Thus far I've partially torn my achilles and struggled due to family commitments stay regimented with my work-out time. As such the month of April was terrible, but the subsequent months of May and June were better. July must be like my January for me to complete this mission. With summer now in full swing here's my progress:
- May 2014 completed 20.4 miles with a 12'55" pace and 7,754 Nike+
- June 2014 completed 43.7 miles with a 12'08" pace and 17,068 Nike+
So far in July I've completed 9.13 miles with a 13'25" pace and 3,280 Nike+... my #500in2014 Challenge totals to date are 240 miles and that places me in 13th place at this time. I'm almost half way there but I'm a month behind?
What's going to be my major task for the remainder of this month (and moving forward) is to drastically alter my eating. I'm not losing the wieght that I'd hoped for and as such a more protein enriched, veggie ladden diet will put me into a weight range that'll impact my mileage output. I'd done this in January and February when the challenge began and it helped a great deal. Theoretically: Less weight to carry equates into more miles... at least so I hope and rationalize.
