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!!
