I'm back! And July wrap-up.

Hello! I'm back from a great vacation. Lots of kids, lots of junk food, lots of laughs. Some sun, some mosquitoes, some really, really good lobster. And only a little running but that's OK -- I had a good week.

Now, I'm back until tomorrow when we head south again to visit three of my sisters-in-law -- one in Maryland and two in Virginia -- before ending up in Richmond for a family wedding. So, I'll have another light posting and commenting week. Hopefully, though, I'll run a bit more than I did last week.

Yes, I hardly ran last week. Less than eight miles, in fact. Although, I will say that they were eight refreshing miles so it almost seemed like more.

On that note, here's a look at the month that was . . .

July stats:

Running (miles): 77
Cross training (sessions): 6

The first three weeks of July were terrific. I ran about 23 miles and did two cross training sessions each week. Very consistent. Then I went on vacation and only ran eight miles and didn't cross train at all except for a walk or two and a little kayaking that was cut short by a huge storm that rolled in to town.

Proof:


So, we'll see what this week brings. So far, it is bringing sunshine and I'm pretty pleased about that!

Have a great week, everyone!

It's fine to have a light-running week every now and then. I'll be happy if I run eight miles when I'm at the beach!

Wave to me when you're in Maryland :)

Enjoy the rest of your vacation! That light running was probably just what you needed for a good relaxing but not totally lazy week!

Glad you had a great vacation! You're July sounds a lot like mine - good first two weeks and then it just fell apart. Here's to a better August!

You can't make up for vacation fun but you can always make up for running by just running more...sounds like you had a fun time!

It can be tough to remain consistent in the summer. You still had some good miles!

Have a great time on Vacation Part Two.
