Can anyone else believe it is May already? April really flew by for me with so much going on! I am excited to finally be moving into the warmer months, and there are lots of fun things coming for the rest of the spring and summer! For now, it’s time to pause and look back at how April went.
You can read my other monthly recaps so far here:
-If you have read any of my other recaps or been following my blog for a bit you may already know that I am not on track for many of my goals. But that is ok; I have shifted my priorities for now and those goals can be reached one day, just maybe not this year.
-I am continuing to work on getting stronger and healthier. Between PT and an FMS screening through my chiropractor, my weak areas have really been brought to light.
-I don’t think I planked 5 days a week in April- maybe just during the first few weeks. However, I still do them 2-3 days a week and I am doing other core work other days throughout the week. It’s good to change things up!
-This month I read “Running Strong” by Jordon Metzl and started incorporating his Iron Strength workout into my weekly routine when I can. It’s really nice that I can do burpees, squat jumps, etc. now without worrying about upsetting the downstairs neighbors!
-I kept up with swimming even once I started running again, but after I moved it hasn’t been happening. I am still figuring out the gym situation. Also, Rob and I share a car and drive in to work together so I need to be mindful of his schedule.
April 2015 Stats and Highlights
Total miles: 47- still much lower than usual for me, but a nice improvement from the 16 I did in March.
Best run: This one.
Favorite non-running activity: I have been really enjoying taking Body Pump and CX WORX classes lately. I can really feel my glutes working from those types of workouts!
Most popular blog posts: Since I cut back quite a bit on blogging this month, I am only going to share the top 3:
Biggest Accomplishment: Getting discharged from PT maybe? Even though I wasn’t 100%, I was still told to go ahead and start building up my mileage slowly again. However, I am still working closely with a chiropractor.
Set-backs and struggles: I spoke about this a few weeks ago, but the transition to living in my new house was a bit challenging. Not necessarily in a bad way, but it was definitely a struggle and took some adjusting.
Things I’m looking forward to in May: My friend’s bachelorette party weekend (wine tasting!!), enjoying some relaxation at our new house, and hopefully spending alot of time out in the sunshine and warmer weather!
What was the best part of April for you?
