Happy April, everyone! I’m so happy that spring has sprung! The flowers are blooming and I’m finally starting to feel more like myself again. I haven’t done this in a while, but let’s look back at the last month of running, because it was a good one!
Highlights: A new 5K PR, growing confidence
Low-lights: An 18-miler turned 6
Miles run: 125.1
This past week was a bit of a step back week. I had a half marathon scheduled as a long run, and did a couple of shorter runs. All in all it was a great week and I’m ready to head into my “peak week” of training for the New Jersey Marathon!
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: 4.75 miles total – 1 at Girls on the Run, 3.75 Easy-Moderate effort at home. My left foot and ankle were bothering me a bit, but I survived. Also bodyweight exercises while watching tv.
Wednesday: 5.95 miles, half on my own, half with Jake. I ran without scheduled intervals and felt good until when I tripped and fell!
Thursday: 3 miles super easy to recover from the last couple days of harder (for me) runs. I contemplated a rest day, but I really wanted to reach 125 for the month!
Friday: Rest day!
Saturday: 13.1 miles at the Oldfield’s Half Marathon – recap coming up soon!
Sunday: 13.5 mile bike ride to give my legs some needed downtime after that half
Running miles: 26.8 miles
Ready for one last big week before it’s TAPER TIME! Less than 4 weeks to go – the countdown is on!
