Happy July 4th! The first month of summer running is done and I had an awesome kick-off to non-race training. It’s so nice not to be worried about hitting paces or feeling guilty about not hitting my mileage for a week.
The biggest highlight of June for me was my first trail run! I loved it so much and I’m getting out for a second trail run this week. It’s a switch up from road running and a challenge. Plus, it gets me to slow down but still get in a heart pounding workout.
June running was also about getting acclimated to even hotter (and more humid) runs. Even running at 5 a.m. meant some 70+ degree runs with higher humidity. But I feel like I’m getting a little bit more used to it and it’s feeling a little bit more comfortable running in the morning. Still, my last run of June was pretty horrible with it being really humid and almost 80.
