It’s that time of month, where I share a quick recap of my fitness for the previous month. Overall, I had a decent month with my running. Total mileage: 39.97 but can we just call it an even 40? Close enough.
The one thing I let slide a bit last month was my Pilates practice. I stopped doing it for about a week, and then after that it was hard to get back into it consistently again. I know I mentioned that I really wanted to keep up a daily, consistent practice but instead of giving excuses, I’ll just focus on getting back to it again.
^^still a great running buddy…as long as he’s distracted
Here’s a breakdown of what each week actually looked like:
4 mi // 3 mi // 3.01 mi // 3.10 mi
4 mi // 2.75 mi // 3 mi
2.11 mi // 3 mi // 2 mi
3 mi // 3 mi // 4 mi
If you’re wondering what happened to my “long run”, it’s been holding steady at 4 miles. I really don’t consider that a long run (just a personal preference, 6+ mi is more like it) but for now, it’s where I’m at without pushing myself to train hard. I think once the weather cools down some, that’s when I’ll start pushing for more miles. Because I miss long runs, seriously.
My goal for September is to get back on track with Pilates at least a few times a week and hit 50 miles of running. As of this post, I don’t have any races on the radar but with the weather hopefully getting cooler in the next month I’m going to look around and see if anything catches my eye. I’d love to run a race with the stroller (which might be hard to find) just to see how I do. Since I’ve never raced that way before, it would be an interesting challenge. Either way, I’ll be sure to keep y’all posted.
How’s your fitness looking these days? I’d love to hear all about it.
