Today is rate your month... can I give it a big fat F? Unless I can rate my goal of taking time off. Then it's a 10. I did do some prehab during the month, and I saw my chiropractor last week. She did have to do some work, and said my hips were tight. I'm working on stretching and getting that lacrosse ball into the hip crevices to work on those tight spots.
Now that I'm getting back on the workout wagon, I can get back into my routine. My goal is to work up to 3 to 4 miles before my cruise in 47 days (!). While training does kick off the weekend I leave for Alaska, I don't want it to consume me. I have 3 excursions booked, which will keep me busy. I think consistent 4 mile runs on the weekends will be a really good base to kick things off after the cruise.
The trick will now be navigating the summer weather. Since I just had my first run since my race, I need to figure out the whole running in the heat thing. I don't want to be confined to my treadmill, and yet I know there will be some days I'll need to use it. Thursday is forecasted to hit 98 degrees. With the strength of the sun, it'll be quite warm that day. Since I work from home Tuesdays, I'm considering getting my runs in early morning, before the heat settles in. Since I run around my neighborhood, it'll be easy to get out the door and back.
