Last week I had a rookie moment…you know that moment when you just shake your head at yourself because you feel like you should know better (and you do).
I started training for my 4th half marathon with a strength training workout last week. It was super hard but extremely effective. The second day had me running 5k but I was off work that day and wanted to go to yoga. I decided I’d go to yoga and run that night…no problem, I can handle a double workout day (so I thought).
I struggled slightly through my yoga class as the night before’s workout left me sore all over…but I did it and felt great. As the afternoon when on my energy level decreased and my desire to run wasn’t there. Honestly, I could barely function I was so exhausted! So, I decided not to run and go to bed early – best decision ever!
As I hit DAY 3 of training I was still super sore from Monday’s workout and hadn’t even ran yet, I felt like such a rookie. My run was great (5 x 400’s) on the treadmill though I messed up and only did 4 x 400’s. Ahh well…one day at a time.
I really can’t believe it’s April already. I’m 100% ready for spring weather, green grass growing and flowers blooming. March was a pretty good month, though busy with work at the beginning. We enjoyed Lilly’s first March break and Saï has been really busy with work…HERE 🙂 We’ve sure been loving having him home at the end of his shift; tucking in the girls for bedtime and for me just being able to spend more time together. I kept up my “building my base” and starting using a training plan for Johnny Miles Half.
As for this month, I’m just wanting to enjoy half marathon training and get better sleep. I need more sleep. Last night I was in bed before 9 PM and didn’t get up until 8 AM when my girls were begging for breakfast (fair enough).
When was your last rookie moment?
How was your March?
Any April goals?
