I closed out April with 113.9 miles under my shoes. Not as impressive as some of my TIR teammates but pretty productive for me. Listening to one's body should be a mantra with long distance running, something I don't do too well. I'm going to try to be better at it though. As I close out the month, my left shin has been letting me know that it's there. So, to alleviate any pain problems later on, I am going to take the next week or so a little easier than normal.
April has been pretty good to me. I became faster by notching two 5K P.R.'s. I am now a sub 24 minute runner. Pretty cool. I can now dare to dream of breaking 23 minutes and becoming a 22 minute and something seconds runner. That would be awesome.
