I had two goals for April and I met both of them:
- Finish the April Fools Half (mentally) healthy
- Not Burn out in April like 2017
So while I didn’t log any extremely fast times or workouts, I also didn’t burn out and that is far ahead of where I was last year.
Miles Run: Around 200
Rest Days: 6
Range of Paces: 5:49-10:32-untimed
April Fools Half (1:26.08)
Making Strides 5k (19:08)
As I mentioned, nothing was exceptionally fast and I’m okay with that! I’m running healthy and that is what matters. As most people know, I took a nasty fall during the April Fools Half (I collided with a spectator cutting across the course). I got an X-ray to confirm I didn’t break anything but it took about 2 weeks to feel good again. It actually hurt the most while sitting. Luckily by the end of the month, I felt much better.
It’s funny to look back at photos and realize there was a lot going on, weather wise. In the beginning of the month we had snow and we ended with 90 degrees!
In May, I’ll be traveling a lot. It’s going to be a busy but fun month. My goal for the summer months is just enjoying running. This summer, I would like to get to local tracks more since students won’t be in school. After Broad Street on Sunday, I don’t have any big goal races of the summer.
