June was all about freaking out about Highlands Sky, then running it, then recovering from it, then feeling lost without a plan after it. That's about it.
On the last day of June, I broke out my bike. I didn't include that in my workout summary though. My husband and I rode 8.31 miles in 54 minutes...the slowness was mostly due to me. This is why you won't see me wanting to train for a triathlon anytime! My bike is a mountain bike that I got when I was in the 5th grade and only about half of the gears work. I'm incredibly uncomfortable on a bike and always fear I'm going to wreck which is the result of thoughts from many, many years ago. I was OK on a main road that had a huge shoulder but all of our hilly backroads that I frequent on foot? Well, I went about as fast on them as I do on foot for fear of a car either hitting me or me hitting something funny on or off the side of the road and then falling off the bike.
On the first day of July, I was a bit lazy. I attempted an evening run on Saturday after the morning bike ride but cut it very short at 4 miles. Normally, I don't run on Fridays but had gone to meet with a group Friday evening in some serious heat that involved a cool down in a local creek. I don't normally run more than 3 days in a row and think my continuous stream of running days was starting to catch up with me...along with the high temperatures. The plan was to wake up Sunday morning and get in some miles before picking up a shelter dog. Instead, I slept in and then picked up a shelter dog. We covered four very slow miles of walking and a little bit of running. This girl (Jazzy) loves the run walk combo and seems to know how to pace herself with it. We ran 2 miles out on the trail then turned around and I started walking thinking she probably needed to cool down a bit. After a couple of minutes of walking, she looked back at me and started jogging again. After a couple of minutes, she slowed to a walk for a minute or two and picked up the pace again. It was the funniest thing!
I seriously hope my motivation comes back this week because I really stocked up on my sleeping reserve over the weekend and need to get moving again!
