June Training

June Training

I hope everyone had a good Fourth of July!

Training wise, usually June is a tough month for me.  It was an “easier” month because I did run but it was in the bottom of how months have gone.  It’s hot, humid, and I’m not adjusting to the weather well.  To be honest, I like the heat far more than the cold, I’m just not adjusting to the weather well.

Anyway, I did put down some races but none were anything to say: “the best race ever”.  I had fun at each though.  The Newport 10 miler being my favorite as I got to see my family.

Miles Run:
Range of Paces: 6:07-12:03-untimed.
Rest Days:
Races:
Newport 10 Miler (1:03.57)
Fathers Day 5k (20:06)
Bungalow Beach 5 Miler (32:12)

Irish Festival 5k (20:25)

Thoughts:

Looking back I ran nearly all of these races at the same pace.  Running a 5k and 10 miler at the same pace is probably not the indicative of fitness but the weather, course, and training all played into account.  There isn’t a whole heck of a lot to say right now.  June was a busy month and I think July will be as busy.  While yes, running is fun and I enjoy it, it’s not the only thing I like.

The summer, for me, isn’t about grinding away at PRs, it’s about having fun.  I don’t want to train hard because I would rather do that when I’m less busy.  I like to be outdoors hiking or just relaxing as much as I like to be outdoors running.

  1. Sounds like you’re succeeding in your goals of having fun with running and with everything else! Hope you have a great month of July ^.^
    My 4th was pretty rough as you may have seen and that kinda compounds with how my month of June went. I haven’t been adjusting to the heat well and it’s really draining on me mentally as I don’t know how to “fix” it.
