April Recap

Whoa! April really got me back into the swing of things running wise. I ran a total of 106 miles and averaged an 8:24 pace, which I’m more than happy with. After this month I’m at 376.9 miles for the year so far! I am still running, knock on wood, injury free for the most part and now training for Mountains to Beach at the end of the month has really motivated me to get back on a routine and schedule.

You may not remember every training run... But you'll never forget race day.

I’ve also really tried to keep thinking of this when I run lately. Sometimes a training schedule can be really overwhelming and so I am just running with the intent to make each run count towards my goal during that run, instead of focusing on the end goal of the marathon at the end of the month. Race morning will be here so quickly and I’m looking forward to it.

This month, I also started implementing more speed work into my running, which I normally NEVER do. This has helped me get a lot faster and makes each training run go by so much faster as well. The weather here this week has been not the best for running, with record breaking temps, fires in the local area which lead to bad air quality but I know this too will soon pass, but it does make running right now a bit difficult. I do have a 16 miler up on tap for the weekend and am plotting out a decent route that will take me through a few new spots to keep it interesting!

    One thing that really sticks with me that you said… and probably will stick with me the rest of my LIFE! “Run with a purpose”! So simple, so meaningful! Will be in your hood (kindah). The OC this weekend. My purpose is NOT to PR. I can say that honestly, cuz I’m not going to even try. I just want to get through it with no hip flexor issues!

    Stay fierce D!
