I’m convinced that May went by quicker than April, which was pretty hard to beat. May seemed to be more stressful than the other months this year, and I felt like I was always on the go. The good thing about May being over is that summer is almost here!
Let’s take a look at the numbers for this past month.
Miles run: 46
Races run: 2 (Flying Pig Half Marathon & Medina Half Marathon)
Books read: Started Once A Runner
Places traveled: 2, Cincy/Kentucky & Put-In-Bay, but no crazy trips
Unnecessary purchases cut down: Nope
New recipes: Tried a new pasta, Ohio City Pasta is superb to cook with
Miles were down in May, but this was a result of my big
failure race at Flying Pig. After the hills I swore off running for a few days, but was back at it to get redemption at the Medina Half Marathon. And redemption I got! I shaved 24 minutes off my time from Flying Pig and finally got out of my half marathon timing funk. Just in time too, marathon training starts next Monday!
I didn’t do much traveling, which is why I’m still not getting anywhere with reading books for fun. I definitely want to make this a priority this month. But I am looking forward to reading Once a Runner, I’m hoping it will help keep up motivation with training.
One of my favorite things this month was the Medina Farmers Market. Every saturday from 9-1, Memorial Day until Labor Day, the farmers market is out on the square. It’s such a great event and really allows you to buy local. I picked up some Ohio City Pasta and have enjoyed cooking with it. I’ll be shopping at the market a lot this summer.
June will be busy, so I imagine it will go by even quicker, but I’m excited for summer to finally be here!
Did you do anything exciting in May? What are you plans for June?
One thought on “May Rewind”
Congrats on shaving so much time off at Flying Pig! I think May went much quicker too!
