April is my birth month. Which means it is a badass month. For the most part, April tends to be pretty OK when it comes to weather. I am going to conquer April this year!
But first, let's see how I did with March:
As for my steps, I am proud to say I hit my goal of 10,687 steps daily every single day. I know it's a random number, but my Jawbone suggested it after I was hitting 10K pretty regularly. Unfortunately, I don't know how to get a monthly chart from my Up app. If and when I do get a monthly recap I will post it here.
I didn't get as much midweek running in as I would like which stinks but with it staying lighter later I think I might start aiming for evening runs.
And now for April.
I turn thirty-five this month, something that is making me feel a little weird and wonky. Mid-thirties, huh? Yikes. Every time I start to feel a little icky about a birthday I think about the scene in Friends when Rachel turns thirty and makes Tad come out of the bedroom and tell the rest of the friends a list of rules about how to celebrate her birthday. I feel ya, Rachel.
I am running my first half-marathon of the year on April 18th. And possibly my second half-marathon of the year on April 25th. We will see how I feel after this week's long run.I had dreams of a PR in my half this year, but probably not for this race. As for the half on the 25th, I would be doing that for fun, to support a great local group, and to qualify for Half Fanatics. It's a cheap half marathon, only $40, so it would be worth it if I could qualify. Plus, I ran the 5K for this race series last year and it was fun, well run, and near my mom's house. Gotta love free baby-sitting!
And by the end of this month I plan on being in Onederland. It WILL happen.
How about you? Any fun goals or races planned?
