I figured it would be easiest to just lump all of my remaining mileage for the past week and a half together with this review since I was totaling up all of my April stats anyway.
Not to shabby, right? With two weeks of marathon taper and then a week+ of recovery, I felt like my mileage was really low but after reconciling everything, it isn’t as low as I expected. Cool!
Another new month is upon us and while I’ve felt a little out of my groove the past two weeks (blamed on said marathon recovery and travel), I’m ready to focus on my next marathon training cycle. I have yet to figure out my plan but have a few ideas swirling about, including more speed training! Regardless, I’m excited to jump in and get to work!
Bring on May!!!
