            Stay healthy, stay injury free and don't die could be bundled up together under "stay healthy", no? Because if you die, you ain't too healthy anymore.

                          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?

                            Hell to the yeah.  It's not where you start it's where you finish.

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

                               

                              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.

                               

                              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.

                               

                              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.

                                4. Swim at least 30 min/day when I have pool access
