June recap.

After a stellar May, during which I logged the most mileage so far this pregnancy, June was a bit of a bust. Sure, I had to recover from a rockin' 5K and my 40th birthday. And, yes, I had a big deadline to meet and a vacation to prep for and go on. But, hrrm . . . the miles were lower than expected. The proof is in the stats.

June stats:

Running (miles): 48.4
Cross-training (sessions): 5

Not even 50 miles. Oh, well. I'm pleased with the cross-training, especially when I consider that I had only one such session in May. Also, when I look back to what I was thinking a month ago, I expected my mileage to decrease and I figured I would be walking most of them and not really running much.

Well, I'm still running. I'm doing a lot of walking, for sure, but I'm still running and June did include two 5K races. So, there's that to be proud of. We'll see what happens in July -- so far I've logged a whopping 5.2 miles so I'll need to get a move on if I'm going to get close to my June mileage! Since we're in the midst of a heat wave here, the treadmill is going to become my new-found friend this week. High heat and pregnancy just don't mix!

OK, everyone, I hope you all have a great week! I'm trying to catch up on blogs a bit because I missed a ton while I was away. Oh, and be sure to check my giveaway site this week because I have a super-duper cool big giveaway coming!

I'm so happy that you're able to get out there and run as well as walk. That's going to keep you fit and happy for sure!

You rock! Almost 50 miles ran in a month is totally a worthy effort, pregnant or not! I'm not even logging that much (though to be fair I'm logging over 50 miles some weeks with the biking so I can't be too hard on myself...right?).
