May Running Round-Up

I'm going to chalk May's low mileage up to life. It seemed like life really got in the way of exercise this month. A sorry excuse but that's what happened. I only ran 8 times in May and just one long run. Ay dios mio!

May 1: 3.5 mi TM in 29:55 min, 9:00/8:38/8:22/3:49 - not much pain
May 6: 7 mi TM in 64:45, 9:15 pace at 6.5 mph, some pain but mostly felt good
May 8: 3.6 mi TM in 29:45, 7:30/8:15/8:25... 10 mins @ 8mph!
May 13: 2.5 mi OT in 25:00, humid! Some pain
May 14: 3.? Mi OT in 34:00, humid - no pain
May 16: 3 mi TM ??? Time
May 22: 4 mi TM in 35:35, 9:18/8:42/9:04/8:31 - slight pain at 8mph, no other times
May 30: 1.4 mi TM in 13:00 with warm up/cool down - tempo run

28 miles

Despite the low mileage, I did have few high points. I had my longest run ever, 7 miles. And, I ran my fastest mile ever, 7:30. So, I'll try to focus more on that and not on the fact that I was nowhere near 50 miles. I need to try not to let life stand in the way as much. No excuse for not lacing up my Brooks and hitting the pavement.

Better effort in June. Promise!

P.S. Need a good power song while running? Try 'Til I Collapse' by Eminem. My new fave!
