April was a fun month, even though it was kind of chilly and really rainy!
April was a fun month. It started off with a huge 5K PR at a local race series that runs through my neighborhood. It was a lot of fun and I was really excited.
I started taking heart medicine to fix the heart problems I’ve been having over the last few months. It’s been great for my health but very hard for my body to adapt to exercising on the new medicine. I’m starting to notice it getting easier and I’m looking forward to seeing that continue.
I volunteered at the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler and ran the George Washington Parkway Classic 10 Miler. The 10 miler was so hard for me but I was really proud to finish. I know I can only get better at running longer distance!
I started going to boot camp in mid-April. The workouts are tough and leave me really sore. I’m not super in love with the teacher but it’s only a one month class. I know that strength training will help me running so I am trying to learn to embrace it.
