How is it September already? I feel like it was just yesterday that I was complaining that I would never be able to get all of my runs in with the kids at home all the time. And as excited as I am for school to start up again, I'm kind of going to miss my summer running schedule. (Someone remind me of that next May when I start complaining ...)
Anyway, here is my August 2010 in review ...
Miles Planned/Miles Ran: 200/208.42 (my first time over 200 miles!)
Rest Days Planned/Rest Days Taken: 9/7 (Shelly's 10 day challenge contributed to this)
Highest Mileage Week: 8/23 - 8/29: 48.37 miles
Long Runs Planned/Long Runs Completed: 5/5
Donuts Burned: 149.82 (my favorite statistic on Dailymile)
Current Book: Earlier this month, I finished the third book in the Twilight series, Eclipse. I will hopefully get through Breaking Dawn on my upcoming trip to Seattle.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Could that show be anymore of a train wreak? Probably not. But I can't stop watching.
Current Colors: Turquoise and Orange
Current Drink: Water. Lots of it.
Current Song: Secrets - OneRepublic
Current Triumph: I killed my races in August. On the 12th, I finished 1st in my division at the Moonlight 4 Miler in 32:13. And then, on the 22nd, I finished 3rd at the Pink Power Sprint Tri without a single minute of bike or swim training in over two years. I'm feeling kind of confident right now.
Current Goal: Remain injury-free through this training cycle and demolish my half marathon PR at the You Go Girl! Half Marathon on September 26th. Tall Mom is pacing me for this race and I have SUPER HIGH hopes!
Current Blessing: Pretty much everything. Life is pretty sweet right now. And I don't take that for granted.
Current Excitement: Did you know that Kindergarten starts in 6 days? And that preschool starts in 12? I might be slightly excited for that. Just saying.
