1 Race /Parkrun
I only managed 1 10-mile run, which was right at the start of the month, but my other long runs were 2x 7-milers and 1 8-miler. I'd like to get back to 10 miles and above in September, which will be easier with the kids at school!
When I was worried that I couldn't fit enough running in, I started doing my 30-day Shred DVD again (with Jillian Michaels). I last did it when I had the dodgy heel at the end of 2010, and I've been finding it pretty tough. I've enjoyed it though, and the kids can go and play upstairs for 30 minutes while I get on with it, so it's handy.
I didn't plan to do any races in August, but I ended up going to Parkrun on 18th, and ran 5K in 25m38. I think I was defrinitely hampered by some very hot weather.
I hardly touched my bike, because whenever I had some free time, I ran, but I'll get back to that soon I hope.
As well as looking after the children, my running was also limited by staying home and watching the Olympics, and then going to London to watch the Olympics! I went to London 3 times in all, and saw the Women's and Men's Marathons, the Women's Open Water Swim, and some Women's Basketball.
