August in Review

Today's 6 mile run brought my August training to a close.  August also brought my return to work so I am back to running before the sun rises daily.  All of thsoe pre-dawn runs helped me set yet another monthly mileage PR---180.21 miles which puts me 7.78 miles away from 1,000 miles for the year. 
180.21--  running miles
0-- elliptical miles
8-- bike miles
0-- spinning class miles
188.21-- total miles
0 minutes-- rope skipping
157.4-- weight as of August 31, 2011

Current 2011 Stats
992.22-- running miles
17.8-- elliptical miles
15.86-- bike miles
55.8-- spinning class miles
1081.68-- total miles
1 hour and 55 minutes-- rope skipping

August turned out the be a pretty good month overall.  I had an outstanding 19 mile run one weekend.  I felt strong the entire time and finished with a great pace.  One week later I had a pretty unpleasant 20 mile run as the moment I realized I had forgotten my Garmin I pretty much set myself up mentally for a less than stellar run.  In the end, I learned a valuable lesson.

Bring it on September!
Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!
