June Progress Report
June is gone, it was the fastest month ever with everything I had to do. Thank goodness summer is here and things have calmed down somewhat. I was truly starting to feel a little insane!
1. Run at least one race a month.
I ran one race this month, my Half Marathon. But this still puts me ahead on this because I have several months with two races each.
2. Run at least 2 10Ks this year.
This was done in April and May. I am starting to think of running another now that the distance seems so manageable. Maybe I should up this to three or four? They’re hard to find though. We’ll see.
3. Run a half marathon.
Done, nine days ago! I am still very happy I did it and already thinking of another one, because most any other one would be easier. This one had hills, it was in the heat (although I know it wasn’t as hot as it could have been). I don’t know if I will do one this fall because that means starting training again very soon and frankly I am looking for a few weeks of running because I want to, not because I have to.
4. Finally reach my goal weight.
Totally stagnant here. I am maintaining just fine but not losing. I am starting to wonder if where I am is the happy place? I feel good, healthy, and I fit in most of my “skinny” clothes from when I was nearly ten pounds lighter. I know this is because of all of the exercise I do now that I didn’t do then. I’m smaller, even though I weigh more.
Still would love to be down at least another five. And it is doable, I just need to be serious about it. Sigh.
5. Am going to get back into the 30 day challenges now that the half is over. This month I am doing the Beachbody Challenge. It seemed appropriate. I’ll update on how that goes in my weekly posts.
Overall I have pretty much hit most of my goals for 2014, and it’s only July 1. I’m kind of amazed by it. I need to add some new things in the mix to keep it interesting. But I feel really good, in better shape than probably I have been in my whole life. So even though I’d like to lose more weight, I feel pretty good about where I am right now.
