So after my sappy emotional post yesterday where I basically informed y'all I am the most impatient person and yadda yadda yadda--- I figured I'd hit on some good things today!
I'm REALLY happy that July is over, it's not that it was a really bad month or even a bad month in general. I'm just ready for NEW, new month, new workouts, new perspective....
*Really getting into training for the next big thing on my agenda--Wineglass marathon. Week 2 is officially underway and it's going well--week 1 was pretty darn good too.
*On Monday night I am doing a trail/mud run. It's a small race south of Buffalo that a few of our friends are going so John and I decided to go out for it. I've said before I am not a good trail runner, I'm too much of a clutz. This won't be a race for me, just some good FUN muddy miles and time with my man and some friends :) [say a little prayer that I don't face plant please!]
*5k on the 10th, on the course where my current PR is-hoping to bust that 2 year old record!
*I also get to do a long run with Heather same weekend of said 5k- so excited, we will get to catch up (it's been way too long), and start planning shenanagins for Labor Day Weekend!
*As I said in my Summer Goals, I really want to strengthen my core. I've already been doing better the last few weeks, but after chatting with Hollie yesterday, I decided to do the August Core Focus Challenge (there is even a handy App for it!), so expect to see updates on that....will you join me? Hopefully this will give me a little more motivation to stick with regular core work!
*I also FINALLY bit the bullet and signed up for Foodie Pen pals through Lean Green Bean Blog. I've read everyone's recaps at the end of each month and always think "I really should do that, a great way to try new things", so I finally signed up. Can't wait to put something together for someone else, AND see what they put together for me :)
Like I said---July wasn't bad,
some highlights include:
I got to spend time with my family for 4th of July, which doesn't happen often
I completed my first 70.3
I did have the allergy issues, which did put a damper on some things- good news is it has finally been getting better! (bad news--still don't know what caused it in first place)
What do you have going on in August? Races? Vacations?
What was the best/worst about July for you?
