June 30. We are just getting into the ugly hot here in Montana. By ugly hot I mean miserable and in the 90s. July and August are generally just hot. The first part of June was great, lots of perfect weather days and time spent outside.
I discovered I can still sorta do this
My June went pretty good as far as running goes. I didn't keep track of how many miles I ran, or what workouts I did. I found after half marathon training it was nice to just relax and run what I wanted. I did start adding in hill repeats towards the middle of the month in preparation for the Northwest Passage Ragnar in July.
Kohl's sent me a Fitbit a couple weeks ago and I haven't decided how I feel about wearing it... it basically told me what I already know. I am very active. I easily get my 10,000 steps a day.
I have no desire to track my hydration, food eaten or sleep. It seems like a lot of work. I tried to do all three at first but quickly lost interest. I already know I don't sleep good most of the time and I eat a lot. I could see using it if I wanted to lose weight, but nah!
I do like that the battery lasts all week before I need to recharge it although I am annoyed I apparently did not recharge it fully and it was dead Monday morning for my run. This meant my run wasn't included on my step count so I didn't wear it all day, which throws off my count for the week. Annoying.
For now I will keep wearing it, I do find the step count motivating, so really for me it is a fancy pedometer.
I ran one race in June, a 10k with a personal worst. Guess my lack of structure on the running front did not pay off there. I have one race coming up in July.. just the Ragnar! From here until school starts it seems like every weekend is booked. As much fun as all that stuff is going to be I kind of like having free weekends too!
I am participating in Fit Approach's 1 Million Minutes and am currently sitting at 502 minutes! Not to bad. Most of it of course is running.
One of my current obsessions is Inknburn running clothes.... so hooked. I love the bright colors and unique designs, not to mention they are comfy and flattering. I originally was just looking for a pair of shorts to match my Team Beef tank, and now I have a bunch of InknBurn and think it well worth the price.
See, super cute!
What is one of your current obsessions? How was your June?
