August Running Update: This past month, I ran a total of 44.23 miles. More than July, but not what I had hoped for. September will definitely be a game changer. I’m back to my half marathon training and I’m determined to stick with the plan this go round.
According to Runkeeper, I had a total of 44.23 miles completed. My average pace was 14.03.
I completed 20 activities. I burned 3,068 calories. Elevation climbed 896 feet.
I spent 10:22 hours doing some sort of activity.
This past month, I didn’t reach the number of miles I wanted, but I did increase the activity by 10. I’ve started to incorporate a lot of running/walking. I’ve been trying to encourage my daughter to start exercising more and when I run with her, we spend more time walking. I’ve also started walking with some other ladies from the gym. I have a lot of fun walking and chatting with them and we are planning on participating in some upcoming races in Phoenix. I really hope it happens. It would be great to have some running buddies. Below are some photos from my “runningwithtiu” Instagram account. Please follow for future training updates.
So September is my new game changer month. I really love this time of year in Arizona. Fall is approaching and so are the cooler temps in the morning. So exciting!! I recently added the update to the Nike Running Club. The app provides a training coach and tomorrow I start my half marathon plan. The plan is set up for 3-4 runs per week with being ready for the half by the end of December. It’s a combination of 65 workouts with a total of 178 total miles. I hope to start blogging more about my runs and if you have any advice, I totally welcome the comments.
Week one has 3 rest days, 1 benchmark day, 2 recovery days and a long run day. I’m so excited. Please come along this journey with me. If you have the NRC app, let me know your information. We can be virtual running buddies. 🙂
