March is behind me

Now I can look forward to April and anticipate the exciting changes and fun times to come this month. My final day at my old job is the Friday followed by 2 weeks off and Boston Marathon, which I will be running pain free. I also have plans to get my 3rd tattoo during this time and get together with some friends to enjoy my time off.

Looking back at March I think I managed pretty well despite the leg injury. The upside was the amount of cross training, but the downside was the lack of running miles, but I feel mentally trained for anything!
  • 138 miles run including an 8K race
  • Bike 13 hours 45 min including a 2 hour spin class with 1000 other people
  • Strength training 2-3x week
  • Elliptical 12 hours 45 min which I have decided is way too much...BORING!
  • 1 swim and 1 pool running
  • Pilates 1x week
Looking back I can't complain and think I am doing pretty well adapting to no running. Good news is I remain pain free. So far 12 days off running and hope to be back by this weekend for a few easy miles.

  1. Wow! 12 miles on the elliptical is too much, I agree! :) But awesome that you could get in so much cross training. Hope your weekend run is pain free!
