July in Review

How in the world is it almost August? I'm seriously blown away at how fast this year has passed by! I say it all the time but it's true. With the arrival of August that means a few things - for one, it's my birthday month so woohooo about that. Second, it's our vacay month and last but not least, it's one month closer to Christmas! Yeehaaa!

Let's take a look back over July and see how it looks from a running/workout perspective.

So, y'all know I've given this little Orangetheory thing a try...and I love it...and I am having major results from it.

During the month of July, I attended 8 Orangetheory classes (including one today). Throughout that time, we worked on everything from endurance to strength to power and each and every class was a full head to toe workout.

On the running forefront, I ran twice a week for the month of July. My goal was to run one day during the week and a "longer-ish" run on the weekend. This scenario didn't always pan out as we've had several days of excessive heat warnings and I just can't deal running in "feels like 107 degrees" temps. So, my longer runs usually turned into shorter ones. Oh well...I'll get back into the swing of half-marathon training once it cools off outside. Even though my longer runs pretty much went to garbage this month, I did manage several quality runs and they were great. These runs were definitely confidence boosters and proof of how much Orangetheory has paid off!

I also ran one race during the month of July. This race was a 4 miler on the 4th of July and I managed a 3 second PR despite my ridiculous heart issues. I can't wait to see what the fall and cooler weather will bring!

I'd say it was a pretty good month in my book!

Goodbye, July! Hello, August! 

Tuesdays on the Run

It's the Tuesdays On The Run Linkup with ErikaMarcia and Patty


  1. Quality always outweighs quantity. Good job!

  2. It's always great to see results from workouts.

  3. I've been to one Orangetheory class but that's it. I do keep hearing great things about it. Glad to see the classes have been beneficial.

  4. Great month for you! I hear great things about OTF but have yet to pull the trigger. I swear it's been so hot everywhere!

  5. Yes, a great month, indeed! The quality runs totally trump the quantity, so that's a win for you ;-) No Orange Theory in my area, but I have heard great things from those you've done it...glad it's been a hit with you!

  6. I agree with you that I cant believe that it's already August. This summer has gone by in record time.

    I have never tried Orange Theory but I would really like to take a class their one day.
