June 2017 Training Report

By Lifeasarunningmom @RunningMom6
June 2017 Training ReportI know July is more than halfway over but I did not want to skip doing my June training report just because analysis was delayed due to vacation, etc. I also intend to write up a vacation running report as I worked hard doing those weeks off from work and am recovering now from the increased time on the cement running.
My June goals from my Busy Mom Marathon Training Plan were to run 40 miles a week and to nail a 16 mile run day.
How did I do?
Well, I ran a total of 145 miles in June and since I love numbers that averages out to 4.83 miles a day or 33.83 miles per week. Bummer! I fell short of my weekly mileage goal but was up from running 21.9 miles per week in May so all in all, I am happy. My longest run was 13.5 miles but I had multiple double digit run days so again, I am happy because in May I had no double digit run days.
May was a tough month for me and I really did hope to bounce back in June but didn't quite get to my original plan but I am still celebrating my successes. I will not alter my plan but understand if I continue to fall under the curve some due to where I am now on the curve.
My vacation training was intense with Texas heat and increased time on the cement so I am taking a few days off right now to refresh and to compensate for any over training symptoms I may be experiencing. With that being said, I remain hopeful for an amazing month of July training. Stay tuned for the vacation training and July training reports.
But since my training is more than running these days, I put together a chart of active minutes that logs my running minutes and cross training minutes. I feel this is another good metric to see where I stand because sometimes I am running less because I am cross training more.
Since June marks the middle of the year and the first time I can report this data, I am going to report my active minutes for all of 2017, month by month.
  • January 1,150
  • February 1,444
  • March 2,019
  • April 2,757
  • May 1,606
  • June 2,225

With the second half of June having barely any cross training time (only 63 minutes), I am very happy with what these numbers represent even if my overall mileage did not hit the targets I hoped to hit.
In addition, the end of June brought me to 628 miles in 2017 and 8,387 streak miles.

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for the new product Daily Sunshine that can help darling daughter meet her daily protein and nutrition needs. This is a win-win because she likes to be like Mommy with a shake and doesn't like to eat protein much. I just ordered her a sampler pack to see what flavor she prefers and got her a cute and functional shaker cup of her own to take her shake on the go. I love the design of this cup!
