March Recap & April Goals

March was a month of determination and pushing myself further than I've been. To be honest, I was very happy with what I saw and did despite the circumstances. I was on pace to take off a lot of the off pace miles but about a week and a half ago, the ankle thing happened and that has me gimping around still. Obviously I have not been able to run and get the miles so I wore my pedometer throughout the day. That has helped my sanity knowing that I am not getting too far behind pace.

To any of you that have given me an award - I will try to make some time this week to post those and I also want to give a few shout-outs to my readers throughout this next month. We'll see how time goes.

April Goals

  • Get to OneDerland! 6 more pounds and I'm in the one hundreds for the first time since high school.
  • Go one week without any soda. I drink one sprite a day and I enjoy that but I want to see how I do without that daily sugar.
  • Perform 1,010 push-ups. Yeah. I said 1,010. That's roughly 33-34 a day.
  • Continue to prepare for the 5k that takes place in early May. I'll walk it if I have too - I was training for it and was doing well...20+ minutes running at a comfortable pace with easy breathing. I just want to complete it now.
  • Reach 110 readers on the blog.
  • Learn how to do pull-ups. I seriously stink at these.
  • April Mile Goal [incl. Apr (82.8) & off pace(43.07)]: 125.87
These are my goals. These can happen.
