june 2009

june 2009 - month #3 in kentucky. i was initially anticipating some serious chill time at the end of the month but my position at work was extended so back to ky it is. took advantage of having easy runs on the schedule and slowed down to avoid dying in the heat (ran in 90+ degrees a few times). running in such warm temps (80+) has been great training mentally because i know i can handle any temp and don't allow myself to wimp out of a run because it's "too hot".

total mileage: 200.19 (almost double june 2008!)
time spent running: 29:31:47
avg pace: 9:11/mile
days off: 3
avg resting hr: 52.33
avg max hr: 179.88
pushups: 1,113


oh yeah, j also popped the question. i said why not.

  27. WAHOO 200 miles in a month! Oh nice ring too ;-)

  28. Hey, I just found your blog. I love two things already: the quote about small things accumulating, and that you love dreaming big. Marathon running (specifically, qualifying for Boston) started as nothing more than a HUGE dream. And now I've run 5 of them, and Boston is going to happen this year, I know it!

    Looking forward to reading more.
