March Miles and Goal Check In

Happy first day of April!!!

Seriously though, wasn’t it just the first day of February like, 2 days ago?? πŸ˜‚

These last few months have just been flying by! My first race of 2019 is almost here! I almost can’t believe it! I’m getting pretty excited though! I don’t have any expectations for this race whatsoever, because it’s my first trail race, it’s at altitude, and I’m running it with my dad. That being said I actually feel pretty ready for it, even though I’ve literally done 0 trail running to prepare. πŸ˜‚

Anyway, I’m just gonna do a quick check in this month since I’m working on quite a few things this year and have already talked about most of them pretty thoroughly in other posts. So, let’s start off with my monthly mileage! 😊

87.92 miles run in March! Whoohoo!! I’m very happy with how my running has been going lately! I’ve really just been putting in the work and grinding it out! Sure it hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows, but for the most part I’ve been feeling great! Getting in some pretty good speed workout, but mostly just getting in the miles. Honestly that is my biggest goal and focus for the year. Being consistent with my mileage and then slowly but surely upping it.

I’ve definitely been on the right track with that! These last two or three weeks have all been over 20 miles of running which is pretty darn good for me! I hit 24 last week and I’m super stoked about that! I’m hoping to hit 25 this week. 😁 After that though I plan on backing off just a bit, since that’ll be a race week. But seriously, I feel like I’m on a real roll right now! I’m currently at 243.46 miles run for the year and if I keep heading in this direction I should hit my goal of 1,000 miles in 2019 without too much trouble! 😊

Most of my other goals for 2019 really just revolve around keeping me healthy and injury free so I can run all of the miles I’m aiming for. πŸ˜‚ Things like doing my yoga (Check!), eating more healthy foods (Check!), getting enough sleep and recovery (check and check!), etc. Obviously that’s all working so far as I haven’t had any issues! That’s quite an accomplishment for this injury prone runner! πŸ˜‰

And of course I’m still focusing on my step goal! Running is one thing, but it can be kinda easy to run in the morning and then not move much for the rest of the day. πŸ˜‚ That’s why I like to have a step goal and to keep track of whether or not I hit it everyday, using the app “HabitBull”.

Hahaha I think it’s pretty obvious that I’ve been taking rest days of Friday’s and Sundays. πŸ˜‰ I’m not super thrilled that I went three days in a row without hitting my goal earlier this month, but after that I was pretty consistent and I’m very happy with that! 😊

Alrighty! I think that pretty much covers everything for a quick little update!

Wishing you a very happy April!
