Well, we’ve reached the halfway point of March (a little over, but I was on travel the beginning of this week). I figured I’d better check in on my progress with the #100milesinMarch challenge.
I am happy to report that I have logged 73 miles so far this month. SEVENTY-THREE MILES!! I’m averaging about 30 miles a week. That’s a huge step up for me. I’ve got some of the normal aches and pains, mostly in the form of achy knees but I’m feeling pretty great for the most part. I’m taking care of my knees by foam rolling, stretching, and anti-inflammatory meds when needed. My endurance has greatly improved. I feel like a 6 miler is a warm up. Ha! And I’ve actually lost a couple of pounds as an added bonus. But, I’m also hungry ALL OF THE TIME. It’s difficult to not grab a huge hamburger and fries and shove it into my mouth every day (well, OK, I did that ONE day). I’m getting excited for my race on Saturday! I think this challenge has kept me focused and helped prepare me for my first post-baby half marathon.
