June 2010 Recap

 JUNE 2010

# of runs: 19

Distance: .......... 100.0 Miles / 161 Kms
Monthly Goals:  100.0 Miles / 161 Kms

Summary: WAHOO Met my distance goal!  Started the month off slow again and didn't run much while on holiday.  But as soon as I came back I picked it up and worked out a plan to meet my goal.  I pretty much had to run every day for the last third of the month in order to meet my goal.  So, to avoid injury, I slowed down my pace.  I've stayed injury free and it was actually kind of neat to experience daily running, running on tired legs, and the mental challenge of running when I really did not feel like it.  Normally I tend to run every 2nd or 3rd day and I've always wanted to do more like 3 days on, 1 day off sort of thing.  This was a good experience to learn how to push through that mentally.


YTD Distance:  477 Miles / 767 Kms
750 mile Goal: ..370 Miles / 595 Kms
1000 mile Goal: 493 Miles / 793 Kms

As for my other goals ....

Plan! Prepare! Organize! - This has gone pretty well, but I'm not doing so much pre-planning lately.  Mostly because I'm getting more used to thinking ahead and I'm pre-planning naturally and I'm not finding myself in that position of not having a clue what to cook nor having the ingredients to do so.

Run a timed 5K and a timed Half Marathon - This didn't happen.  Honestly my heart just wasn't into it and I'm not going to force myself to do something I don't feel like doing.  Probably a good thing I didn't have any scheduled races.

30 Days of Activity - Did it!  Though some days were pretty lame, I did it.  I really liked this idea as it kept one missed day of activity from turning into 2 days, then 3, etc.

I haven't put much thought into my July goals yet.  I'm away for a couple days and will think about them and see what I come up with. 

Happy Canada Day

Keep Active!

Well done on meeting your running goals....

I am finding the hills on my route getting harder and harder and not easier..its been three months and I now find I am walking the hills and no longer running.
I am either getting older or running too much...ah so frustrating..I need a nice flat route!!
