April Mileage and May Adventures

As each month passes this year, I am blown away at how fast it is happening. It might have something to do with two little girls that are growing like weeds and also up to lots of adventure, who knows! Well, it’s now May and I have a race coming up! Before I get to that, here is how April went.

April, Twenty Six-teen.

My goals for April were to enjoy half marathon training and get better sleep.

Well, I’m definitely enjoying my half marathon training and now into week 6. I ran 93 km this month, went to 3 yoga classes and did 4 IronStrength workouts.

I’ve started to grasp running 400’s on the treadmill and am still sorting out tempo runs but feeling like I’m on the right track. I’ve struggled a lot with my SI joint but that seems to be getting back on track with all the foam rolling I’m doing. I didn’t once make it to GoodLife Fitness Gym but it’s also located in Halifax and I am not. Maybe next month as I do enjoy hitting up the gym.

As for the sleep, I’d give myself a B- as I started off the month really good and then sort of started to fail. It’s really hard to get everything done (work all day, stuff with girls, dinner, dishes, laundry, running/workouts, shower, dog stuff, husband working) before 10 PM which is my goal for getting to bed early.

Since Friday’s are my official “rest days” from running, I’m usually in bed at 9 PM just to catch up on sleep. Yes, I lead a crazy Friday night! I’m not going to lose sleep over it (haha!) but I’m aiming to be in bed by 10 PM each night.

May Happenings:

  • Training for Johnny Miles Half.
  • Try to hit up GoodLife Fitness when I’m in the city.
  • Running 10k at the Bluenose Marathon in Halifax.
  • Both girls are running the 2k Youth Run at Bluenose 🙂
  • Outdoor adventures: biking, hiking and maybe evening dipping toes in some water.
  • Blog more than once a week!

I’m hoping May is a month spent mostly outdoors (when not at work or sleeping), good runs/workouts, time with family and friends and enjoying life. Pretty simple really.

How was your month of April?

Any big plans for May? 

What are you most looking forward to this month? Me, warmer weather.
