I kinda wanted to call this post “Lack of March Mileage & April Goals” but I changed it last minute to stay in tune with other months. In February, I set a few goals for March that I seriously thought I could handle but you can’t always control what’s going to happen in your life, no matter how hard you try.
- Increase days per week of running – Nope.
- Continue with soccer, yoga and barre – Yes, yes and no.
- Ski as many times as we can (hello melting snow) – Yes.
- Register for Spring/Summer Race – Picked a race (Johnny Miles Half – June 18th).
For some reason I didn’t write that last goal on my blog but I did in my running/workout log book so it still counts…you just didn’t know about it 🙂 I don’t feel like I failed at my goals last month but just as my running mojo was starting to come back I got into that dang car accident.
We did enjoy St. Paddy’s Day 🙂
The first half of March was great; lots of soccer, skiing, cycling and yoga. I even had a random night (work related) where I played basketball (not my strength), hula hooping, lacrosse and floor hockey. We had a blast that night.
My horrible penmanship:
Insert the car accident late into the month which put a stop to everything. I took a solid week off everything to recover from the accident. I was able to do a little more cycling towards the end of the month. I’m in physio yet again but for the minor whiplash, along with the occasional massage which has helped a lot! Okay… I’m sharing this one picture of the accident …
Okay, now that’s all done with, I’m moving on. Though I didn’t get back into running as much as I had planned, I feel that I didn’t fail on my goals. You win some, you lose some but as long as you enjoy the ride, you are winning, right!
- Normal life (no accidents, no injuries).
- Start training for Johnny Miles Half – (slow and steady folks).
- Daily yoga and foam rolling.
- Run with my daughters (and husband once his knee is better).
- Dust off my journal….
One thing I’m really looking forward to is Spring weather. I love winter and snow but I’m done with it, time for spring! I’m also loving that it’s still light out at 7:30 pm and really only getting dark around 8 pm. It makes such a difference.
If you missed the other months, check them out here: January, February.
Are you loving the later evenings?
Did you achieve your March goals?
Any April goals you want to share?

I think it is good that you are not pushing yourself too hard through this healing process. I am not liking the later daylight… would so much rather have earlier mornings. Hope April is a great month for you all.
Thanks Elle. I’m hoping this will put me on the right track.
Still so glad that you are ok after that wreck. I passed a wreck today on the highway where the car was l i t e r a l l y wrapped around a tree. I’ve never seen anything like it.
So scary to see that! I hope the person/people are okay but is sounds horrible. I thought the truck was going to roll over but it just bounced back and forth rather abruptly a few times which was still scary.
March running is meant to be all over the place, in my opinion. It’ a crazy month. But I am most definitely looking forward to these longer days. In Michigan in the summer, it can stay light until 10pm. I love sitting on the dock with a glass of wine (maybe not this summer).
That’s my kind of summer too. I’m sure yours will be a little different but special as well!
Always sends chills actually seeing the car crash photos. So glad it wasn’t any worse. Heal fast, can’t wait for Johnny!
I’ve also been utilizing the “take what you can get” approach lately. And what I’ve been getting is nothing. You had a solid month going until the accident! Cheers to a clean April.
