Through injury and laziness, this has been a short-distance year, but April has things back on track!
April started with a 10 mile race with no training. This then lead me to take some time to heal up! Now I am working on building a solid base to prevent my annual injury.. What is coo, is that this month has been my longest mileage since March of 2012. (It seems I have been pretty lazy.. for a year.) I ran a total of 39.6 miles in 5 hours and 47 minutes and finally went over 100 miles for the year.
April held one race, the Cherry Blossom 10 mile run, and I set a PR for the distance.
again registered for the Marine Corps Marathon, in a herculean one hour and change process… But that was actually in March. Trust me, it deserves mentioning.. I was emotionally traumatized until April.
I ran my fastest pace this month at 7:22 for a 2.3 mile run, and a fastest mile of 7:11.
So what are my Goals for may?
Mileage: over 100 for the month would be nice, although that might be ramping it up to fast.
Races: Find one and run it! I don’t have a may race lined up at this point, I need to look around. I miss the nice easy race calendar that the Triple Cities Runners Club has that covers that area. No one seems to have a Baltimore-Annapolis-DC race list.. Or even a good one for any of them individually (or the area in between that I live in!)
Fix my closet shelf/bar that collapsed last night.
I’d like to see 10-15 pounds go away too. This one will be impossible to judge however, as my scale broke. I think I will just assume I made it. 🙂
Turn 38 years old.
And a Contest!!! If you want to know what the contest IS, stay tuned! I suspect it will be around May 19th as that is one of my favorite days of the year!
I’m pretty pleased with April, and look forward to what May will be bringing!
