May Miles and Goal Check In

๐ŸŽถSpring is almost over and the summer’s come and the days are gettin’ long๐ŸŽถ

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, anyone? ๐ŸŽฃ

The days are certainly gettin’ long here in Kansas! The sun sets around 8:30 pm this time of year, but full dark doesn’t really happen until around 9. Summer is definitely almost here! Yuck. Summer running is my least favorite. ๐Ÿฅต But on the bright side, at least I have a treadmill for days when doing hard workouts outside would be unbearable! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜†

Anyway, May was an interesting month. I got sick, had a 5k race, picked up a new sport, and traveled to Minnesota. Plus all of our usual daily/summer activities like caring for chickens and all of the other animals. Planting and now tending the garden. And yard work of course. It’s a lot to jam into 4 weeks. ๐Ÿ˜‚

So needless to say my running mileage has suffered a little bit since April (44.32 miles. Another weird month) and A LOT since March (87.92 miles. A very good month! ๐Ÿ™‚). This month’s grand total comes to 39.78 miles.

Hahaha yeah, I’m not too happy about that. But life happened as it sometimes does. There was really nothing I could do about that terrible cold I got. It took me FOREVER to get over that. And I picked family time over running time while we were in Minnesota. A very good choice that I was willing to make. Sometimes you need to make sacrifices in life for running. Other times you need to make sacrifices in running for life. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

The rest of my goals were kind of all over the place as well.

Honestly I’ve been eating like shit pretty much all month. I’ve been journaling off and on, and this definitely wasn’t the best month as far as my step goal goes.

But now for the most part all of the craziness that has been the last few months should be calming down. Now it’s time to buckle down and GET SHIT DONE! I’m ready to spend the next month or so building my mileage back up and then start training for Operation Two Half Marathons In Two Days: Take Two later in July! Bring. It. On!! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป

Wishing you a very happy June!
