I cannot believe today is the last day of June. Even more I cannot believe we are almost halfway through the year. In a way I am glad. This year has not been going well…at all. It does make me wonder how the rest of the year will go. I have not done a monthly review in a long time so here is one for June.
Miles Ran: 84.91. I did 22 runs this month for a total of 17 hours, 21 minutes, and 27 seconds. So far this has been my highest month and I hope the next few months I can get to at least 100 miles.
Highest Mileage Week: 23.33. I am slowly building up my mileage. I am really impressed with those that run 40-50 miles each week. I usually run 5 days a week but last week was the first time in a few months where I ran 6 days.
Shoes: I started the month running on the Brooks Levitate 1 that I purchased last year. This month I am wearing the Brooks Launch 5. They’re very comfortable and so far one of my favorites of the Launch. I don’t want to check and see how many new pairs I have in boxes. 🙂
Races Planned/Completed: 0/0. No races at all this year (at least I don’t think there will be races for the rest of the year). I remember at one point I was planning to go to Hawaii for the Kona Half Marathon which was supposed to take place on the 21st.
Current Challenge: I’ve been doing Deborah’s Run Bet Challenge and the California Virtual 500. The goal is to run 250 miles by Labor Day. So far I’ve run 61 miles. I am the last one. 🙂
Current Book: Right now I am reading two books. I started reading “Darling Rose Gold” which I heard about in Wendy’s blog post. Then a friend of mine hosted a Zoom book club gathering to read “Fruit of the Drunken Tree”. So far both are good.
Next Race(s): At this point I have no idea. My goal of running a half marathon in each state is on hold. The last half marathon I did was in GA and it was state #43. I am so close.
Current Excitement: I have two weeks left for summer school. I’ve mentioned before that it is going well. I am looking forward to Summer break and hopefully do something fun. I would like to travel but we’ll see how that goes.
I finished decluttering my closet. Next is the kitchen, my bedroom, the living room, and the office/cats’ room.
What am I looking forward to next month? Run more miles and finish reading my books. I am watching “Madam Secretary” on Netflix but will put that on hold to read. I’ve put in my application for a pre-approval to buy a house so hopefully next month I can start looking again and find something that I like.
