Wahoo, I’m officially halfway through this training cycle! Overall, this has been a very successful training cycle thus far, and I’m only 5.5 miles away from meeting my June mileage goal. With today being the last day of the month, you know that I’ll be doing some extra walking after my run today in order to ensure that I meet my monthly goal.
The highlight of this week was my several speedy runs. As I reflected upon last week, my hard work, focus, and persistence has been paying off. My pace has slowly been getting faster and faster, and this past week I finally crushed my goal to run a sub-31 minute 5k.
The high that my speedy run early in the week left my on carried me through the rest of a very productive and successful week of training.

This past week has been all about pushing myself further than ever before. I want to continue doing so, which means putting in the hard work and staying focused on my goals. Tomorrow, I’ll reflect on my June goals and set new goals for the month of July, but for now, I’ll leave you with my motivation for the coming week.
