Woa, and already it becomes clear that I trained for a half marathon last year and I'm training for a full marathon this year.  I think I'm still on track to get to my 700 miles for the year, but only because I've got some big mileage months coming up soon.

There's a long run this coming weekend, but it's a holiday weekend and I won't be able to make it, so I was forced to make up the run on Monday morning.  It was literally the only time that I was able to do the run, and I had been dreading it for about a week prior to actually running.  The dreading was worse than the run itself.

The part I was dreading was that I had to do the run before work, and it was a fairly big one: 14 miles.  That meant that I had to be up at 5am, then drive to the trail, then do the 14 mile run, then go to work and shower there and work a full day.  I know there are bloggers that would have found this par for the course, but for me, I'm used to napping after my long runs.  I made it, though, despite the fact that it poured for a good portion of the run.  I listened to an audiobook while I ran, which helped tremendously.

Oh yeah, I am anti-headphone.  However, I think headphones are ok in the following situations:

  1. You are on a treadmill
  2. OR:
  3. You are running where there are no cars, it is daytime, you have volume at a reasonable level, and you are not listening to music (talking instead).
So, number 2 applies here.

Things are going quite well.  I have a tiny Galloway group this year - only 5 people.  One of those is a running friend that I've known for years, but the others are all new to me.  We're starting to get to know one another, though, and so far things are going very well.

So...  June was a great month, but I don't know what else to really share about it. We ran.  It rocked.  The end.

How does your Galloway group work? Ours here in Raleigh has almost 500 people and 12 different pace groups (7mm to 15mm).

Great job on the mileage!

Yes, you don't know me, I can't even remember how I ended up here, but I loved your Indonesia trip reports!

We have about 100 people. That's about all we can handle logistics wise. We have a few groups, from Boston qualifiers to my pace. Thanks for stopping by! :)

A very good improvement.
I always listen music (if I am alone) during the workouts, never in race.
