This post was delayed because last week I had to get my logic board replaced after my computer refused to turn on. Luckily, there was no data loss and hopefully we’ll be right back on track. Here’s a look back at April…
Traveled: To my hometown in suburban Chicago. My mom and I both got laid up with the flu, so it was a low key week.
Read: Circling the Sun, Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking, The Japanese Lover
Listened: To a few episodes of The Runner’s World Show, a podcast hosted by David Willey, editor-in-chief at Runner’s World magazine. It’s a great way to keep updated with gear reviews, training advice, news in the running world, and to hear stories from everyday runners and professional athletes alike.
Ran: 74 miles, 10 more than last month. 13.1 of those were at the Kentucky Derby Festival Mini Marathon. I feel like I’m slowly making a comeback.
Hiked: Casually with friends on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon at the Parklands. Now that spring-which-feels-more-like-summer has arrived, I’m holding on to my intention.
Taught: Less yoga classes than last month, which was a relief. Teaching yoga requires me to give a lot of my energy, but I need to hold on to some of it for myself! I’m currently loving my Thursday evening class at Climb Nulu.
Climbed: Several times this month, and I’m really beginning to enjoy it. This is definitely becoming a new hobby for me. I’m even planning to buy a pair of climbing shoes…that’s how you know it’s real.
