# of runs: 20! Considering how much distance I got in, I'm very surprised to see how many days I took off.
# of runs started before 5am: 11. I hope I can keep this up through the winter.
Races: 1 Pacing the Midsummer Night's Run, 30k three-hour group
Highlight run of the month: The midsummer run of course!
I had a lot of not-so-good runs as well, including an attempt to run 28k before work which resulted in a huge stomach upset and only 12k run:
I didn't give up on getting some distance in that weekend. Even though we were in Ottawa visiting family, I went out on Sunday morning (with my husband's blessing) for a short 10k run which turned into 10 miles on the Trans-Canada Trail. I did this run with only 8oz of water and was perfectly fine. I could have run another 10k, I'm sure.
I continued to run my long runs with Sam and basically chased her through tempo portions of the long runs per the Daniel's running formula. Thank goodness I have someone crazy enough to join this challenge with me. The weather this month was difficult. At the top of the month, it cooled off and I was loving my perfect running temperatures of about 12c. Then, it got humid. And sticky. And hot. And humid. It was gross. Even in a gym with A/C
Total Time Spent Running: 24h59m15s
Average Pace per KM: 0:05:51
Not too bad for 11 days off, stomach troubles and HUMIDITY! September brings another pacer race (Milton Half Marathon on September 15th - 2hr continuous) and the build of confidence.
I need to get some swagger back into these bones. I'm hoping the next few weeks brings that in spades.
