April Summary and May Goals

So I didn’t quite make 100 miles, but I did come close (93.11 miles)! I ran at least 4 days/week. And I did dip back under 120 but unfortunately it didn’t last. I did end up with a .4 pound loss though! ;)

All in all, it was a good month. I tracked my food more than I had been, but still not daily, and not “every” single bite. So that’s my number 1 goal for May. I’m going back to logging everything at SparkPeople and at Weight Watchers. That’s what got me to goal weight in the first place, so that’s what I always revert back to. I’m also concentrating more on my food choices. I’ve eliminated the little bit of dairy I had been consuming, and the only thing keeping me from being 100% vegan is my coffee creamer. It is non-dairy, but contains casein. I’ve tried all the options, but nothing compares to my beloved Cafe Mocha. I will continue to work on that. Progress, not perfection!

I also want to add in some longer runs. At least a 10-miler, and hopefully a half marathon.  I’m thinking about signing up for the Bucks County Marathon on November 16th. It’s a smaller race that won’t have thousands of people, and it runs alongside the Delaware canal. My only issue is my tummy. I never know when my IBS is going to flare up, and that terrifies me! Sometimes I can’t even make it more than a mile around my neighborhood before “that feeling” overwhelms me :(  Anyways, I’m going to decide by the 16th of this month, as that will give me 6 months to train. There’s also a half marathon there the day before, so that’s an option too.

And now I’m heading back out with Lucy for another walk. It’s a beautiful day, and I can get more mileage in for the #MayMiles challenge at SparkPeople :)

  1. Awesome job, Laura! I haven’t come close to running 100 miles in a month yet, but I hope to get there one day soon! I’m running two big races this summer, and I worry about what my stomach will be like, too. When I get nervous, my stomach acts up, so I’m praying that my bowels will hold out until the end of the race, but if not, I guess that’s what porta-potties are for, right? Oops, TMI! :-D
