So how did this month go (besides too fast)?
Summer arrived. It was warm most days and we had very little rain. So I was able to run at least 3-4 times each week.
There were NONE. I ran races on the weekends. There were NO double-digits runs. The longest were a 7 mile run and a 5 mile post 5k run.
I ran 76 miles this month – the lowest amount in many many months. But I wasn’t training for anything and it’s summer so I guess that’s ok.
I ran FOUR races this month – three 5Ks and a 10 miler.
I was generally happy with how they all went. I did not have PR goals and of course, they could have been faster. I won age group awards in two of the 5ks. The Adirondack Distance Run was my 2nd fastest 10 mile race (out of 6).
Now that I am unemployed, I have been able to play A LOT of tennis – 3-4 times a week. I have met new people and I have enjoyed it.
I DID NOT go to a single yoga class!! Someday I will do, I promise.
I did to the gym at least twice. I know that I should go more but it’s a start.
I walk to the tennis courts when I play nearby and occasionally do go for a walk. But not as often as when I worked. I think that the tennis makes up for it, though.
I finished my volunteering with STEM. The participants all ran their 5k race and it was an awesome experience. I can’t wait to do it again in the fall.
I went hiking twice…by myself and loved it.
Boating season has begun. The weather has been great. I love it at the lake.
Feeling healthy so Life Is Good.
Hopefully I will find a job and life will be even better.
I’m not sure when my next half marathon will be. So far, it’s not until October. But that could change. (ZOOMA Cape Cod Half Marathon which I was scheduled to run in September got cancelled 😦 )
I do have a bunch of races coming up. This is my list so far for the next 2 months:
- 7-10-16 – Saratoga Springs Strong to Serve 5K
- 7-23-16 – Silks and Satins 5K
- 7-31-16 – Care for Kids 5k
- 8-06-16 – Race the Train (8.4 m)??
- 8-13-16 – Camp Chingachgook 10k or Half Marathon
- 8-20-16 – Jailhouse Rock 5K
No monthly goals.
Happy Running! How did your June turn out? Anything exciting planned for July?
