Happiness is . . .

two kinds of ice cream, sure, but I'd settle for just a day without rain. Yes. For me, happiness would be a day without rain. Not a drought-style rainless period, just a day or two of no rain. I don't know if I can even remember what rainless days are like. We seem to have rain every single day here. Yesterday was beautiful, sunny and warm in the morning but by 3 in the afternoon it was an all-out thunderstorm. Pouring rain.

So, I guess that is my July request: Less rain. July, if you can deliver, I will love you forever.

And now let me look back at June.

June stats:

Running (miles): 70
Cross training (sessions): 13

  • 30 Day Shred, level 2: 8
  • 30 Day Shred, level 3: 2
  • No More Trouble Zones: 2
  • Some other exercise on demand thing: 1
Wow. My June mileage was way down from May but my cross training was way up. I'm not too worried about the balance shift because I had a whole week+ when I thought the world was ending in the form of my self-diagnosed runner's knee. I took several days off from running and that healed me right up so I guess it wasn't runner's knee after all.

I'm looking forward to more running in July and some vacations. Speaking of which, posting will be light over the next few days because we're heading to the beach for the holiday weekend. Yay!

Oh! I almost forgot: Happy Canada Day to all of you Canadians!!!

I'm with you. I'm so sick of trying to dodge the rain to get my runs in. I'm used to droughts here during the summer, this is crazy!

Gee, are you in New England? I feel like we haven't seen the sun in MONTHS! My sneakers are never dry, all the trails are so muddy, and everything is just moist!!! What I wouldn't give for a few days of sunny runs...

kara said...

Hey - we did the same mileage : )
I always run less in the summer - too warm out.
Enjoy your stay at the beach.
PS> I actually have a race RIGHT ON THE BEACH (Oregon Coast) this month.

Here there's no rain but there are 100 degree heat days. Probably until September-ish. Great fun.

I hope july treats you well and eases up on the rain!

I hope you can at least escape the rain at the beach, have fun!!!

Hope the rest of summer is sunny! Though after a couple of days of 90degrees, I am ready for some pleasanter weather!

Roisin said...

Feel free to send the rain my way.

Vacations are always nice to look forward to. Hope you have lots of fun running during July.

Heather said...

Way to get the cross training in . . . I've only done the 30 day shred once in the last month.

Have a great long weekend!

HEATHER said...

I'll trade you a few days of that rain for a few days of this heat!! It's been awful here :(

Abby said...

Totally feel you on the weather... It's finally been nice for the last two days and I've been in heaven.

Have a nice holiday weekend!

Quix said...

Have a great holiday! We are having some rain today, and I love it. It's a nice break from the 105 degrees it was for the last 2 weeks. Hopefully we can have some cooler temps here and you can have less rain so we can both do more running!

aron said...

great job on the month!!! have a great holiday :)

Mel-2nd Chances said...

Thanks for the Happy Canada Day! :D It's been raining off and on all week, so hoping your plea for a less rainy July works here too!

Also, another thank you for the comment on my post today... i'm REALLY enjoying the lemonade!!!

J said...

Enjoy the holiday weekend! I am sure that July will be hot and steamy like usual with very little rain!

joyRuN said...

I love summer rain. I do! I'm sick/twisted - what can I say?

I refuse to look at my June mileage. It sucked big time, & I'm hoping to redeem with July :)

lindsay said...

nice stats - that's a lot of cross training!

i like the summer rain, as long as it doesn't interfere with my running needs of course!

have a great weekend at the beach!

I'm new to your blog and really enjoy your musings about running. Hopefully you get a little less rain in July. We are hoping for the same up here in the great white north, but I'm getting use to running in the rain.
