Sadly, CR and I did not win the Mega Millions over the weekend. I saw an article this morning about how the winners won’t be “that rich”. Not that rich compared to who? LOL.
This month, I took off-season to a whole new level on the running front. I didn’t have much on the training schedule and took full advantage. I have a lot more tennis in my life right now which I am enjoying but I can definitely tell that I took time off. I can’t seem to make shots like I used to so am hoping all that will come back soon! I played tennis 10 times in March so I guess that is where my free time for running went.
Running Miles: 24.6 miles.
Cycling Miles: 126 miles. Finally getting outside for riding which is nice. Sometimes it is just easier to cycle indoors when you are pressed for time. I feel like I gain more skills riding outdoors so hopefully I can keep getting in some great outdoor rides this month!
Swimming Yardage: 20,309. (it is an odd number because I swim in a 25m pool and the program I use to log my workouts coverts the meters to yards)
Races: Atlanta Women’s 5k. Fun event, great volunteers (Hi Dad & Rita) and a cute race shirt! :)
What I did to bust out of my comfort zone: I did a 5000m charity swim earlier in the month with a new tri group and then rode with a meet up group last week.
What I am watching: Love GCB and Smash. At this point I am invested in Alcatraz because I have watched from the beginning but they might be losing my interest.
What I am reading: Catching Fire. Book two of the Hunger Games. (technically listening to it on my runs of which there haven’t been many so it is taking a while.). Reading I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella. Super light chick lit. If you have read her other books, this one is outside of the Shopaholic series but has a similar style to it.
Current excitement: Looking forward to the Dirty Girl Mud Run later this month. Also looking ahead to Iron Girl in May.
What I am loving this month: I love that everyone seems to be kicking off tri season this month. Following all the races online and reading your updates is really getting me back in the mood to get things moving again!
My favorite product this month: Coppertone Continuous Spray Sunscreen I burn with the best of them and have tried every sunscreen out there. This one works and you don’t have to rub it in. Spray on and done. It won’t make you smell all coconutty and tropical but you won’t look like a lobster either.
What is going on in April:
- Tony Cerrano Metric Century, April 7
- One Can Ride, Metric Century, April 21
- Dirty Girl Mud Run, April 28
