June Rewind ...

Six months down, six to go. Here's my recap of June 2011 ...

Run Miles Planned/Miles Ran:

Bike Miles Planned/Mile Rode: 0 (I should probably start planning these)/155

Rest Days Planned/Rest Days Taken: 8/8

Highest Run Mileage Week: 6/20-6/26: 28.1 miles (I'm making a comeback!)

Highest Bike Mileage Week: 6/6-6/12: 70 miles

Long Runs Planned/Long Runs Completed: 4/4 (with a post-surgery distance PR of 9 miles)

Current Book: I'm not reading a book right now. I'm just reading the August 2011 Runner's World over and over again. And we all know why ...

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Klondike Caramel Pretzel Bars. Our grocery store had a huge sale on them, plus their purchase gave you bonus money off your fuel purchase. It was a win-win. Except I can't stop eating them ...

Current Colors: Purple and Turquoise

Current Drink: Tea. The hot variety. (Yes, I realize it's summer. But I am ALWAYS cold.)

Current Song: Watch Me - The Cast of Shake It Up

Current Triumph: I'm kind of on fire right now. I got the "all clear" from my doctor. My training is getting back to where I want it to be. I'm PICTURED IN RUNNER'S WORLD. I was selected to run Hood to Coast with Team Nuun. And I've raised 50% of my fundraising goal for NYC (click HERE to donate). Things are total awesomesauce ...

Current Goal: Continue to re-establish my mileage base AND help G get her sub-2 half at San Francisco.

Current Blessing: I feel like my whole life is one big blessing and I am entirely grateful.

Current Excitement: Runner's World. Hood to Coast. San Francisco. You take your pick.

2011 Goals - Status Update:

  • Clean up my diet - I am tracking my food religiously at SparkPeople, survived my sugar detox and have been able to add a small amount of sweets back in without causing a total binge.
  • Eat no more than 25 cupcakes - As of July 1st - 16 cupcakes eaten
  • Pay off our consumer debt by the end of the year - We have paid off over half of our consumer debt and are on track to be credit card debt free in 10 months. Plus, we are on track to have our student loans eliminated by February 2013, five month ahead of our schedule. And 10 years faster than if we let it go to term.
  • Spend $0 on clothing - As of July 1st - $54 spent - I caved and bought a Lululemon running skirt. It was so worth it.
  • Run 2,000 miles - As of July 1st - 854.08 miles run.
  • Run a sub 1:55 half marathon - Next race - 7/31, San Francisco Half
  • Take 30+ minutes off my marathon - Completed - 3/26, National Marathon, 4:15:48, 33:50 PR.

all I took away from this is that I need to go find some Klondike Caramel Pretzel Bars right now!

Great job in June girl! Okay so is this Klondike thing ice cream because if it is I better not go down the ice cream aisle at my grocery store or I am in big trouble!!

Jen said...

Great month!

I was going to pick SF, but I do think Runner's World is more exciting.

How could you not cave and get a Lulu skirt? It wouldn't have been fair to go another 6 months without it!

Darlene said...

Got my RW magazine yesterday. Your pic is AWESOME!!

Rachel said...

I am heading out TODAY to go pick up RW mag! Totally jealous of your consumer debt stuff.. can I be nosey and ask how you are doing it? Dave Ramsey? just budgeting?

Michelle said...

Love these monthly posts on your goals! :) You ROCK! Can't wait to see the RW. I'm envious (in a good way) of your sweets restraint! I've got none and I'm good with that! Hee, hee.

Life is pretty rosey in T's world right now. That's kinda a nice thing to follow up the whole shoulder/bike crash-age. Honestly I can't dream up what will come next. It's like a soap-opera. I'm waiting for the next big twist!

Enjoy the holiday with the fam.'

You have really bounced back from your injury--great mental toughness-love that! That will help in August ;)

Getting caught up here - totally neglected the blog over our long weekend, which started Thursday for me.

Congrats on a solid month. LOOK OUT, SHE'S BACK!
