Running-wise, March was a tough month because of my knee injury. There were two weeks where I only ran 10km for the entire week. When I was in Europe I walked a lot and I also swam quite a few times this month to keep my cardio up. On the bright side my knee seems to be doing great and I’m building up mileage again so I’m really hopeful for April.
April is going to be a busy month with the North Face Endurance Challenge next weekend and Pick Your Poison 50k at the end of the month. I still don’t know what distance I’m running at NFECS but by the end of the weekend I should.
I (stupidly) checked the weather for DC, which was probably big mistake because they are forecasting 50+mm of rain a couple days before the race. My fingers are crossed that the weather people are wrong!
My goals for April:
- Keep doing my physio exercises. Since my knee injury I’ve been doing a great job with this but I don’t want to start slacking now that I’m feeling better.
- Foam roll EVERY DAY! I always have trouble with this. I might try to start foam rolling in the morning to get it out of the way.
- Bring my lunch to work every day. I’m still going strong on this and haven’t bought my lunch yet in 2016!
- Start riding my bike to work. The weather is on the verge of warm enough, it’s free and faster than the subway so it’s really a win-win.
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend and especially those running Around the Bay!
What’s your goal for April? Are you trying anything new?
