First of all, I want to thank all of you for the congrats and well wishes for my first triathlon. I spent a lot of the 3 hour car ride home Sunday replaying the events of that morning in my head; thinking of how I could train differently, more efficiently, and when I will participate in the next one! There is a triathlon in my hometown the 8th of June that I am seriously thinking about doing. It would be all outdoors. But, I am afraid the water might be a little chilly still...
With the start of April, it's time to look back on March's numbers. I thought all looked good, despite the fact that I was sick twice during the month.
OSN: 5150M (last month was 6300M... this will increase in April)
OCN: 58.76 miles (last month was 42 miles... better, but not super)
ORN: 38.84 miles (compared to last month's 39.45 miles.... not too peachy but will do)
GOALS FOR APRIL:
OCN: 65 miles
ORN: 50 miles
I hate spending the first day of the month resting, just as much as I hate spending the last day of the month resting. I feel like they are opportune days to either finish the month strong or start a month off on the right foot. What did I do? I took a rest day, both on the last day of March and first day of April. I had a terrible migraine and just wanted to lounge. I can do that the 2nd day after a triathlon, right?
So, today I had no excuse. The temperature was near 50, the sun was shining and there was a little bit of wind but it didn't bother me! It felt like one of those runs that was over before it ever started. I probably could have gone longer, but my goal was at least 3 miles and I was starvin'. No more 2 mile runs for me. I am going to try and keep all runs above 3 miles. The weather is getting nicer and I just can't resist getting out there!
ORN: 3.59 miles
47 degrees, sunny, 10-20 mph wind gusts
9 more days and I will be in sunny ArIzOnA!!
