March in review..
Overall I would say March was pretty good. I felt really good about my running and I managed to rack up 151 miles in my running shoes which is the most since last June.
I did one race the Run to the Pub Half Marathon. I felt good about my time given the training to date. Last fall when I decided to do the race I wanted it to be a PR attempt. But between winter running in general (snowy bad roads) and seeming to be constantly sick in December and the beginning of January, and some lower back pain it just didn't happen. I am okay with that, there will be other halfs!
I did also participate in two virtual runs.. the Team Gabby virtual run and the 2nd Annual Running with Spatulas 10k, 5k, and photo contest. Here is one of the pictures that I didn't submit. This is what happens when your camera has a self timer and you have time on your hands. I turn into a weirdo.
I retired one pair of running shoes and added two more pairs. I am going to be retiring two more pairs by the end of April probably, but when you have as many shoes in the line up as I do it takes awhile to wear them out so they might not really retire.
I have been doing 3-4 ZWOW's or Bodyrock type workouts a week pretty consistently and seeing some results I think.
Sadly... the freaking sugar monster seems to have taken over my life and the jeans don't lie, they never do, the results there aren't as pretty. 5 lbs in two months. Aaack! I think partly it has been some stress eating. Time to get serious again now that I have a house full of Easter candy... right..
Running in general feels good right now, I feel recovered from the half marathon and ready to tackle the next thing. I am going to be focusing on speed work for the next month. Intervals, fartleks, the dreaded tempo run.
So next weekend originally was going to be another half marathon, but they rescheduled to OCTOBER. who does that 7 weeks out from the race? so I found a 5k on Sunday April 7th.
April 13th will be another 5k.
April 28 Peaks to Prairie. I will be doing the 9.3 mile leg of the run, bike, paddle course.
How was your March?
Any exciting April plans?
