June Recap


So how did this month go (besides too fast)?

Weekday Runs:

Summer arrived.  It was warm most days and we had very little rain.  So I was able to run at least 3-4 times each week.

Long Runs:

There were NONE.  I ran races on the weekends. There were NO double-digits runs.  The longest were a 7 mile run and a 5 mile post 5k run.

Total Mileage:

 I ran 76 miles this month – the lowest amount in many many months. But I wasn’t training for anything and it’s summer so I guess that’s ok.

Races:

I ran FOUR races this month – three 5Ks and a 10 miler.

I was generally happy with how they all went. I did not have PR goals and of course, they could have been faster.  I won age group awards in two of the 5ks. The Adirondack Distance Run was my 2nd fastest 10 mile race (out of 6).

Cross Training:

Now that I am unemployed, I have been able to play A LOT of tennis – 3-4 times a week. I have met new people and I have enjoyed it.

I DID NOT go to a single yoga class!! Someday I will do, I promise.

I did to the gym at least twice. I know that I should go more but it’s a start.

I walk to the tennis courts when I play nearby and occasionally do go for a walk. But not as often as when I worked.  I think that the tennis makes up for it, though.

Other News:

I finished my volunteering with STEM. The participants all ran their 5k race and it was an awesome experience.  I can’t wait to do it again in the fall.

I went hiking twice…by myself and loved it.

I took a trip to NYC with Judy – We did a running tour of Central Park, went to the zoo and met a fellow blogger, Karen. What a full but exciting day!!

Boating season has begun.  The weather has been great. I love it at the lake.

Feeling healthy so Life Is Good.

Hopefully I will find a job and life will be even better.

Looking Ahead:

I’m not sure when my next half marathon will be.  So far, it’s not until October. But that could change. (ZOOMA Cape Cod Half Marathon which I was scheduled to run in September got cancelled 😦 )

I do have a bunch of races coming up.  This is my list so far for the next 2 months:

  • 7-10-16 – Saratoga Springs Strong to Serve 5K
  • 7-23-16 – Silks and Satins 5K
  • 7-31-16 – Care for Kids 5k
  • 8-06-16 – Race the Train (8.4 m)??
  • 8-13-16 – Camp Chingachgook 10k or Half Marathon
  • 8-20-16 – Jailhouse Rock 5K

No monthly goals.

my motto for 2016

Happy Running! How did your June turn out?  Anything exciting planned for July?

  1. Way more miles than I ran last month (not sure how many it was, but probably somewhere around 50, no double digit runs and no plans for any in the near future.

    A bunch of people in my running group are talking about doing Chingacook . . . it’s the weekend my brother is in town but I don’t think he gets in until Sunday, so I’m considering it.

    Waiting to see how my body feels. I was going to do it last year, and then my IT flared so I didn’t (and luckily hadn’t signed up for it).

  2. Wow, you had a busy month despite lower mileage. Lots of variety thrown in there ! You are lucky to have had such nice weather, I hope you are enjoying your weekend on the lake. Racing pretty much stops in an around Paris for the 2 months in the summer, I have nothing on the schedule until September….

  3. My long runs have come to a stop pretty much too. I did get in 5 miles at the beach and with all the scenery, it still didn’t seem like 5 miles. You had a great month and 76 miles is not shabby at all. Your month of many races sounded like mine back in April. I too missed the story on your retirement. Will you be returning to the workforce or is it official for you? I would love to try and decide how to spend my day! I think I would anyway. 🙂
