I know April is not over yet. We still have a few more days left. I am excited for this month to be over because then next month is May which then brings us closer to the end of the school year.
After a rough start with running due to the weather, I am back at it. I started a new run streak and am excited about it. I am also planning to run a 50k this year. Yikes!
So let me tell you about how this month is going.
At the end of April we’ll be 1/3 done with 2022. Time is going by fast!
Mileage: As of yesterday morning I’ve run 55.30 miles. All of my runs have been easy runs with run/walk intervals. Each day I run for a specific amount of time instead of miles. I like it! Each week I am slowly increasing my mileage and last week was 16.79 miles. There are still a few more days left in April but I am guessing that I will have about 70 miles for this month.
Highest Mileage Week: 16.79. It was this past week and it took me 3:45:46 hours.
Current Challenge: My running streak. Yesterday was day #25. Weather is so much better than a few months ago but still does not feel like Spring.
Current Book: Finally reading “When I Ran Away”. It is taking me longer to finish reading it and I have mixed feeling about it. I have my days when I like it and days when I don’t.
Current Shoes: Currently running in an “older” pair of Brooks Launch. I’ve run mostly in the Ghost and kind of forgot how much I love this shoe. I remember the first time I wore the Launch, my feet hurt, and I almost stopped wearing them. Glad I didn’t. I have a new pair of the Ghost that I am thinking of sending back and instead get the Launch. But after that, no more shoes.
2022 Running Goal: My goal this year is to run 1,200 miles. I am at 7% done with 95.57 miles. Who knows how realistic this goal is. I have a long way to go but hopefully the 50k training will get me to that goal or at least close to it.
What am I looking forward to next month? Almost the end of the school year! My last day of school is June 7th. 😊
How is April going for you?
