Slumptastic July

Ok so don't get my wrong. All of July wasn't a slump. After all I started out the month with a random, mostly unplanned 10k then had the Color run mid month, then a nice long 8 miler on the Rails to Trails. You might notice a pattern- these were all weekend happenings. During the week at has been a huge struggle for me to get out of bed and going. Don't get me wrong, I think about running and love how it makes me feel but yet this doesn't seem to be enough to get my stupid butt out of my cozy bed.

That being said, I did get a nice 7 miler in on Tuesday afternoon. I had to work all weekend and got Monday and Tuesday off. I was busy with lots of things during my days off and a long run was on the to-do list. It wasn't the best fueled run and therefore wasn't the greatest run ever, but I got out there and I was happy.

Thursday I finally made it back to a Treadmill Thursday sesh and killed it. Ran for 30 minutes at 9:13 min/miles. Pretty impressed with myself. The last trail run, we ran the 4th mile at 9:15 and I thought I was going to die. So for me to run this pace for a full 30 minutes was a challenge but I felt closer to GREAT than DEAD and that is a fact.

Gorgeous view that greeted me when I left work/working out. A nice reminder that life is still beautiful even if people do some craptastic things and some people are just craptastic. 

Hope you all have a fantastic Friday and a wonderfully active weekend. I plan on a long run and hopefully enjoying the outdoors. Summer will be gone before we know it!

What are your plans for the weekend???
