June Challenges

Here we are in June…yes, two weeks in but oh well! Better late than never! I didn’t want to start any new challenges until after my half marathon and rest! I wanted to really jump in last week but I had pulled something in my foot during the run, and knew I needed to really rest well. So that’s what I did! And gained 2 lbs as well.. Ugh πŸ‘ŽπŸ˜–

Here are my plans for June:

Half marathon training
Training for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon official commenced yesterday! I will be following the same training plan as I did before, and will be really paying attention to my time vs last time!
I am excited to start again, but not excited about running in this summer heat! My goal for this race is 2:20, 5 mins faster than the last and 10mins faster than my last goal!

I know that hydration is going to be key, and also early morning (yeah right) or later in the evening runs will have to happen!

21 day fix:
Yesterday also started my second round of 21 day fix. As I mentioned here, I didn’t get the results I wanted so I an to do much better this time around! Here is my week 1 meal plan

After I created it, I forgot some key things happening this week that will make me have to alter some days! But, I plan to start tomorrow by posting my meals and workouts so you guys can keep me accountable! Just more me now!
Races:
So, I haven’t talked much about this race cause it kinda snuck up on me, but my first post half marathon race is..

Knowing that the race is t-minus 4 days, I’m starting to get FREAKED OUT!! Two of my awesome girlfriends are running it with me! We tried to run this race last year, but a big storm came and it got canceled! We were not happy!

What am I most terrified of!!?? The Arctic Enema! Don’t know what it is? Check this out:

I don’t do cold!!!😰😰

Summer Slam 5k

I have another 5K on the 22nd to do! I normally run around the course it is held at so that’s nice! It would be nice to beat my PR of 28:23, but I would really have to push myself! I would like to be sub30, so we will see how it turns out!
