Successful June

I wanted to run at least 1 mile every day this month and total 60 miles. Mission accomplished! When running, I tried to focus on some running skill improvements:

  • Better breathing by taking long deep breaths instead of quick ones.
  • Increase my cadence closer to 180 steps per minute.
  • Turn my toe strike into more of a midfoot strike.

I was planning to go out with a bang today by going at least 5 miles. Ended up going just over a 10k for 6.23 miles in 59:15 for an average pace of 9:31/mile and an average heart rate of 136. For the month I went over 72 miles.

Kind of an interesting pattern to the pacing from mile to mile. Almost like I was going up and then down a mountain. 🙂
