August Recap and Thoughts of the Future

So August... was a pretty awesome month! Ending with 4... days of rest haha. I'll run tomorrow, I promise!

So... recap!
  • Miles Ran - 141 (+4 from July, or 3% increase)
  • Strength Training Sessions - 2 ... yes... that's TWO. No wonder my knee is aching. Time to get back to those dang physical therapy exercises!
  • Unplanned Rest Days: 2 (missed a 10 miler early in the month and an 8 miler yesterday)

Other Highlights:
  • First Back-to-Back Long Run (10 miles both days) - felt great!
  • 18 miler and a 20 miler, both were good
  • Hit my all time high for weekly (40mpw) and monthly (141mpm) running mileage (even WITH missing those 2 days)
  • Did day ONE of the 100 pushup challenge hahahahaha... yeah I guses I wasn't that dedicated.
Fitness Goals For September:
  • Strength Train 4x/month (Mondays?) - Including Pushup Challenge
  • Yoga 4x/month (Sundays?)
  • Miles ~ 152
  • First 15k Ever (Sept 24th)
Other Goals For September:
  • Use my vacation as a time to really focus on my body - and treating it healthily.
    • Focusing on Fruits/Veggies
    • Focusing on "whole foods" as much as possible
    • Focusing on WATER
Don't know why it's so hard for me to drink water. When I really focus on drinking more water for at least 2-3 days I notice SUCH a difference, I become less bloated, and I just feel miles better. **sigh** If only I could keep up with it!

I'll leave you with this... my favorite running song right now. Listen to it, you'll want to go run :D
