2017: March Running

I have just one word for March’s weather: bipolar!  One day I could run in a tank top and be sweaty in minutes, and the next day it’s chilly and rainy, and then the next day it’s warm and windy.  CRAZY weather.  I ran 3 miles last night to finish with 90 miles for March!  You can check out the recaps for January and February.

I cycled 3 times in March, and had some solid miles on the bike.  I’ve been enjoying the cycle classes lately, they’ve been pushing me out of my comfort zone, and I’m happy to have Chris with me on occasion too.

Like I said above, the weather is crazy. I ran 5 miles with Amy on one Wednesday and it was chilly enough for vests and ear coverings, and then on that Saturday, Chris and I ran long and I was in a tank top and super sweaty! Crazy weather.  I had several long runs in March, with a 7 miler one weekend, 9 another weekend, and 10 last weekend.

Chris and I also explored the trails at Shawnee Mission Park, which was great cross-training, and a nice change of pace for a “recovery” after one of our long runs.  We hope to continue going out to the trails to explore and hike every now and then.

My ankle has been doing better since I sprained it at the beginning of February. It still gets kind of puffy after long runs, and I still have some sharp pain near my pinky toe, especially after running, but it’s getting better!

I was thrilled to meet up with Erica and run 10 miles last weekend on the paved trails by Leawood City Park.  It had been a couple years since I’d seen her last; she was one of my karate buddies from back in the day.

Looking ahead to April: I have 2 races, Rock the Parkway Half Marathon, next weekend, and then at the end of the month, the Trolley Run 4 miler.  How was your March?
