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!!

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!
Great job lady! I’m at work today but planning on taking my kids to the fireworks tonight!
Thank you! I hope you and your girls enjoyed the fireworks!
