Ultimate Running Date #48 May

With the cooler weather now upon us, it’s time to dust off those warmer running clothes.

We shall need them for our running date. This morning it was a balmy 1.4°c.  Brrr. Yeah, just a tad cold for my liking.

May, was a quiet month when it came to running.

I started a 10km training plan just to keep my fitness level up.

Yoga and weight training are also heavily featured.  I was able to finish both True Yoga & Chalean Extreme.

This means for June I get to start something new.

That something new is PIIT28.  I bought this back when I got injured in 2016.  I’ve done bits and pieces of it but never the whole shebang.

This will be my cross-training tool to complement my running program. It will take me longer than 28 days, as a PIIT workout will only happen 2-3 times a week.

The advantages of this program are that it’s all bodyweight, and all the exercises are modifiable, so you can stay within your skill level.

With a change in my work roster (again), most of my runs, are now after work.  So while I’m not witnessing sunrises, I do get to see a few sunsets.

May Running Statistics

Total Hours – 14
Longest Distance 
– 12 km
Number of Activities 
– 20

Overall Running Statistics

Total Moving Distance – 903 km
Monthly Average – 180.6 km
2018 Prediction – 2,167 km

Still on target for my 2018km goal.

If I keep an average of 35km for the week, then I will reach my goal.  To keep myself accountable I use the Done App, which is a simple habit tracker.  It’s like a reverse to-do list. It’s clean and simple. Upgrading to the pro version will only cost you $3.  Well worth it in my opinion.

My challenges for June are;

  • 35km a week
  • PIIT min 2 x a week
  • Mobility everyday
  • A minimum of 7h30m sleep
  • Not eat crap at work

So, until next time, run on!
