April is Done!

The hardest month of my fitness journey is done! If you’ve been following along with my blog for the last little bit, you might’ve heard about my recent injury. Needless to say, it’s been tough to navigate. Despite that, I still got some decent mileage in, some great workouts, and wrote about some pretty cool stuff. Here’s what the month of April looked like for me:

Total Mileage: 45.7mi

This definitely had the potential to be higher if I hadn’t injured my knee. That being said, I think this is still pretty good. I found some cool trails and started to get the hang of taking gels and chews while on the run.

I also mastered the art of selfie-ing mid-run!

Best Performing Blog Post: Half-Marathon No Longer

It sucks that I had to write that post, but it’s good to share not only all the good stuff that happens with running and weight lifting, but all the bad as well.

Favourite Product This Month: Clif Shot Energy Gels

Week 7 1

Like jam in a packet.

Favourite Strength Training Exercise: Although it’s a part of my abbreviated leg day, I love doing lying leg curls. It’s a great way to work your hamstrings, and you can do it unilaterally or isolaterally.

Worst Thing That Happened This Month: My meniscus tear. *insert crying emoji here*


How was the month of April for you guys? Anything exciting happen?

  1. April was pretty good for me. it’s starting to get warm (although rainy) in Minnesota but it was pretty busy between half marathon training and getting ready for the wedding. I had an awesome last long run before my half so I’m ready to race in four days!

    • I have to take it reeeeeaally easy. I’ve been trying to run just two miles at super low intensity, but the impact is too much at the moment. I did the elliptical today for a half hour and it felt pretty good, so at least I can do some form of cardio.

  2. HI, I am so sorry to hear about your injury! The older I get the less patience I have for being hurt, and the easier it is to get injured (oh ya, and it takes longer to heal when your old too!). Hang in there, at least there are other forms of exercise you can do while you are rehabbing 🙂
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking it out!
