May rewind & a Friday Funny

I started this post earlier this morning and here it is 10 p.m.  Since it is still Friday, I'm determined to get it done & posted.

I don't normally get my monthly rewind done on the last day of the month, but since it's ending on a Friday and I had my run done early I figured why not.  Speaking of having my run done early I had to quickly shoot out the door faster than expected because I looked at my weather app (weather bug) and saw this:

I've become sort of addicted to checking this app, especially in terms of planning a run.  However I've learned that sometimes it looks like it's going to be bad and it turns out to be nothing.  Other times it does turn out to be exactly as it appears and if I ignore what I see I kick myself later on.  It's more often the latter so I've been erring on the side of caution.  When I saw what was coming I rushed out to get my run done.  Turns out it didn't start raining until after 10, but I'm was glad to have a nice run done.

It was a great end to the month of May.  Despite being injured for over half of the month, I've still had a descent amount of mileage.  It wasn't a specific goal, but I managed to clear over 100 miles.  That means for 12 months I've cleared at least 100 miles a month.  I will admit that this last week or so I saw how close I was to reaching this bench mark so I definitely wouldn't give myself any slack.  In the end I logged 109.33 miles.

This brings my total for 2013 up to 745.18 miles.  It does put me (seriously) behind on my Run This Year goal.  To keep on track I'm going to have to run 211 miles a month for the rest of the year.  *siigh*  It is way too early & I am way too determined to call this goal a fail. I'm optimistic....ANYTHING can happen.

Even though it is late I'm still going to throw you a Friday Funny.  I saw it this morning on fb.  It made me chuckle at it's silliness.  Oh, if it was only this simple.  Running I can do all the live long day, but work on my abs...ugh!

Have a great weekend everyone!!


  1. Glad you got that run in! Was your goal to run 2013 miles? Good luck!!

    1. Yes, when I refer to Run This Year it means my goal of 2013 miles. Thanks!
