I am deviating from this week’s topic to instead do a monthly review. Global Running Day is on Wednesday and I plan to run that day. I do not know exactly how long I will be running but I will be out there.
Another month/sheet to rip off from my wall calendar. With May almost over that means we are almost halfway through the year. And what a year it has been so far!
As you know I was excited to pack up and finish this school year. I was moved to the classroom across the hall. It faces east, bigger, and nicer layout. I was actually excited about it – even if it meant packing EVERYTHING in my room. On Friday we found out that the school will be closed for the 2022-2023 school year and I will be going to a different school. Not only do I have to pack everything, but I need to bring my personal stuff home. Why? In case boxes get lost, misplaced, etc. I have spent a lot of money on school stuff and I would be upset it I don’t see it in my room next year. The good thing about it is that now we have until June 10th, instead of the 7th, to pack up. But during that time I also need to set up my room for Summer School. Sigh. These next two weeks will be very interesting.
So let me tell you about how this month is going.
I was doing good in May with my run streak but halfway though the month I got a cold. Once I was better, I got a fever. It must have been too much for me because I took a week off to recover. However, I wasn’t feeling it and took a few days off again. I don’t think I’ll start a new run streak and I am OK with it.
Mileage: I finished the month with 55.40 miles. I am a bit disappointed because last month I ran 68.13 miles. I know it is lower this month because I missed 10 days of running. All of my runs have been easy runs with run/walk intervals. Each day I run for a specific amount of time instead of miles. No complaints there!
Highest Mileage Week: 18.16. It was during the first week of May and it took me 3:49:15 hours.
Current Challenge: None. 😀 Any other ideas?
Current Book: Finally reading “Falling”. So far it is good. I told my sister she could put the TV I had in my room in her room. I told her I was planning to read more instead of watching so much TV. Right now the only show I am watching is “The Golden Girls” and can watch it on my phone or my computer.
Current Shoes: Still running in the Brooks Launch 7. So far I’ve run in them 147 miles.
2022 Running Goal: My goal this year is to run 1,200 miles. I am 13% done with 163.80 miles. Who knows how realistic this goal is. There are 7 months left this year. That means on average I would have to run about 148 miles each month. Doable?
