Miles: 73.74 miles
Ragnar Trails Atlanta
Girls on the run 5k
Highlight of the month: Feeling back in the grove after a weird March. I'm starting to up my mileage and train more purposefully, which is important given my summer plans!
Not so Highlight of the month: My blue Asics now have well over 500 miles on them and I badly need to replace them (there is foam showing). It seems my laziness has caught up with me. Time for some shoe shopping.
ABSolutely Awesome April Challenge:
ABSolutely Awesome April challenge went really well. I will be honest, I didn't complete everyday this month, but I completed most days and got use to including more core work in my daily workouts. My core strength has noticeably improved. I enjoyed the 30 day challenge format and will come up with another one for June. As a maintenance goal, I'm hoping to continue to average completing core work 3 days/week. How did everyone else do?
Fun clip of the month:
The World Record in the Beer mile was broken this month with the first sub-5 minute mile. I adore how nerdy this man's preparation was and seriously he took it.
Things I am looking forward to next month: I only have one race planned for next month and it is a 5k. Not my favorite distance by any means, but it takes place at a brewery! So, I might like this 5k.
How did your month shape up? Is it still Spring where you live or has Summer descended on your city?
