June 1st started #sweateverydayinjune
I am doing this with several friends, but especially one that I recently reconnected with that I was close with in high school…..Jen!
So, why not start out the month with a 5k?!
me with a lucky odd number bib for once! 🙂
There were 1,255 women that ran the 5k, and I came in 325th. Which is huge for me. This was the very first 5k that I did ever…in 2012. I have accomplished so much in one year.
Last year : 48:56.7 15:46/mi 913/1134
This year: 35:23.6 11:24/mi 325/1255
This was definitely not my best race. Time wise. I can do better. I will do better. BUT, I felt amazing. I ran more than I have ever run during the 3.1 miles. Especially if you knew how sore I was from the weeks runs/workouts. My legs were toast. I didn’t prepare the way I should have. I didn’t even take Friday off. Friday was an 11+ mile day. Overall, I would say it was my best yet!
in the middle of the pack….in all black. I think I need to smile 🙂
Me, Jen and her adorable son Tony 🙂
This month was a rough one!
I usually try to be at 100 by the 15th. This month I was way behind, at 70.34.
On the 30th, I was at 184.97. This would have been my first month under 200 miles since November. I decided that there was NO WAY I could let that happen. Last night, I took my lazy butt on a grueling 6.25 mile HOT run. Really, a jog. Sweat my arms off. It hurt, a lot.
That put me closer…….but then I also needed to get to the gym this morning. I wasn’t quite sure where I was at miles wise, because I left my log at work. So, I pulled out an 11.14! I was going to just do 12 again, but I was D.O.N.E.
In the end, I ended my month with 202.34!!!!! Also, a ton of self-pride! My YTD = 1078.93!
I did 40.425 on the bike, which is not in this number
I did only 28.25 outside this month…which needs changed.
The awesome thing, I have almost already beat my total from last year, ALREADY! WOW!!!!
