        Speaking of finish I have two races this month; a mile the first week and a 5k the last week.

         

        1. The 5k is run on a paved trail where the distance traveled was deceiving to me last year racing through all that greenery, so it will be interesting to see how I have adapted.

         

        I do not really have a goal for it as it will likely be hot and steamy but I would like to do well in terms of vdot, and not blow-up like last time.

         

        2. The mile is a bit more important and I have all kinds of hopes for it but most of all I just do not want to blow it.

         

        3. As far as mileage this will be another take it easy month for me and I am hoping to take a week completely off at some point during it.

         

        1. I decided to take it easy during the 5k and did not go all out for the first time ever in a race.  I have been nursing a groin injury and just saw no point in pushing things in an event that was more of an obligation to run than a goal race.
        2. After introspection, I guess I did pretty well at my mile race after all.  I had higher expectations but a 12 second improvement is nothing to dismiss.  I should have taken a bit more joy in that performance.
        3. I took 5 consecutive days off during the second week of the month and mentally feel as fresh as ever which was the goal.

        All in all it was a good month as those thing go.

            -Start getting the mileage back up.  225 miles would be good.

            -Keep up with the speedwork

            -Have a good duathlon (July 12) and beat last year's time (2:43)

            -Keep being awesome

             

            -Not quite at 225 but I'll end with around 230.

            -Score.

            I've had a really good month and can't wait for those fall races.  Still a month to train before the next race too!

              • Not really...
              • Not so much...
              • Definitely not 
              • Finish my first HM
              • Start 10 mile training
              • Do my PT exercises!
              • 48 miles

                If I can manage, by the end of the month, to run 6 days a week and not feel so out of shape, I will be happy.

                 

                I would say 50%. I ran 6 days / 54 miles last week but definitely still out of shape.

                  - 60+mpw

                  - Drop at least 4lbs to hit the 170s

                  - Start my Pfitz 18/70 plan

                  - Have fun at the Summer Series

                  - Sub-19 at the TSMS 5k

                   

                  - Done, sort of, last week was a lil low, but if I don't get hit by a car today or tomorrow, I'll have a monthly mileage PR. Smile

                  - Done, sort of. lol I was at 180.2 this morning, so I might hit 179 tomorrow.  If not, I'm still on track for my goal weight for Richmond.

                  - Done, and it's going great!

                  - Done, had a blast, so glad I was able to make it this year!

                  - Nope, but I won my AG and ran a 19:16 on a crazy twisty course, so I'll take it.  Cooler weather and a faster course and I'm going deep into the 18s.

                    Refurbished Hip

                      Run 10 miles this month. If PT bumps me up to 1-2 minute running intervals toward the end of the month, this might be doable.  It's good to have these difficult goals, no? 

                       

                      23 miles so far this month!  I'm up to 3:30 minute intervals.  My hip continues to feel stronger as time goes on.  Sometimes it even feels like maybe I'll be a runner again.

                            Due to vacation I missed this thread at the start of the month.

                             

                            My goal was not to let my vacation wreck my marathon build-up.

                             

                            My highest mileage month in two years I think shows I met that goal.

                              Out of shape = slower than before.

                               

                              Nice on the 23 miles.  Do you go for 25 straight minutes next week then?  That should start to feel like real running.

                                 

                                23 miles so far this month!  I'm up to 3:30 minute intervals.  My hip continues to feel stronger as time goes on.  Sometimes it even feels like maybe I'll be a runner ultra-hiker again.
