One more month down and now I’m just days away from the Eau Claire Marathon! April was a crazy month for running as we went from spring to winter to summer. Yes, that’s right. We had all our snow melt only to get hit by a blizzard (and two feet of snow) and then we got up to the 80s on the last day of the month.
Mileage went down in April as the last two weeks of the month were taper weeks. But I did get in an 18 mile long run (cut down from 20 due to some hip tightness) and a 20 mile long run on the treadmill. Because you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do when there’s a blizzard in April.
I’ve been feeling really strong at the end of all my runs and I’m feeling super prepared for the Eau Claire Marathon. I’m also looking forward to the Stillwater Half Marathon at the end of May and then taking a break from race training for a little bit.
