June Running Update

tucson hikeJune Running/Hiking Update:  This past month, I ran, hiked and cycled a total of 60.6 miles. Normally I’ve been averaging close to 70 miles strictly running, but with the extreme weather, I’ve tried to go to the gym more often and switching up my exercises. This past month, we also traveled to The Grand Canyon and I hiked in my city and surrounding locations such as Sedona and Tumamoc Hill in Tucson (picture to the left), which I hope to do an entry about soon.

According to Runkeeper, I had a total of 60.6 miles completed. My average pace was 13:41.
I completed 22 activities. I burned 6,457.7 calories. I elevation climbed 1,599.5 feet.
I spent 16:2 hours doing some sort of activity.

Although the total number isn’t what I would have liked to achieve, I’m happy that despite the heatwave we’ve been experiencing, I was able to continue my exercises and local runs outside.

My goals for July are to continue going to the gym, adding more running miles, and trying new equipment at the gym while maintaining my 80/20 food goals.

A few hiking pictures plus some food photos behind the cut. If you would like to keep up with me on a daily basis, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat.

The picture to the left is a collage of photos taken at The Grand Canyon. It was an amazing sight to see and I can’t wait to share about our experience soon. We hiked for 2 days straight and it was wonderful.  The photo collage on the right was taken in Sedona. I have been several times and just adore the city. I’ll definitely blog about Sedona soon.

Here are some food photos that I shared on Instagram. I try to eat healthy 80/20% of the day. It doesn’t happen all day every day, but I definitely try. For breakfast, I’ll eat yogurt, fruit, avocados, or a smoothie. For snacks during the day, I’ll eat protein bars, fruit or vegetables. For lunch, I’ll eat a salad or turkey sandwich with veggies or fruit. I know that I need to add more protein to my meals and I try to do that during dinner. We try to eat chicken breast and fish, along with vegetables. My favorites are green beans, asparagus, and bell peppers. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to share. I’d love some great recipes to start trying for dinner or new and exciting ideas for lunch.
