Weight I have lost

June is Over

So with one week left, I figured out I could meet Sparkpeople's Goal of 1000 Exercise Minutes for June.
Some purists might disagree with me, because I count my warmup, run, cooldown, and stretch as exercise.  (And I'm for the Oxford Comma).

So this week I had 4 runs scheduled with the last one ending tomorrow. I have completed 3. Yes, I made it to a Thursday run!

Tuesday's run of 3 miles was 35:39. Oh yeah, you know I wanted to die.  I kept my thunder thighs going though.  Wednesday's run was 2 miles of 22:44.  Again, pushed myself.  Thursday, my thighs hurt so bad, I could barely walk.  I haven't felt this sore in awhile.  And my biceps were tired.  I wonder if I'm running with my arms differently...hmm.  I don't know.  Anyway I took it easy for 3 miles at 38:18.  Except when I think about it, it is a faster easy.  I used to run fast at 41 minutes for 3 miles.  I was happy if the treadmill was at 4.5mph.  Now I'm at 4.7 mph as a slow day.  Now if this weight would come off.

So for June.
Weightloss: 0.2 pounds (maybe a little too much beer in there)
Mileage on my legs: 64.49
Races: 1 10K with a PR, one Virtual 5K with a dog
Exercise Minutes: 1044

Let's see what July brings with a holiday, a weekend away, and a vacation!

It's always nice when you notice the affects of training. I don't usually find myself moving faster, just able to go longer.

YES on the Oxford comma. Hope you can squeeze in some early-morning runs to beat the heat this summer.
