The first quarter of 2018 is complete!  Now that we’ve entered April, it’s time for me to review my progress in March and see how I plan to move forward!

I’m linking up with MarciaPatty, and Erika for Tuesdays on the RunSusieDebbieLora, and Rachel for the Running Coaches Corner and AnnmarieNicole, and Jen for Wild Workout Wednesday!

March Running Goals Recap

We made it through March!  What a long, crazy month full of random snow storms almost every week!  This was my highest mileage month EVER with just a little over 135 miles, amazing!  Here are the goals that I set for myself for March:

  • Write in my Training Journal immediately post-workout:  Grade:  F.   For whatever reason, I just could not commit to this goal.  It seemed that I did an even worse job than usual, sometimes ending up 3-4 days behind.  I got more consistent at the end of the month, but I still think an F is appropriate.
  • Minimize stress and improve time management:  Grade:  C.  I’m doing my best to improve in this area, but March was just so darn busy.  I’m trying to do a better job of delegating wedding responsibilities so at least that stress can die down.  I think April is when I’ll really see if these few changes will make a difference.
  • Perform daily injury prevention activities:  Grade:  B-.  I haven’t been doing as many exercises as I should, but I am definitely improving in this area.  It’s definitely becoming more of a priority and routine!

  • Religiously perform every single injury prevention exercise.  As I’ve been mentioning over the past several weeks, it’s time for me to really take my prehab seriously if I want to be able to get through the marathon!  I have EXTRA motivation now to make sure I do everything I can to be healthy for race day!
  • Use Hello Fresh to stay on top of cooking healthy meals.  I’m really excited that I finally took action when it comes to my meal planning anxiety by signing up for Hello Fresh.  So far, we’re enjoying the meals and I will definitely continue to use it as a tool to keep us on top of healthy eating!  PS – you can save $40 on your first box with my referral code!
  • Complete the New Jersey Marathon strong and with a smile!  Do I have a time goal for my second marathon?  Nope!  While I definitely want to do better than the Philadelphia Marathon, more than anything I want to finish this race knowing that I executed my plan as best as possible and with the appreciation that I can do hard things!  I’ve already started to visualize myself running across the finish line, and I want it to be a joyful experience.  I’ve worked so hard and I can’t wait to see it all come to fruition….just a few more weeks!

How did you do in the month of March?  What are your running goals for April?
