32.88 miles in April

My monthly numbers just keep going up and up. That is 82.88 miles for the year. Chump change for people doing spring marathons or even spring 1/2 marathons, but huge for me!  Getting in 1-2 runs during the week definitely helps with the mileage.

Being a complete number nerd, part of me was tempted to get in 2.12 miles today/this morning to make it an even 35/85, but I ran yesterday morning and it is raining today. Hopefully I'll get in a run tomorrow morning to start off May well.

Tuesday morning my husband had to get up at 4:30 for work (hello people in China), so I figured I might as well get up and run. It was a very, very slow 3 miles - I was still sore from Sunday. I am still trying to figure this more-than-once-a-week running thing out.

Originally I thought I would run Sunday, Wednesday, Friday, but I think I am going to go back to my C25K schedule and do Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. I am okay with a pokey run on Tuesday - I just want me legs to be fresher for the long runs on Sunday. Especially since I think Thursday will eventually be hills/speed, if I ever get the guts up to do it. I did a few strides yesterday towards the end of my run, which were fun, but I am still scared of hurting myself.

The BAA 10K registration opens up tomorrow. A bunch of people are asking me if I am going to do it. It is the day after my obstacle race in June, so I think I am going to pass. Maybe next year I will do the whole distance medly (5K in April., 10K in June, 1/2 in October). I want to do the Tufts 10K this year, which is the day after the BAA 1/2.

So for now, with no real race until June 7 (my first 10K), it is just about doing the miles. I would love to try to get in 12-15 miles a week (3-4 twice during the week, 6-8 on Sunday). I also need to start strength training. May 1 (tomorrow) I am going to start Plank-a-day and few other 30 day challenges to get me going.
