July – Gettin Better All the Time…

I usually hate to rush the summer. But this year, the faster the time goes, the sooner I am running & racing again!!


July Goals:

  • Continue to heal the broken foot – YES but this is really out of my control.
  • Follow doctor’s orders and don’t overdo – YES for the most part.
  • Ditch the crutches – YES but I really did this last month.
  • Wear 2 of the same shoes – YES!

wore 2 running shoes all month


even wore sandals

  • Walk – Yes, started with the treadmill, then the track, then the road…


  • Bike – YES, started with the stationary bike and then ended with a regular bike
  • Run a little (yes, I am being optimistic) – YES, 1 mile, then 2 miles, then 3 miles… 🙂

I also spent more time on our boat and on the islands of Lake George than last month.

  1. #2 should be in bold also! Listen to your body.
    I think my legs were tired from those New York hills yesterday. Rolling was the wrong term for them.
