So did anyone get fooled on April’s Fools day? I guess I’m not really too much of a prankster—any good ideas I have seem too mean to actually use. Okay, beyond my regular goal setting and progress update I wanted to set some goals for the whole month of April.
1. Continue training strong for my marathon—complete all long runs and training runs as close to prescribed as possible in my training plan.
2. Strength train twice a week—I’ve been slacking on my strength training and I can tell! I need to make it a priority for the way it makes me feel and look—I miss the tone. Need to get it back.
3. Finish up the rough draft of a project I’ve been working on—my deadline for myself is actually April 15th.
4. Dial in my nutrition—focus on eating clean and and fueling my body effectively for my training using MyFitnessPal and you know, common sense.

I tried an ice bath after my long run last week. It was NOT pleasant, but I think it helped with my muscle soreness and recovery time. I’m going to spend a little more time researching ice baths, but most likely I’ll be doing it again next week.

Notice we are NOT eating at home a lot this week. Which makes it hard to keep my goal number 4 on track, but I’m confident I can do it! I think looking for lots of fruits and veggies to eat will make it easier. I’m also going to do some selective calorie tracking, just to make sure I stay semi on track since it is sometimes I hard to judge the amount of food I need with all my training and especially with all the carb cravings!
