Month in Numbers is brought to you by Julie at notes on paper.
Moving on to May's numbers though ...
2 pairs of running shoes bought. 1 for myself because I'm doing the couch to 5K running program and 1 for The Little Girl because she only had cross trainers and has been / will be doing a lot of straight running over the next 6 months. This is what her runners looked like after her first race. Running through mud puddles will do that.
It wasn't the most successful run for her, 16min for 3km but by the time of the GSV championship race on the 30th May she did a 12:31min for the 3km. Coming 5th in the B race, she missed the A team for her school because she got tripped in the preliminary race and ended up 11th fastest by only 8s. Her time at the championship was the 4th fastest for a junior runner from her school on the day. She's had a big improvement which isn't surprising considering she was only given the go ahead to start running in March.
2 new fruits tried. I've begun ordering CERES boxes again and we received tamarillos and a persimmon in our box one week. I had to google to see what they were. Persimmon good ... tamarillo not so much.
7 days and 130km hiking, biking and canoeing. The Big Girl's camp was a true test this year ... and they made it from the head of the Yarra back to school. May happened to be one of our warmest on record, unfortunately the camp was smack bang in some of the worst weather for the month. The first day was cold, rainy and the steep dirt track had already been churned up by an earlier race. Beautiful countryside though ...
14 extra hours string orchestra rehearsal at school for The Little Girl in preparation for the concerto evening.
3rd Grade piano for Leisure exam completed by The Little Girl.
12 days overseas in 3 countries (China, UK and Italy) for Hubby.
8955 steps per day up 200 from last month even though I two days I forgot to wear my fitbit. Distance 6.28km up 0.3km, active minutes 32 up 7 and floors 18 down 6.
