Contributorgold Joanne M The good: I was really pleased to complete the Complete 50 TS Challenges challenge. That's was a big milestone for me. Onwards and upwards now! The bad: I'm struggling with some of the daily challenges - just can't seem to get them into my routine. The ugly: too much rain. Is a nice, dry run too much to ask for in June?

Eran K Sum up June .. the good the bad and the down right ugly Challenge

Contributorgold Eran K So... The GOOD are 180 km running, especially 3 long trail events (15 - 20km) that really took me to a different level of effort, and joy. The BAD, I didn't get a chance to complete my 30km run, still itches... and the UGLY, well, that will have to be the weather over here lately, constant heat & humidity all the way till October, so here's to sweaty runs, late night workout and plenty of beach time. HAPPY SUMMER EVERYONE!!

First P Sum up June .. the good the bad and the down right ugly Challenge

Contributorgold First P June was a great time of running for me. It was a joy and it felt so good to be out there on the road, on the trail, in sunshine and in the rain. The pleasure I felt is indescribable. I felt stronger, I was and am running faster. Sometimes I had to rein myself in to avoid overtraining and injury. It's like the beginning of a love affair. I am loving running more than ever!
Total Mileage for June: 152 miles.

20120310173432-cheeta

It was enough of a bump to take the car off the road... not a write off but she's still getting repaired now. Got some whiplash from it but thankfully it only lasted 2 days. Lesson learned: I need to be more aware of the people who decide to brake before merging with motorway traffic!

The BAD: Not pushed out anywhere enough km on running or cycling...I can use the excuse of lack of time and the c**p weather, but I truely I need to prioritise this more.

Lorain R Sum up June .. the good the bad and the down right ugly Challenge

Contributorgold Lorain R The Good: Had a birthday (#53) and I am in the best shape of my life! I have beat my previous personal best (which I just set last month of 206 miles of running) I am at 213 miles for June and I have yet to run today. (Last June, due to an Achilles injury I logged only 55 training miles) I have logged almost 900 training miles for the year, so far. I have run 66 days in a row; before that I was ecstatic at having completed 7 days in a row. I got back on my bike, and did some real barefoot running. The downright ugly: did some whining, doubted myself a few times, and I still need to clean my house. I am more interested in my personal fitness than I am in making sure my chores are done. There you go.

20130810144558-kaplaneran

Wow, lost for words.. Happy birthday, crazy girl! Forget about the chores, 213 miles, 66 days.. I'd come and clean your house for you if I could.. :-)

Contributorgold Frank P June- by the end of today I will have completed 10kpushups, 641miles of cycling and some odds and ends fitness training. I also completed my 1st metric century (4:13) and century (6:15) rides, and my 1st offical bike race/tour All while fighting a nasty chest infection consisting of a nasty cough which I am still holding on to. Overall, I am pleased - however, I missed my goal of cycling 800miles for the month.

Marie N Sum up June .. the good the bad and the down right ugly Challenge

Contributorsilver Marie N June was a great month :) The GOOD: have covered 130.73 miles my biggest monthly total since starting to run in January; I treated myself to a pair of proper running trainers; I came fourth in the Race for Life and got a PB for a 5k (23:20); we had an offer accepted on a house and we are hopefully exchanging next week. I really can't think of anything BAD or UGLY that has happened this month .... wish all months were as good :)

Sam S Sum up June .. the good the bad and the down right ugly Challenge

Contributorgold Sam S June saw me complete the 54 mile London to Brighton cycle. It was, quite simply the BEST physical achievement of my 38 years and I am ridiculously proud of myself and can't wait to try it again next year...FASTER! Training for this and 3 charity 5k's has got me back to a reasonable fitness level and I just want to do more. The only ugly side of June was when I bought new scales and realised I was heavier than I thought...bummer! It's probably all muscle though so that's fine ;-)

20120901152248-runningurl

Great accomplishment Sam. You're going great guns, keep it up, don't forget to chill out as well though and rest that body. Yeh probably muscle, if you weren't toning up along the way something wouldn't be right!

Archie H Sum up June .. the good the bad and the down right ugly Challenge

Contributorgold Archie H June was a exciting month. I ran a 5k and won my age division. The YMCA in Dewitt put out really nice dryfit shirts. I got to meet a local tv anchor person. Workouts have been great. I'm learning to regulate my sugar and carbs. June was super.

20120613190834-jeckie

Sounds like an awesome month! Great way to lead into another great one! :)

Sarah T Sum up June .. the good the bad and the down right ugly Challenge

Contributorbronze Sarah T June was far too lazy a month for me. I only put in 38 miles (61 km), when my goal was 50. The scale isn't moving, either.

The good things were - my size is changing (had to get rid of a couple more things from the closet), I got back on the bike for the first time in 10 years, and I climbed a mountain for the first time in a very long time. Those things make me very happy!

encouraged this.

20140210014824-mariag1

Good job on making yourself happy! : )

20120606002554-heyhelm

Hurray for getting back on the bike and climbing a mountain. Sounds like a month full of accomplishment to me.
