Hard to believe it is July already. Just seems like yesterday that I was climbing onto the treadmill to kick off the training for my first ever marathon. Despite the weather in Northeast Ohio. It has been a pretty good year for me. I've completed 10 races, one of which was my first ever marathon. I thought I would take a quick second to share some data from Garmin Connect on my first 6 months of training.
Race breakdown: 1 Marathon, 2 Half Marathons, 2 10 Milers, 1 4 miler, 3 5Ks, and 1 100K Cycling Tour.
Total miles: 1,895
Time Training: 200 hours 46 Minutes
Calories burned: 187, 857
Weight Lost: 12 lbs.
Overall I am fairly satisfied with training. It is hard to be upset when you've completed your first marathon, but I am roughy 1,000 miles short of my goal for 6 months. That is the fault of the weather as I haven't gotten out on the bike until late May. Good news, I have 6 months to make up for it.
So, what's planned for the rest of the year? Some of the best events of the year are still to come. Akron Marathon, ABC Tour, Ice Cream Odyssey and Shot in the Dark in the same day, MS 150, Sweet Corn Challenge, and LAS VEGAS at night!!
Stop back and see how it goes.
