Greetings from Minnesota. We’ve had a sunny, breezy day to mark the arrival of June. Though you may not know it, June is also dairy month!
I suppose it’s because I live in a rural area, but June Dairy Month promotions are everywhere. It’s rather exciting to get free ice cream at the bank or a coupon at the grocery store and realize that I’m a part of this great dairy community. Have you seen any dairy month promos in your area?
I haven’t run a lot since the marathon, but it’s really more because of general busyness than anything. I’m happy to report that I don’t feel burnt out on running.
My legs still feel more sluggish than normal, but I did have a decent run in mid 9:00’s pace this morning that inspired some confidence. I’m hoping to do some shorter races throughout the summer, so I need to get back to some speedwork.
Summer mornings are a great time for track workouts, and I think I’ve got 400m and 800m repeats calling my name!
The details on May:
- 95.2 miles run
- 174.9 miles on my current shoes
I had hoped to crack 100 again this month, but with my easy taper due to knee worries I didn’t quite get there. I really haven’t put too much pressure on myself to run far post-marathon either. 4.3 miles has been my longest, but I’m planning for at least 6 this weekend.
In addition to being the start of dairy month, today is also National Running Day. Happy running day; I hope you got in your miles. 🙂
Is your summer race calendar filling up yet?
