April offered some unique challenges for my running that made it difficult for me to meet my mileage goals for the month. I was unable to run during our days at Williamsburg (no one to watch the boys), and then the rest of the month involved a throat infection and a strained back which took me off my runs a bit. I did my best to run when I could, and overall didn't have a bad month.
I ran two 5Ks this past month. The first was the Roanoke River 5K on April 7th. It was nice weather and a flat course. I did have problems with my lungs burning the last mile (and then for about 10 minutes afterwards). It was strange. I ran alright though with a time of 23:26 and a medal for placing first in my age group.
Weights: x 8
Abs: x 2 (plus daily plank work)
Yoga: x 4
Next month I won't be able to run the 10K I was targeting because Paul will be out of town, and I don't have anyone to watch the boys. So I'll probably just do a 5K in May and hope to hang on to some of the speed I built this past winter. My glute is still quite bothersome, but hopefully it won't become a bigger issue.
Any goals for you in May, readers?
