Summer officially was in full swing this month! I was done with all my large FCA events this summer and was able to take some time to relax and catch up on other work.
What I am drinking: coffee with Almond milk French vanilla creamer
What I am eating: turkey bacon and eggs
Races I’ve ran this month: None – still training for Project 1:59
Races I am training for: SeaWheeze Half Marathon on August 12th
This training cycle I have been working with Coach Kristy from Run the Long Road Coaching. She has helped me stay focused on my speed workouts so I would feel comfortable at my projected half marathon pace as well as taught me I was running to many days in a row.
I love it when I get to run with friends! So thankful my friend Jenn joined me for a hilly 8 miles as I went on to finish the full 13 one Saturday morning.
Books I’m reading: I finished reading Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham while we were on vacation.
I also want to start How Bad Do You Want It? it has been a really popular book amongst my Runner Girl Gang on Instagram so I of course needed to join the bandwagon. I’m not like that all the time but it seemed like everyone was loving on this book so I just felt I needed the push as well.
Events we celebrated: The 4th of July! We took Lola to a local town picnic and she wore a cute little hat and got tons of pets from all those around her.
Our 2 year wedding anniversary!
We were in Cancun and were able to relax all day at the pool reading! We went out to a nice dinner at the resort.
Where we traveled: We went to Cancun for a 5 day vacation/getaway.
Our plans for the rest of the summer: We are flying to Vancouver, British Coloumbia to run the Lululemon SeaWheeze Half Marathon which is the race I am hoping to break a sub-2 half marathon!
How was your July? How is your summer going? Anything planned for the end of the summer?
