Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian followers!!!
I finished off the month of June with a 4.77 km run. While I was really hoping to punch out 5 km, I set out around 6pm and it was still so freakin’ hot that I just couldn’t do it. I stopped at one point to grab a drink from a fountain near a park and was devastated to find it bone dry. The few seconds I stopped, I could feel the heat coming off me and my head started to hurt. I turned for home and by the time I arrived in my driveway, I looked like I’d just come out of the shower, only I was dripping sweat. I got into the blissful air-conditioned house and drank a half bottle of Gatorade. Thankfully that seems to have prevented the heat-induced migraine.
Overall, June was a great month of running. I am feeling pretty good and injury free, thank goodness. I inched a few hundred meters closer to my 10 km goal and I think if all goes well, I will reach it sometime this month. July is going to be busy with work as I am covering for my colleagues the first two weeks, then we are off for a week to our annual cottage getaway. I’m not sure how much running I’ll get while at the cottage, it’s pretty hilly and very buggy, so we shall see how that goes. I am hoping to keep up my 3-4 runs per week though.
When I look at my mileage for June, it’s astounding to me that I ran about 64 km. It’s the most I’ve run in a month! I’m quite excited to see how I will do in July.
