May was overall a pretty good month for training. I only had 24 runs though so my consistency faltered a bit. This was do to the huge re-roofing project my wife and I did by ourselves over the Memorial Day weekend.
I ran a total of 208.50 miles bringing my yearly total to 1,067 miles for 2016 (through the end of May.) My average pace in May was a fairly strong 7:29 per mile and according to suggested training pace calculators, to achieve my goal of sub 30 at Al’s, I would need an easy pace of 7:34 per mile, so I am on target for that goal.
I have also managed to lose a tiny bit more weight and body fat. I am very near my goal of 145 pounds as I am at 148. My body fat (measured by a bathroom scale so . . ) fluctuates between 9-11%.
