June Monthly Recap

The month of June was a little out of control for me. I didn't really set any particular goals except to survive and that I did for the most part.  My body is having lots of aches and pains, and what I like to call if I go to the Dr. its an injury. If I can wait it out then it won't be. :)

A quick review of June:

We went to a wedding

Started ChaLean Extreme

Seattle RnR Weekend Fun
Ending the month with the Foam Fest 5K

I am on track to reach all of my goals for 2012, here is a quick recap on those:
Running Goals 
  • Run 4 Half Marathons - 4 down - Race Recap's - GOAL REACHED
  • Try a new distance - SGK 3-Day walk in November 2012
  • Run 12 Races Total - 8 down - 4 to go - Race Recap's
  • Year of the PR -work on PRing in 5K, 10K and Half - PR - 5KSt. Patricks Day Dash PR - Need to work on that half...but not right now.

Where does these put me for July?
  • Not to injury my ankle
  • Complete ChaLean Extreme 4x a week, I am going to have to skip some of the workouts as my ankle cannot handle it. Plan to stick to the Burn DVDs and Abs for now
  • Run/Walk See Jane Run Half as a training run for 3-day walk
  • Lose 5lbs or more if it wants to come off.
  • Run more miles then last year  - I ran 31 miles in July of 2011
Besides that I don't have any other runs scheduled for July or August. I was going to participate in Ragner, but decided against it for a variety of reasons. One day I will do a relay, but not this month.

How was June? Any big goals for July?


  1. can't wait to hear / see results from Chalene Extreme... sounds challenging but I bet its a GREAT workout :) Great june

  2. Great job with June and doing so well with all of your goals! My June was pretty good, one 10k and I am hoping July and its MARATHON goes even better!

  3. yeah, girl! good job! i should go look up what my 2012 goals were. i don't even remember. bleh.

  4. love how you word "5 pounds or more if it wants to come off! too funny and true!

  5. What a great month! Looks like the foam run was fun:)

  6. You're doing amazing on your 2012 goals. Congrats!!! I need to look at mine as well & figure out what I signed up for. ;-) Goals for july - stay on track with training & weight loss even though I have a bunch of vacations coming up. I'm doing a half in August & Hood to Coast, so July is going to be a serious training month for me.

  7. Very, very impressive, Jen! Keep up the good work - you are awesome!

  8. Love to see you are still on track with your goals. I'm sure not doing Ragner will benefit you in the long run, like you say one day just not today. Good luck and keep the momentum going.

  9. Good luck with your July goals! It sounds like it will be another successful month for you!

  10. Awesome job with your goals! That foam run looks SO fun. I must do it sometime!

  11. Keep it up! I think it is wonderful that your primary goals are driven by races and mileage - that's the way to to achieve and maintain the results you're looking for! Soon you can change your Blog title from "Runner, Maybe?" to "Runner, Definitely" :-)

  12. June was full of fun things for ya, and lots of goals reached! awesome month and thanks for the motivation! that foam race looks like SO much fun!!! I'm coming next year! Ha!
