It was also great to have a nice run after the painful run I had yesterday. It was painful mentally more than anything. It was my first tempo run and I tried to keep my pace steady for the whole 7 miles- I was able to do it at a 7:43/mile, but it was K.I.L.L.E.R. I kept making up excuses in my brain for why it was so hard- 'It's so hot',or 'I didn't sleep well last night', or 'I'm just so thirsty.' Do you find yourself making up excuses sometimes? I'm hoping the tempo run won't kick my butt like this every week- I felt like I was racing, only this time I didn't win anything or walk away with a new T-shirt.
June was a good month for me. After struggling through May, it was nice to have a month where I felt so good and could really enjoy myself out there on the road. The stats are as follows:
I'm excited to see where the next month will take me! I'm hoping to bump up my average speed to 7.0 mph :)
