Spring has sprung! With warmer temperatures and tons of rain, everything exploded into green in the past couple of weeks. But I’m ready for all the rain to stop. Seriously. stop.
It’s a new month so that means new goals and checking in on how badly I did on last months goals. I kids, I kid. Let’s take a look at my March goals:
1.) PT exercises every night: (B-) I would venture to say have been doing them four times a week, but good news is I had no hip pain at my 10k so hopefully they are working and I can be done with the hip pain!
2.) PR at the Crescent City Classic: (A-) I’m giving this one an A- because while I did PR at the race, it wasn’t the PR I wanted/knew I had in me. I hate humidity, it ruins all the races! Still happy I was able to break a three year old PR.
3.) Daily devotions: (B-) Again, I have gotten way better, but still not doing this daily. I think I missed two days last week. But going to small group Bible study during the week helps a lot!
4.) Finish boot camp strong: (B+) Boot camp ended the 24th, and I skipped the last day due to some other stuff going on, but other than that I would say I finished pretty strong. We start another two month session TODAY, so here is to getting stronger and faster!
Now let’s move on to April goals:
1.) Continue PT exercises: The reason my hip started hurting again is because it got better so I STOPPED doing my exercises, so I don’t want that to happen again!
2.) Read one book: I haven’t read any books since our cruise in January and I miss it!
3.) Give away or sell items: While I have gotten rid of a lot of stuff in the garage, there is still a pile of things I need to sell, and then donate the rest. Spring cleaning time!
4.) Keep a running base of six miles: Now that it’s getting warmer and we are moving in 5k season, it’s tempting to only run two and three miles at a time, but then when fall comes I am not prepared for half marathons again, so I would like to keep a consistent six mile base all summer, even if I just run six miles once a month.
That’s it! I will check back in with you in May (omg, MAY! Where is the year going?) to see how I am doing.
QOTD: What is a goal you have for April?

Sounds like you have a great plan to keep up your mileage base during the warmer months. I never like the feeling of “starting over” with my running.
As the weather gets nicer I plan to increase my mileage as well. Hope your weather is less rainy in the coming weeks. I have a feeling our rainy season has just started!

I like to keep a 6 mile base during the summer too! Makes fall training a little easier! Yay for no hip pain!!! And…what books are you going to read? I need some new ones to read and I know we usually like the same ones!
Have you read the selection series? A new one comes out next month!
