June in Review

1 Jul

Workout: 9 miles, 9:20 pace. I had to get my long run in before traveling to Nashville tomorrow! This run was easier then I thought it would be. I stopped twice for water and took a GU at mile 6. I only walked one time too which was a huge improvement from my last few long runs.


The month of June went by SO quickly. Since I have gotten back into regular running this month I figured I should re-cap it for you all.

This month was a big step up from May when I only ran 18.5 miles (I was recovering from a hip injury). I am also excited about it because I did TWO races and was happy with both of them. I think my race anxiety is improving a lot.
Today I also figured out my year in review so far: 396.9 miles ran! I am thinking maybe I should start a challenge for myself..goal to run 800 miles this year..or maybe 1000?
July should be a good running month as I continue to train for the Chicago Rock n Roll Half Marathon. Cross your fingers for no injuries and strong long runs!
How was your exercise in the month of June?
Anyone else have a yearly mileage goal? What should mine be? 
Day 28: 50 min weights/elliptical
Day 29: 84 min run- 9 miles

    Go for 1000! It’s only 100 a month! I think my yearly mileage so far is right about where yours is, but I’m hoping to be more consistent for the rest of the year… should be able to do at least another 750!

    I’d say shoot for 900, then you have to get more than the first half, but without jumping TOO much. No sense pissing off the hip again. 😉
