June 2013 Month in Review

Ahhhhh I am so behind in life!!! The past 3 weeks I've been so MIA after 3 consecutive weekends of trips out of town without my computer so blogging was limited to my phone, which I hate doing so here is June's Month in Review-- albeit 11 days late!

As you can tell, June was a VERY low mileage month for me.  Only 45.2 miles and only roughly 11 hours of running. It was so hard for me to get moving in June after 3 trips out of the 4 weekends last month as well as the blistering North Carolina heat keeping me indoors!

The first week of June started off slow- I was in NJ for my cousin's wedding but the week following I stuck to my 3 days of running which ended with the Blue 5K on the Runway at PTI and a 5K PR! This was a great and exciting way to start off my month!

The second week of June I wanted to make a point of building my mileage back up and being consistent with my running again after taking a lot of time off in May from illnesses.  I had some consistent runs greater than 5K distance and some in the 4 mile range which was great!

The third week of June was pretty disappointing.  I only had 2 runs, one being less than 2 miles(!!!!!).  I was out of town that weekend in NYC for my brother's surprise proposal weekend and I did a TON of walking (too bad I never kept a record because it would've drained my phone battery all day) so I feel like everything evened out without getting the third run done.

The fourth week of June was sufficient.  That may sound weird but I felt pretty indifferent about my progress because I reverted back to quick 30 minute runs and even though I had all three runs completed, I was pretty unsatisfied with maintaining my mileage from the second week of June. The last weekend in June I was in Maryland for my cousin's wife's baby shower so I was a bit thrown off at the end of the month.

Ultimately, I feel like June was a good step towards getting back in half marathon shape and I nearly doubled my mileage from May so it isn't a complete disappointment right? I feel like with all the traveling I did this month, it took me forever to recover from the flights and car rides so when I eventually got home, I needed a couple extra days to recover- maybe I'm getting old and my old lady bones need more time to get back in the groove?

my thoughts on constant summer travels...

I had a lot of personal things come up and distract me and kept me unfocused for a lot of the month but thankfully, those unnecessary & irrelevant distractions are no more so here's to an even better July!!!!  Detroit training starts the first week of August so I really need to get my act together this month and get back to my 5 mile base/short run this month!
