June came and went quickly, didn’t it? This summer is actually the shortest summer of all my years teaching, since we got out of school later than usual and will start back pretty early (August 3 is the start of pre-planning). It’s hard to believe that the summer is half gone already!
WEEK OF WORKOUTS (Not super lame, but not awesome either.)
Saturday – Level 3 Shred workout, 3.1 miles
Sunday – Level 3 Shred workout, 3.1 miles
Monday – Level 3 Shred workout, 3.1 miles
Tuesday – Level 3 Shred workout, 3.1 miles
Wednesday – Level 3 Shred workout (exhausting)
Thursday – Level 3 Shred workout (surprisingly, just as exhausting as Wednesday)
Friday – Level 3 Shred workout, 3.1 miles
Total running miles for week: 15.5 miles
TOTAL FOR JUNE: 58.5 MILES (Today’s mileage is part of July.)
The month of June may not seem like it was all that great of a workout month for me. After all, I only got in a little over HALF of the miles that I got in during the month of May. However, I really feel like June was a great month because the 30 Day Shred really challenged me to work out in ways other than just running. I love running, but there really is something to be said for strength training.
For July, my goal is to try to get my mileage up again (maybe not 100 miles, but at least 70 miles for the month). My other goal is to bring in some daily strength training in the same way that I did this month. I initially wanted to do the Ripped in 30 DVD in July, but Patrick suggested that maybe I should go back and do the 30 Day Shred again, trying to do the advanced modification on each move. We’ll see which I choose once I’m done with the Shred on Sunday!
What do you think is the best way to add strength training to a workout routine?
