  • I think Monday night was the first time in months that all of my students have been able to make it to class! Woo hoo! With summer just around the corner, that will happen less and less. Ha.
  • I took an unplanned rest day on Thursday because of a sore throat. Then I did my speedwork the next day. I had planned 6×400 with some hill repeats on tired legs but my legs and lungs said “NOPE! We need more rest!” so I called it short. On Saturday and Sunday the cold went to my head and chest, so I mostly rested over the weekend.
  • I am happy the cold hit this weekend and not next weekend – I am running a half marathon on Saturday! I’d like to run in under 2:10.
  • Monthly recap time! In April I ran 130.5 miles (25 runs), cycled 45 miles (4 indoor rides) and swam 4,263 yards (4 swims). My coldest run was 34°F and my warmest was 76°F. I taught 9 strength classes, and 3 fitness boxing classes.

    Oh no. I’m sorry you’ve been sick. I wonder if it’s because the weather has been so variable
    , good luck in ur half marathon!

    That’s quite a range in temperature during April! I hope you’re feeling better and that the rest helped out.
