That is the number of kilometers I ran in July... I am thoroughly happy with that odd number.

I didn't set a July running goal and just made a plan to get out as much and as often as I could.  And I did and this is the most I have run in a month so far.

44.45 km in May

57.2 km in June

72.44 km in July


Sunday we did a speedy 5.25 km and used the 9/1 run/walk method.  We ran the first 2.4 km in 17 minutes which seemed very easy ... the last time we did it in 16.5 minutes and I was sucking air.  Can 30 seconds over that distance really make that much difference? 

This time the whole thing just seemed to be over with so quickly, and I actually forgot about the 3rd walk break and we didn't do it till I checked my watch after about 12 minutes.

W3 R39 @ 9/1 W3
stretch 5 minutes

Back on board, a new smoothie... banana, vanilla unsweetened Almond Breeze, and some canned mandarin oranges.  Mmmmm.

Will have to give August some serious thought.

  1. YAY YOU!! Well done! You're logging those miles AND eating some great food:) I love the pic of the smoothie. Maybe I need to start drinking those for protein boosts and recovery, especially since I'm in week 4 of marathon training. Any suggestions? Let me know.


Love it when you leave me a comment!
