I can’t believe March is over already…
So here’s how things went:
The weather was fickle – there were warm days and then there were cold days. There were even rainy and windy days. I was still able to run 2-3 times each week – mostly after work.
There was a half marathon. Then I immediately started preparing for my next half marathon. So I continued to run higher mileage on the weekend.
86 miles this month!
Less than last month but about average for me.
I ran THREE races this month – a 5k, a 5 miler and a half marathon.
I was happy with how they all went. I did not have PR goals and of course, they could have been faster but the shorter races were the first part of a long run. And the half marathon had hills which I had not trained for.
I continued to play tennis one night a week until my tennis elbow flared up.
I DID NOT go to a single yoga class!! I planned to but something usually got in the way. Next month, I promise! (Wait, I said that last month!!)
I continued to walk at work (around the building and to Starbucks or the park). I have also started going to the mall to get more steps in on days when the weather is lousy.
I went to the gym once. It was not so bad but now my elbow is my excuse.
I met my GOTR running buddy. Her name is Jayme and she is in 5th grade. We will be corresponding through notes and then I run both the practice 5k and the real 5k with her. She is very cute and it should be fun.
I ran twice with the Freihofer Challenge Training group. My “advanced” group friends signed up again. There are also some new runners. I have enjoyed it so far.
I am still working on that scarf. It is very long. Someday I may finish it and start something new.
I’ve gotten back into reading. Finished this book:
Feeling healthy so Life Is Good.
The place where I work is participating in the Million Mile Month for the month of April. I plan to walk/run 100 miles.
I am training for another half marathon in April. It’s another hilly but scenic one. I am looking forward to the lake views not necessarily the hills.
I have been busy signing up for spring races. This is my list so far for the next 2 months:
- 4-03-16 – Delmar Dash 5 miler

I signed up to be a STEM volunteer. I will be running with the group on Wednesdays after work.
No monthly goals.
Since it is Thursday, I’m linking up today with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud Thursday.
Happy Running! How did your March turn out? Anything exciting planned for April? What are y0u thinking about this Thursday?
