4/27 – 5/2/15 + April Round-Up

I’ve arrived back in Plattsburgh after a wonderful couple of days in Burlington, VT. It killed me to come back knowing that M. is moving on Friday. But at least we had a great weekend and yesterday I got him to run with me!

This week was pretty low on the miles as I was letting my body recover from last weekend’s half marathon. For the most part I felt pretty good, except for a few random aches and pains. I’m ready to get back into the full swing of things this week – especially as finals are starting and I definitely need my stress relief!

Monday-Tuesday: Rest. I went to the gym for a few minutes on Monday to do some weights, but that was it.

Wednesday: 1.82 miles, 9:28 avg pace. I did a quick little loop around campus after class.

Thursday: 4 miles, weights. Had a little soreness in the outside of my right ankle, but it hasn’t come back since.

Friday: Rest…well I walked about a mile to the bar and back 😛


Saturday: 3 miles at work. Running 13 with my two main ladies this Saturday!

Sunday: 4 miles with M. in Burlington. They were hilly and it was hot. Well, only 75, but it was the first hot run of the year. I’ll have to ease into the day time runs and start going out more in the morning/evening again. I was dying at the end and he hardly broke a sweat….

Weekly miles: 12.82. I was hoping for more. I originally planned to do 6-8 yesterday but I was not ready for the sudden heat wave. But I’m feeling great after my race. This week will include more mileage and hopefully a speed workout if I can be disciplined enough to get my studying done.

April round up

In April I….

  • Ran 67.55 miles. A little lower than what I was hoping for, but considering I had many light weeks around races I am okay with it. I have ran 249.95 miles in 2015 so far. A bit behind where I wanted to be but it was a long winter running on the treadmill…
  • Stayed injury free! I really didn’t have any nagging pains for the first time in a since August, really.
  • Ran half marathon #3 in a time of 2:20:52. 9 minutes taken off from last September and a new PR!
  • Ran half marathon #4 in a time of 2:15:35. 5:57 taken off in two weeks and another PR!
  • Kind of failed at the blogging thing. I’ll be much better at it when the semester ends. 12 more days, y’all. 12 more days. 

How many miles did you run in April? Did you run long this weekend?

  1. My favorite part of all of this is where you stayed injury free. That’s AWESOME and I’m jealous of it. 🙂 You had a fantastic April and congratulations on finishing up your semester! Yay for only 12 more days!

    I have no idea what my April mileage was. I should probably look that up.


  2. Yay – that’s awesome you have stayed injury free! I tried to run 12 miles Sunday but ended up stopping at 9 – I forgot running in the sun is not fun when it’s hot outside. Michael ran separately, but I didn’t even know, because he wasn’t even sweating when I got home!


    • I don’t know how our guys don’t sweat. It’s not fair! And props to making it so far in the heat! It will take a few runs to get used to it again.


  3. YAY for your semester almost being over! I finished today and while I’ll still be working in the summer it feels awesome to have some sort of break. You know, I never add up my monthly mileage but I probably should since it takes me forever to calculate it at the end of the year haha.
