Seriously. How is it July already? Six months into 2010, I am well on my way to hitting my 1,000 mile goal (745 miles down through yesterday) and I am less than two weeks away from completing P90X. Oh, and while we are talking about P90X, note to self: DO NOT take a week off from the program to go on vacation and expect to be "all good" when you start up again. I am unable to lift my arms and my biceps are shaking while I type this. Thanks a lot, Tony Horton.
OK, vent over. Back to the point, six months down, six to go. Here is my recap of June 2010 ...
Miles Planned/Miles Ran: 134/158.17
Rest Days Planned/Taken: 9/8
Highest Mileage Week: 6/21-6/27: 40.23 miles (while I was on vacation)
Long Runs Planned/Ran: 4/4
Donuts Earned: 111.17 (my favorite statistic on Dailymile)
Current Book: OK. Hold on tight. For the second month in a row, I read an actual book (New Moon - Yes, I know I am way late on the Twilight bandwagon). Can you believe it? I read more than just a magazine. I know you are impressed. So what if it took going away without the kids to accomplish it?
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Um, yeah. About that. All of that ultra rich food I ate last week on vacation falls into this category. Just look at this Red Velvet Crepe, I had for lunch on Sunday. Not exactly low calorie ...
Current Colors: Pink and Orange. There is something so cheery about that combination.
Current Drink: Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla Coffee. All day. Everyday.
Current Song: L.A. Baby - Jonas Brothers (seriously? Did I just admit that?)
Current Triumph: My early morning runs. I have been sacrificing sleep to get my miles done and it has been totally worth it.
Current Bane of My Existence: Humidity. I love hot weather. It could be 95+ everyday and I would be just fine. I keep my house set at 75 degrees and because I am always cold, I wear long sleeves any time I am inside. But, humidity, it's too much. I hate it. And I REALLY hate running in it.
Current Goal: Survive my current training plan, which will have me at 50 miles per week by the end of the summer.
Current Blessing: Well, that kid-free vacation was quite the blessing. And of course, there is always my loving husband and kids. Oh, and winning entry to the Rock N Roll Chicago Half Marathon didn't suck either ...
Current Excitement: Lots. A long weekend with J and the kids starts tomorrow. Next week, the girls and I are headed to NJ to visit my mom. Then the following week, Katye is coming to visit and is going to run G's virtual race with us. Oh, and this outfit. I am loving how my navy/orange running skirt is the perfect match for my new Run U Mother shirt. It is definitely going to get some race exposure in the near future.
