How is it that we are halfway through the year?  

Hello July

• June was the end of the school year.  I also started teaching summer school and that ends this Friday.  For the rest of the month, I will be relaxing while also hanging out with family.  I have a cotillion on the 14th and then my sister and her husband will be in town for a week.

• Training went very well this month.  I am currently training for the ZOOMA Half Marathon in September.  There were some decent days but definitely quite a few HOT ones.  I’ve been doing my easy runs (3-4 miles) early in the morning before work.  If I don’t then I have to wait till 6-7 once it cools down a little bit.

• Ran 104.68 miles.  Another month over 100 miles.  I am now 47% done of my yearly goal.  

2018 Goal

• Total time running was 21:15.  Not quite a whole day but pretty close.

• 23 days of running.  I run 5 days a week and have been loving it.  Now I am at the point in my training plan in which I will be running 6 days a week.  Last week would have been my first week but I skipped my run on Sunday.

June 2018 Calendar

• Getting back to weekly speed workouts.  I had some really great ones when I was training during the winter.  Still pleased with how I am doing so far.

• Looking forward to 1 race in July.  I am running the Elmhurst 4 on the 4th on Wednesday.  It is one of my favorite races and I’ve done this race since 2013.

Overall, I am proud of myself with how I did in June.  I missed one run and didn’t finish another one.  Hopefully July is just as great or better!

  1. I’m starting to get out early on Tuesdays, and I need to figure out Thursdays. I may have to use the treadmill for that. I’m OK if I have to. Running in the heat is never easy.

  2. 6 days a week? That would exhaust me! 4 is plenty for me! It’s currently disgusting where I live, and it’s set to stay that way until Friday, when hopefully the heat breaks. Unfortunately I, too, have a race tomorrow!

    Good luck on yours & enjoy your downtime!

  3. It sounds like June was a great month for you! Its been a long time since I’ve run 6 days a week. Its exciting that your training is picking up now!

  4. I love my early morning runs, too. I just realized last night, as I went for a twilight walk, that I have not done an evening run in the summer for almost two years! I didn’t run all last summer (recovering from surgery), so I’m long overdue LOL I used to them occasionally in a “previous life.”

  5. You had an awesome June, congratulations!! I’m glad that training is going so well! I look forward to following along as you get closer to Zooma!

Thank you for your comment!
