Apparently I let May pass without a recap. GASP! I think that was a first.
It was probably because it wasn’t my favorite month in the world, especially when it started. But now that I can look back on it, I realize it was still a good month running aside and there were some positive things about taking some downtime from running. I guess it’s true what they say about hindsight being 20/20.
So May. My lowest monthly mileage I have had since I started running back in February 2008 with 36.2 miles.
Even if there wasn’t a lot of running in May, there was plenty of other great parts.
I got to see my friends… a lot of them!
I slowed down and remembered that running wasn’t the only thing in life.
I took advantage of my downtime with extra time with family and friends.
I took mini vacations both to the mountains and to the coast.
I got to start running again! See Aron, it wasn’t that bad.
Now onto the month that somehow is over already… June.
June is always a special month in our house for obvious reasons.
This June was extra special.
On top of that I made a real return to running and have been soaking up every single second since.
I finished off June with 14 miles on the trails to total 150.6 miles for the month! Not a bad comeback month if you ask me.
I am very much looking forward to July and all the fun it brings, both in and out of my running shoes.
