Look around, it’s July already! Time flies…
With the break of the month, I have broken the 500km milestone since I started running in November last year. That sounds quite impressive, doesn’t it?
June marked the start of my 20-weeks-long half-marathon training, and here is a short summary of the month:
- a total of 14 runs, in 2 countries!
- one race (5km in Fribourg, Switzerland)
- a total of 86.5 km
- Progressive runs are FUN and generally great, but running in the heat isn’t…
Through July I will increase my mileage and work a bit on the speed in the balanced training phase of the plan. The heat will make it a challenge, but I determined to get the work done.
At the moment it is very, very hot (36°C or 97°F), and, so far, I have failed my morning get-up-and-run-before-it-gets-too-warm two out of two times. It is so hot races get cancelled, so please remember: drink plenty of water, use sunscreen, and wear a hat.
This weather looks beautiful, but it can be dangerous!
