August Summary.

So here is the end of August summary!! Woot woot!

I have managed to run 216.4km this month in 27 hours and 5 minutes, which is the MOST I've ever run! My old record was in March, where I hit 212km but it took me 4 hours and 3 minutes extra than this month which shows you just how much I've improved. This month it works out to an average of 6.98km each day or 52 minutes each day. So now I feel super proud having beat my highest number ever! I doubt I'll be beating it again any time soon since I'm running a half marathon in September and will have to do rest days before and after and all that fun stuff.

My weight loss this month wasn't as good as I had hoped but that's okay. I still managed to drop 2.4lbs and now only have 6.2lbs left to go which is great. It's so exciting I want to jump for joy and say stupid things like it's crazy awesome that I've rocked this. Okay so time for a more mature response now.

I feel really proud of this month, and even better I was telling my husband the other night that I had to go run because I needed to run an average of 7km to hit my goal and he couldn't believe how far I've come. He often laughs about how he never thought in a million years that he would have to force me to take days off of running or see me run 8km several nights in a row. 5km used to be a little standard run and now it's 8km. So when I only have an hour to run I can hit 8km typically where before it would take me almost 50 minutes just to get 5! Things have changed so much this past year it's hard to believe. I can't wait to see what comes in the rest of the year.
