Monthly recap// May and June

June 29, 2015

May and June were busy months as I got used to a new schedule and figured out how to train around work. In May I celebrated my birthday at the beach, watched my sister get first place at her cross fit competition, celebrated a friends bachelorette party and wedding, had my sister at home for two weeks, and more! It was a fun month!

one of my birthday gifts- Lululemon duffle and running socks!

 At the wedding, I caught the bouquet! My sister and I ^^

In June I have received WOW cards at work, signed up for nursing school courses, registered for a half marathon, ran two 20 milers, and spent a day at SeaWorld. 

At the hospital there are WOW cards that we receive if someone notices we have done a good job. There are different prizes for different numbers. Such as two gets you two tickets to a movie, you get a free car wash at five, and at twelve you get a free massage. I have three so far and am saving up for that massage!

new Lululemon to train in!

Swiftly Tech Racerback- favorite running tank
Tracker Short II- super comfy for running and errands 

I had gift cards to Lululemon from my birthday and I found some new tanks and a pair of shorts. These are my new favorite shorts because they are longer than the speed shorts and fit looser around the quads. Plus, they are super cute on!

Training update: long runs

June 19, 2015

My long runs have been going great so far. I am running at a faster pace for the longer runs than even last season. The schedule of runs these past few weeks have looked like this:

10 miles @ 8:56 pace
15 miles @ 8:45 pace
20 miles @ 8:46 pace
10 miles @ 9:00 pace
18 miles @ 8:59 pace
20 miles @ 8:38 pace

I also have intervals during the runs at marathon goal pace. I have a half marathon next weekend which I am hoping to PR at especially since I have trained well over a half marathon plan. I am six weeks out from my marathon (which I didn't realize until I looked at the calendar today!!) and can't wait to keep training to see how I do!
