July Running Round Up

Spoiler Alert! I didn't hit 50 miles this month. Between vacation and a trip home, I just seemed to run out of days to log those miles. But, I did have some OK runs in there. Let's review!

Jul 3: 3 min OT in VT, 30ish mins
Jul 10: 4 mi in 35:55 TM, kinda rough
Jul 14: 4 mi OT in 40 mins, felt good - very little walking
Jul 15: 6 mi TM in 55:53, 9:25ish pace, tired legs but felt decent
Jul 17: 3.3 mi TM in 30 mins, 9:21/9:03/8:46 - felt decent
Jul 21: 3 mi OT in 30 mins, leg pain halfway
Jul 22: 5 mi TM in 47:07, rough run, pain and tired :(
Jul 24: 4 mi TM in 34:46, 1@6.5mph, 3@7.0 mph+
Jul 31: 4 mi TM in 35:52, 9:40/8:58/8:44/8:30 -tight hamstring

36.3 miles total

(OT is outside, TM is treadmill)
Also in July, I registered for my first scary half marathon and got new shoes.

Here are my new best friends, the Adrenaline GTS 12th series by Brooks. I've been in the 11th series for the last year so I hope I love the new model just as much. Only time will tell! I'm not too concerned that I didn't run 50 this month because my training program for the race is pretty intense and adds in an extra day of running each week. In 12 weeks, I'm supposed to run over 200 miles. So.....I think I'll be okay on my 500 goal. I just hope to stay injury-free. Fingers crossed!

P.S. Happy 2nd birthday to my nephew, BEN!
