I'm adding some new running goals at the half way point of the year - I mentioned the 10k I am doing in October, well my fastest 10k time is 52.56 - I'm trying to get it under 52.30 but I'd love to get it under 52! We'll see!

Monthly Totals - June
Miles 33.4

On Sunday Mike and I went for a nice light run together, first one back after the half! It was great to run together, we don't often get to as he's so much faster than me usually. It was also really cool as we ran a small part of the half route together which was romantic as it was a week ago to the day that he proposed so it seemed a good way to celebrate it... God I sound soppy!

4 miles in 36.08 average pace 9.09
Mile 1 - 9.41
Mile 2 - 9.46
Mile 3 - 8.26
Mile 4 - 8.43

My new trainers felt great, I really liked them, I'm so relieved I was scared they would hurt my feet or my legs! I took a picture of me in them but I looked pretty daft so I'm afraid it's not made the cut!

I did some gymnastics today, feel like I've lost a bit of strength but I'll just have to work and get it back ;-)

Glad you all liked Roxie, I've been taking loads of pictures so I'll post some more next time..
