June 2009 running totals: Two bills and then some.

I ended this month with a swift 10-miler this morning, averaging just under 7:30 min/mile for the distance, including 7:05 min/mile for the last six miles.

The mileage total brought me to 241.66 for the month. Its the most miles I've ever done in any month, eclipsing the 194-mile January. This month I had 12 runs of at least 10 miles and have 34 such runs halfway through 2009.

I had 28 double-digit runs in all of 2008.

Now I don't have the speed of Kamran or Jess, and I am not running as many weekly miles as Sadie or Heather, but 200-plus is something to be proud of.

And I think I ran smart during the month, taking my "easy days" as often as I could. My average pace for the month ties February for my slowest month of the year and is my slowest month since September. I think the easier running has helped me overcome some nagging leg pain I had at the beginning of the month. My left knee, which has been wonky since November, seems to be totally over whatever it is that was giving it problems.

You are becoming a very strong and a bit obssessed runner from the mileage I see... congrats on that :)
