April Recap

How is it May already? With running Pick Your Poison 50k yesterday (race report coming soon!) and a bunch of friends running marathons today, it seems like running/racing season has really started.

It being May also means that it’s less than a month until my 100 miler (it was 4 weeks yesterday). It’s been busy getting all the plans ready for that! I’ll start making updates on all the progress of getting ready soon. This week is my last week of high mileage and then I’m tapering (so I’ll have extra time to fill you in on what I’m doing 🙂 ). I’m also going to Vegas for work this week so it will be tricking to try to fit in all the running with 12-15 hours but I’m going to try.

April was my highest mileage month of 2016, I ran 324km (200 miles) this month. Running two 50k races probably helped up that number a lot. Also, I’m 30km away from hitting 1,000km this year so that’ll probably happen in the next week!

Here is how I did on my April goals:

  • Keep doing my physio exercises. I have been doing this at least 5 days a week so I’d say I did really well with this one!
  • Foam roll EVERY DAY! Every day probably hasn’t happened but most days it happens.
  • Bring my lunch to work every day. Still going strong on this one! One day this month, I didn’t bring enough food and bought pizza to go with the food that I had but still no days of not bringing any lunch.
  • Start riding my bike to work. Yes! I got a bike tune up and started this two weeks ago, it’s been so nice to spend my commute outside instead of sitting on the subway.

For May, I’m just going to stick with the April goals and keep doing what I’m doing. It’s going to be a busy month with some travelling for work, travelling to go see my new niece and my 100 miler at the end of the month so I need to keep things simple.

What’re your goals for May? Have you run your first race of the season yet?

Happy running!!

    Just ran my 3rd marathon of the young year. Very low key race – Delaware Trail Marathon. Trying to build the mileage safely.

        It was a wonderfully challenging adventure! And lonely at times. Very few ran the full. But a great mix of trail types. I’m working on a race report.
