March Mileage & April Goals

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.

March Goals:

  • 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!

April Goals:

  • 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?

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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).

  4. 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.
