It's been a good month for me. So much better than last March, when I was injured. I ran a half marathon this past month, and increased my long runs to 15 miles. And at the track, I finally broke the 7 minute mile barrier and ran a 6:58 mile - for the first time ever! As for the spring weather? Well it made for fantastic running too.
Total miles = 103
Yoga x 13 I've been really stressed out, and you can see it in all the yoga. I don't think I've ever done this much yoga in a month. Just trying to find some solace. Thankfully, I don't think you can ever do too much yoga.
Weights x 9
You know what I've been loving this month? No bake energy balls. I've made them twice and they are delicious!
The Sweet Detail.
I'm going to be cutting back on my speedwork at the track for the next couple of weeks, upon the recommendation of my ART (active release therapy) practitioner, who feels that is what is aggravating my hip/glute. Hoping a 5K in April will keep my legs a little speedy - I've worked hard and I don't want to lose that - but I also don't want to battle a long-term injury again. The last week of March after my half marathon I barely ran at all - just a measly 11 miles for the week - and the glute is still bothering me. If things don't improve, I'll be making April a very light running month in hopes of keeping serious injury at bay.
What are your plans for April, readers?
