing of it. If I can somehow manage to salvage most of my fitness through swimming until this knee thing goes away… it will be a miracle.
