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.
Range of Paces: 6:07-12:03-untimed.
Newport 10 Miler (1:03.57)
Fathers Day 5k (20:06)
Bungalow Beach 5 Miler (32:12)
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.
Plans for the Rest of July:
We are already 5 days into July! Anyway, my plans are the same as June. I will run when I can and enjoy the process along the way.

Questions for you:
How was your fourth of July?
How was the month of June?
Yes enjoy the summer!!! Great job!
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.
