30 Miles in 30 Days Update: I got lazy

Apparently, when I see I'm about to pass a goal, I get lazy.  This explains so much in my life, by the way.

In the past seven days, I've done exactly one workout. And that was yesterday.  But at least it was a run, so I did achieve my 30-mile goal for the month.

Here's my updated June mileage ...

June 1  -- 4.55 miles
June 3  -- 3.11 miles
June 5  -- 3.22 miles
June 8 --  2.68 miles
June 10 -- 3.06 miles
June 12 -- 2.08 miles
June 14 -- 5.00 miles
June 17 --  3.1 miles
June 19 -- 3.12 miles
June 26 -- 3.00 miles
Total  --  32.92 miles

I'm still determined to conquer 5.5 miles this week.  I wanted to do it yesterday, but my body just wasn't having it.  I guess that's what I get for taking a week off from exercise.

Next, I'm still searching for a July fitness challenge.

Should I just increase the mileage?  Or should I work on something else completely?

Any suggestions?


  1. I like the mileage challenge and might adopt it. Maybe in August...

    I track cardio minutes a lot, either through a class, treadmill, or elliptical.
    Before I joined a gym, I used to challenge myself to a ridiculous amount of lunges. What about yoga through online videos or something? I know a lot of people try to do yoga everyday for a certain amount of time.

  3. I'm very unhappy with how my arms look in sleeveless/strapless clothing so I'm going to spend July focusing on that. I've been trolling Pinterest looking for different arm workouts I can incorporate. We shall see how it goes. I'm going to measure on July 1st and then measure again August 1st and see what kind of results I get.

  4. Hmmm, maybe try something different so you don't get bored with it? Good job on reaching your mileage goal tho! If you don't want to do something different, up it for sure to challenge yourself!

  5.'ve done better than me!! I think I might do that for August...because I said I would for July and obviously that hasn't happened so far lol.
