June Recap

Holy crap, it’s marathon month!  Where did June go???

June started with ouches and whimpers as I iced and rolled and stretched and dropped my running days down to 3.   I hated doing it but it’s what was needed.   I switched to survival mode and focused most of my attention on my long runs.  That said, my monthly mileage wasn’t too bad for a survival mode month.  😛


I did not run any races in June but did successfully complete my first 20 miler.  And I liked it.   Who knew?     I felt pretty good after it too…at least for a few days.  Now, I feel like I am learning to run all over again.  I think I resemble a baby giraffe at the moment.   But more on that in my week 14 training recap.

Oh, and I hit 502 miles for the year by June 30- sweet!!!

Now, it’s July.   It’s marathon month.  It’s also my birthday month.    San Francisco will be my first race in a new age group.  Truthfully, I can’t decide if I should be more alarmed at the speed that the race is coming or the reminder that I am getting older.  😛

How was your June?

Plans for July?

Happy 4th of July!!

  1. Dang woman, nice month!! Especially considering it started with ouches and whimpers. Nicely done! My June was okay, a bit all over the place. I’m hoping to restart a training plan (well, I already did this weekend! Yay little victory!) and gradually build my mileage through July. And today I’m volunteering at my run club’s annual 5k 🙂 Happy 4th!

    • Thank you! Good luck with the restart! Volunteering sounds awesome! I really need to volunteer at more races. I do the the 2 a year but this year I can’t even do one of those as I have a race the same day too. Boo. Good luck with your mileage build! Hope you had a good 4th!
