For someone supposedly building up strength after an injury, my monthly mileage for July isn’t all that impressive.
Lower than June.
So, what do I have to say for myself?!
Well, I did take a couple of days off in the last week of the month, on the advice of the brilliant folk at decodednc. Jeevan suggested I should work other muscles, rather than those used in running & walking, so I suppose a few days with no walking & running count against my monthly tally.
I know it’s not just the mileage numbers that count, but I am trying to build back strength and the ability to be on my feet for ever-increasing amounts of time.
So I shall try & run longer this month: perhaps less often but longer. Though long runs are not an easy thing in the very unpleasant weather here at the moment – very hot & very humid – because if you’re not out of the door by 5.30 latest, you’ll never get 2/3 hours in without dying in the heat.
Yeah, yeah, yeah – excuses, I know.
Anyway, onwards & upwards for August 🙂
