Pardon the title, it was either so fly it July or in July I will be a social butterfly…bahaha.
So I have been telling myself I will get back on top of blogging but have been so busy it has clearly been a fail. I have been wanting to do a food blog and for some reason I have just not been in the mood. Maybe my food has essentially been the same…maybe I forget to charge my camera or maybe I just quite frankly don’t feel like sharing what I’m eating. Actually it is just more or less that my food is boring and won’t interest anyone at the current moment. I mean unless sandwiches are your jive…
But anywho-Can you believe it’s already July?
Do I need to make July goals like many of my favorite blogging besties?
Possibly because I have been so scatterbrained lately but I actually have a lot of adventures planned for July to keep me in check so we shall see.
Since you are oh so curious about stalking my July Schedule-I’ll share with you my tentative plans and festivities. Then I can also refer back here when I forget what the hell is going on in my life.
July 4th 5k
and hanging out with Chef Katelyn! Epic blogging meetup again (duh).
July 5th I believe I have a nighttime 4 mile race. It’s part of a group of races called the summer series but I should probably look into it ha. It isn’t as serious as most road races and that is why I love them. To run is fun-because running is funning sounds like I never graduated from elementary school.
July 6-8-I’ll be in New York City dropping on the broski to college. AH-I’m going to miss him a ton blergy berg. I won’t be able to talk to him but on Sundays for about 5 minutes for the first couple of months.
July 12th is my 21st birthday. Feel free to send me a pair of granny panties because I’m actually 20 going on 99.
July 16th is a hugh jass race called the Allen Stone Run Swim Run.
1k run on the beach-1k swim in the ocean-5k run on the boardwalk. I won last year so I kinda would like to repeat that.
July 21-26-I’ll be tentatively traveling and probs away from the blog.
July 30th-I have a 2 mile open water swim just North of New York City. My relatives all come and do it too-it’s like way to much of my cray cray family. I’ll literally be able to see Matt’s college-but can I visit? No.
Seriously-I am one busy woman in July. Good heavens. It will most certainly be my most busy month of summer as August dies down.
As far as this weeks stats go:
Running: 62 miles
Swimming: 2 hours
Cross training: 2 hours
This was a heavy week for me and next week tapers down again. Since I will be traveling to NYC and doing 2 races, it’s important for me to realize that I’m not going to be able to get all the heavy training that I can normally get at home. We shall see how everything goes and no need to get my panties in a bunch that I won’t be running and swimming as much as both training plans call for.
Hypothetically I’d like to get: 50 miles of running and an hour of swimming, but I’m not holding my breath.
Well like I said. Anna and I have a 5k July 4th. I would like to be under 21 minutes right now. I have no speed work because of my heels so anything under 21 minutes I’ll be pretty pleased. By the end of the summer-I should be under 19:30 at least.
I had some of my favorite carbs for dinner to prepare of course. I love this Greek restaurant. I had the baked pasta with gyro meat and pita bread with feta cheese. Can you say I’m overly full and nom.com is my belly. #hellyes
Question for you:
How do you feel about speedwork? Love/hate it?
What are you doing in July? (Coming for a pancake party for my 21st…of course you are!)
