Marching to the Beat of My Own Drum
Is March already over?
I always dread writing training month recaps when I’m injured or had a rough training month. Who likes reading about the #bumbutt. It’s important to be honest and consistent so I keep writing recap posts. Anyways…March taught me a lot.
Since Phoenix marathon was February 28th, that obviously effected my entire month of March.
After NYCM 20 months ago, I wondered how people recovered from a marathon so quickly.
After Phoenix in February, I still wonder how people recover so quickly. Marathon maniacs are really maniacs…I have come to the conclusion I will be a 1 maybe 2 (per year) marathon person. That distance is humbling and the recovery…is more humbling.
Some people recover from marathons well…I’m not one of those people.
Total miles: 122
Average pace: 6:41-mostly untimed
Races: Shamrock Half marathon (1:33.06)
Best Training Run:
Quite honestly, none of my training runs have been that stellar. With my nagging #bumbutt, nothing feels like I could run for miles. That is how it goes though…my runs later in the month have been better than the first few. Hopefully April brings complete injury free miles.
The month of March has been strictly recovery and figuring out my butt pain. While I haven’t 100% figured out everything I think I’m getting close. It’s also been a frustrating month…not every month can be great. Since I ran about half the miles as I normally have, this recap is about half the length. As I said on Monday, I’m going to make be taking most of April for wedding related things and a honeymoon. Training can wait…
I’m getting married and going on a honeymoon. I will still run and actively try to figure out my butt but it will not be a priority. Honesty is the best policy right?
Questions for you:
How was your month of March?
Does anyone have a big race in April?
I know here in NJ, the Long Branch half marathon is at the end of the month. One of my favorite races, the Atlantic City half marathon, is next weekend too.
