Tuesday- 3 miles with Brittany + abs/arm workout
It was a beautiful cloudy kind of morning. I took a pic of Brittany and I, and let’s just say it wasn’t my morning so another sun/mountain/cloud pic is what you get!
After I did some abs/arms workout and J was right there with me. In fact, he thought he’d just go for a run. . .
Later on in the day I was chatting with my neighbor about running. I’m sort of in a running limbo. I’m not really training for anything in particular, although I do have a couple races on the calendar(Halloween half, and probably another half in August). I try and stay in half marathon shape(keep my mileage up) so I don’t have to re-train for them.
I feel ready to sign up for a full, but we’re traveling a bit the next couple of months. I don’t think that I could adequately train in enough time. I know I could run a full and survive, but I want my first full to feel great. I don’t want to be completely dead after.
So, this summer is not the summer to run a full. Should I make other running/workout goals? Should I continue to have fun with running and make it more of a social activity(which I’m loving)?
Goals I’ve thought of:
PR(beat my personal record) in the half marathon
Work on strength training, building muscle
Work on distance(maybe not 20 miles but 15-16)
Build my weekly mileage past 30 miles
And because the post wouldn’t be complete with at least 100 pics of J, he finished swimming lessons last night! I also got to cuddle my nephew=)
What are your summer goals?
What’s your favorite summer running gear?
