It’s hard to believe April has already flown by. Regarding running, April started off ok then progressively went downhill, and ended up that needed and wanted a full break from running.
Miles Run: 228
Range of Paces: 5:54-10:04-untimed
Rest Days: 9 (and counting)
Longest Run: Atlantic City Half Marathon
Shortest Run: 2 miles
The month of April started off well. Even though I didn’t PR at the Phillies 5k, I ran moderately well. It was by far my favorite race.
As the month continued, I became more and more burnt out from running. It wasn’t just April that burnt me out but training over the last 6. After Atlantic City on April 23rd, I decided to take rest and rebuild my mental attitude. I don’t hate running, but I wasn’t enjoying it as much, and I never broke through my plateau.
I don’t know what May will bring. I hope I’ll be ready to run again. While I haven’t run or really worked out since last weekend but I do plan to do more cross training and get back to the gym.
Questions for you:
How was your month of training?
What is your favorite cross training activity?
