day 1!

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!

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!!!!
