My May fitness challenge was a total success!!! And so was the bread machine, which was my reward for the May fitness challenge!
So it’s June now!
I gave myself a bit of an exercise break after my 10K last week- I pretty much only walked and did yoga. My knee and hip have been hurting all week so I’ve been trying to take it easy (I’m getting old!). But it’s a new month and that means that it’s time for a new fitness challenge!
Also I’ve decided that in July I’m going to start training for a half marathon. There are several that I’m looking at in the fall, when I pick one I’ll let y’all know! (I was going to wait till Feb for the Cowtown, but I figured why not do one sooner since I’m so pumped about it right now?!)
June Fitness Challenge
Goal 1: Keep running, but cut down on my mileage a little. I’m going to aim for running twice a week this month, but I’m going to run no more than 3 miles during a run- I want to work on consistency and maybe picking up my pace a bit. Honestly I don’t really care much about how fast I run- it’s all about the distance to me. But I think it would be really cool if I could consistently run around a 10 minute mile. And I’ll also lift weights on days that I run.
Goal 2: Ride my bike/take spin class more often! A couple of my coworkers take a spin class on Wednesdays at noon, so I thought it might be fun to join them! Also, Laura…. let’s go biking again soon!!!!
Goal 3: Go to kickboxing more consistently. I won’t be working on Mondays again for a while, so this should be easy since my fav kickboxing class is on Monday evening.
So in summary, my goal is to work out 4 days/week this month- two days running and lifting, one spin class or biking, and one kickboxing class.
I’m going to get a Garmin Forerunner 305 as my reward!

I want to run outside more and I want to be able to keep track of my pace and my mileage- especially since I’ll be training for a half marathon. These things are soooo cool- it’s like a GPS in a watch!
I’ve also found some pretty crazy good deals on ebay. Can’t wait to get this!!!
I’m super pumped about this month’s fitness challenge! And it starts riiiiiight….. NOW!!!
