I meant to post this yesterday but didn’t have time to get back to it after work. Makes it a little less exciting, but better late than never.
While it’s technically not day 30 for me, it is the last day of Juneathon! I (kinda) made it!
I won’t lie – the numbers for week 4 weren’t that pretty, mostly given my weekend fail. But I did get out this morning and pushed myself to get in a good last jog. My 2 mile workout this morning was a lot like the one I did last week – I walk more than I do on my 1-1.5 mile jaunts, which is frustrating, but I know I’m also making progress. It was a good run to end on, and surprisingly I doubt it will be my last run of the summer. I kind of got hooked on the jogging thing, although we’ll see if/how it progresses without Juneathon.
Anywho, without further adieu…
Day 22: 1.75
Day 23: 2.1
Day 24: 0.5
Day 25-27: Nada
Day 28: 1.5
Day 29: Nada
Day 30: 2 miles
GRAND TOTAL FOR JUNEATHON: 51.6 miles
I wish I would have had a more successful ending, but the way I see it, I had a an 87% success rate and jogged more than I have in years (and to clarify, that doesn’t mean I haven’t worked out. I was just pro-elliptical/bike/zumba and anti-jogging). This month gave me a very different workout structure that definitely shook up my routine and probably fitness levels. It was undoubtedly a pain at times, but I don’t think I would hesitate to sign up for it again.
It will, however, be nice to not be guilted into working out everyday, particularly with workouts I did half-heartedly just to log the miles. And I’m sure it will be nice to read blog posts about something other than Juneathon. Now it’s time to get creative…
