|Jun. 30th, 2012 08:47 am June fitness wrap-up, and planning for July|
June fitness month was a resounding success! I didn't miss a single workout, and went beyond the mileage planned. I ran 4x/week for a total of over 110 miles in June, did four stairs workouts and eight workouts with weights, stretches and crunches 4x/week, and a large amount of walking as well.2 notes - Make notes
While I wasn't specifically trying to lose weight, I did lose three pounds, bringing my current weight to 121 lbs (BMI 20.8). I was trying to lose some flab around my waist, and did succeed in reducing the measurement around my navel one inch, to 30". I don't expect to shed many more pounds, if any, but I could stand to lose another inch or two of fat, while building muscle through the weightlifting.
Here's a not-great self-portrait I snapped after my final run of the month yesterday, a sunny 8-miler out to Crissy Field and back:
And here's my training plan for July. I'm not adding many more weekly running miles, but am adding more days of weights and functional exercises (stretches and crunches). I also plan to find a time to visit a track with boyziggy so we can take the President's Challenge Fitness Test.
Looking forward to getting in great shape for fall racing season!
You look like you are in great shape. I wish I could say the same, been dormant for the last few months, but I have started biking (trikin'!) now and that is a very good thing.
Just make sure the crunches are funcrunches, and everything will be cool.
