Monthly Recap: July 2011

Yikes!  As I was typing up my August recap I realized I never did July!  Oops. 

In July I finished up 8 weeks of base building and started officially training for fall race season {mainly the Urban Cow Half and the CIM}. 

I continued to remain committed to WW and dropped down into the 130’s during July.  I attended an Injury Prevention Clinic held by Dr. Edward Chu from Elite Spinal & Sports Care where I learned more about nutrition and fueling and some specific exercises for runners and for my piriformis issues. 

I received the Amazing Blogger Award from Heather at 365 Days of Awesome and I wrote a guest post for Michelle at See Michelle Blog.  We said goodbye to one of our kitties and attended my nephew’s wedding.   

I continued reading and finished Kara Goucher’s Running For Women:  From First Steps to Marathons by Kara Goucher and My Life on the Run by Bart Yasso.

I talked about how my 2011 Goals are going so far this year and experimented with my camera on the 4th of July and took Lucy on a day trip to the ocean!  I attempted to donate blood for the 2nd time this year but my iron count was too low {again} by 1 point {again}.

I just finished the Girl Who Played with Fire and am waiting for the next one. I read them on my phone, so there's always a wait for the free copies from the library. I've had trouble getting into both of the books so far, but once I made it about a third of the way, I couldn't put either down. I expect the same with the last one.

BTW, check out my blog today...
