Just Running By

Well it’s been quite a while since I’ve updated, a lot has happened! : ) June has been a really busy month for me, it’s just been running by! I’ve had a lot of summer BBQs and parties going on. Last weekend I helped throw a bachelorette party for one of my closest friends which was really fun. I chopped off a few inches of my hair and got it thinned big time.

And so far in June? I’ve run 94 miles. My biggest month ever! This past couple of weeks since I last updated I have run my longest runs ever – last Saturday being the longest at 7.07 miles. I’m also getting my speed back – my run today and yesterday were 10:32 and 10:21 avg pace. A massive 40 second plus drop in speed from last week. I am on my way back, all those tortious interval runs are paying off – with muscle memory!

This weekend I am making my 2012 racing debut with an 8K tune-up race (Run for Freedom) for the Tely 10 coming up on July 22. I am really excited about this weekend’s race – it is supposed to be a beautiful course so I can’t wait to run it.

 

I am almost afraid to say it but I am so thankful that my injuries seem to be healed – it took a long time to come back from being injured but I am here and so happy. These past 2 mornings have been amazing runs and the high I have when I finish is like no other. I will get faster and I will get stronger. Smile Though my paces aren’t near as fast as they were last year this past 2 weeks has given me confidence to be sure I will get back there and I couldn’t be happier about it.

 

Anyone else chop their hair off in the summer?

What was the best thing to happen to you today?

Morning or night-time workout?

Anyone racing this coming weekend?

Any locals running the Run for Freedom in St. Mary’s or the Tely?
