The month with Tim’s first half marathon and my new 5K PR.
July mileage: 167. Highest monthly mileage ever. I took three rest days for the month.
Total for 2013: 928 miles. I am really surprised at how well I’ve been handling the mileage this year. Last year, I reached 1000 miles in November and that was after marathon training. This year, I have been more consistent with my running and the mileage has increased. I feel quite confident that I will reach my 1300 mile goal.
July long runs: A terrible 15 miler, 9 miles, 10 miles
Planks: Last month I ended with a 3:15. This month I managed to make it to 3:33 before collapsing in a shaking heap on my living room floor. I think I need to revamp the plan. Which is to say, I think I need a plan. Right now, I just kinda wing it and do a plank or two a few nights a week and try to max out around the end of the month. There are some plans out there and a dailymile friend suggested that I try to max out every 7-10 days. I will look into this. My progress has been slow.
How was your July?
