I feel like April just started.  How is it over so soon?  As of yesterday, I have 5 weeks left of school.

• Training went very well this month.  I had a good month in April.  Some days we had decent weather and it was nice enough to run in shorts.  Though there was a day or two that we did have a little bit of snow.

• Ran 110.51 miles.  Another month over 100 miles.  Total to date is 410.01 and that put me at 34% done of my yearly goal.

• Total time running was 21:42.  Not quite a whole day but pretty close.

• Ran another race.  Instead of running a marathon, I did a half marathon.  It wasn’t my day.  You can read about it here.

• 21 days of running.  I run 5 days a week and have been loving it.  My rest days are Monday and Friday which is good because those are the two days in which I am the most tired.  I will begin training for a half marathon (ZOOMA Great Lakes or Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver) but haven’t decided which one and how to train for it.

• More great quality session workouts.  These workouts are my favorite.  I love the variety and the challenge.  I did GREAT in all of them.

• I sort of kept up with Rachel’s challenge.  I didn’t mind too much the pushups or the tricep dips.  The burpees/jump squats are the worst.

• I am a ZOOMA Great Lakes Ambassador.  I am excited for this opportunity and looking forward to running another half marathon in WI.

• Looking forward to 2 races in May.  I am excited to be running the Chicago Spring Half Marathon and 10K (register today w/code “BRCHISPRING18” & get $10 off the half/$5 for the 10K) and the Soldier Field 10 Mile (use “BRSoldierField” to score some bonus RAM Racing sunglasses).

Overall, I am proud of myself with how I did in April.  I did all of my runs which made me very happy.  The only thing that didn’t go as planned was my race on Saturday.  Not a big deal anymore and life goes on.

  1. Great job this month! It sounds like your running is going really well. It was such a strange month of weather so hopefully now it will warm up and be even more enjoyable to be outside!
