June In Review

Summer is here and I'm loving it.  Best of all, I love spending all of this time with my family.  Marathon training is in full swing and I feel that I'm off to a good start. 

Last June:


I didn't even break 100 miles last June.  What was I thinking?  I should have at least gone out for that last 0.3 miles to round it out. 


This June:


My highest month yet!  I do enjoy watching those numbers grow and grow.  Let's see how high they get with marathon training. 
Miles Run 2012:

702! 

I am starting to really like DailyMile for logging my runs/workouts.  But I am missing the calendar view of LogYourRun.  If only DailyMile could just add in that feature as well. 

I'm not so sure about this feature though - really?  I've burned 22 pounds since January 1st? 
I wish the DailyMile would also total my running for the year in addition to the total milage (running, biking, etc).  I do like seeing 1,074 miles - but it's quite deceiving. 


Looking back at my goals.......

My goals for June -
- kick off marathon training injury free  ---- Started!
- add in hills/speed work ----  YES!  I've done 1 track workout so far & I'm going to count the KRRT 1/2 as speed work too.  I'll be back at the track/hills next week. 
- register for/run the KRRT 1/2 Marathon --- Registered & ran it!
- do yoga on my own 2x/week --- not quite.  I just bought a Rodney Yee, Power Yoga Collection DVD and I am loving it. 
- increase bike mileage -- Not so much. 


- roll daily (so far I'm 100% on this!) - Not so much.  I rolled consistently for 2 weeks and then stopped.  Revisiting today. 


July Goals:
- continue on with marathon training
- increase biking mileage
- more yoga
- more weights
- more rolling
- finally take on trail running! 
- try to NOT eat entire bags of chips at a time (that is why I have not lost that 22 lbs)
- go to the beach as much as possible

How was your June?  Goals for July?

    1. I emailed you! It's in Augusta - at the top of the Camp Keys hill - behind the cemetary. The guys did it last summer while I had kid duty and took pictures. I was so jealous each week. I cannot wait to try it out.

    1. Ha! I don't want to lose 22 lbs at all. I'm sooo happy where I am right now (fitter and weigh less than high school years!). Someday - I'll get to your level of 200+ miles! :)
