Miles Ran/Last Month: 65.18/61.64. May was my first month working with Coach Sara. Every Sunday she enters my workouts for that week. I do various types of runs such as easy, tempo, and long. I did my first ever speed workout on a track and loved it! I’ve always done them on the treadmill so this was something new to me.
Highest Mileage Week: 19.
Races Planned/Completed: 3/0. Sigh. I had planned to run 2 half marathons and 1 5K this month. And I backed out of all of them. Boo me. Luckily, I had registered for only one race (and paid $19.72) so it wasn’t that much of a loss. The reason I did not run it is because I went to the ZOOMA Training Kickoff. It was another gorgeous day for a run!
Current Ache/Pain: My knees. Just a slight pain when I walk. Might be the shoes?
Current Challenge: None. Last month was the 30-Day Plank Challenge and did not complete it. Need to think again how badly I want to do these challenges.
Current Book: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. I finished Catching Fire and loved it. I finished the book on Monday and went to Redbox to get the movie.
I also read Me Before You by Jojo Moyes for my book club. It is a great book and can’t wait to meet with the girls to talk about it. And drink too. 🙂
Current Song: Feel this Moment by Pitbull and Christina Aguilera. I love the beat and makes me want to run faster. Sometimes I find myself listening to it towards the end of a run to keep on going.
Current Treat: All-in-Almond by Picky Bars.
Next Race: Michelob ULTRA 13.1 Chicago on Saturday, June 7. I am looking forward to this race. So far weather is looking good.
Current Excitement: Less than two weeks to go.
