Tuesday's topic for the linkup was grade April, but I still had two running days left before April 1st, and I wanted to talk about the whole month. I finished up the month with two treadmills runs since my calves have been cranky. As much as I wanted to be outside, I played it safe. I wanted to take it slower and be able to step off if I needed to. I'm happy to say my run Tuesday was 3.1, and my run yesterday was 4.5! My hope is to continue that progress outside.
My March mileage was 36.05, and I met my goal of wanting to exceed my February mileage. Since I had taken multiple rest days in February, I wanted to be diligent and not skip as many. I did take an extra rest day for my calves, and I skipped another because I needed a mental break.
March was also when I started missing weight work. I love the Pure Barre classes, and they are certainly a challenge, but I'm wanting to branch out now. I'm getting more Pure Barre DVDs, but I'm also looking into signing up with a personal trainer once I'm at my new address in a couple weeks. It would mean joining a gym, and I haven't had a gym membership for almost 2 years. I'll miss the convenience of the fitness room.
I did have a scare in March, when my calves were super tired, and it felt like my left ITB wanted to join the party. To say I'm paranoid right now would be an understatement. My left leg has been my good leg, and now I'm taping both legs to be safe. The training has been going well, and I really, really, really, REALLY don't want another injury.
The Bolder Boulder is 60 days from yesterday! I keep thinking I have less time to finish training than I really do, and the 60-day social media post reminded me I have more time to build.
