I ran 86 miles in March. I mostly felt like I was making a decent comeback. Toward the end of the month, I started having some more pain. It’s typical. I guess I just need to get used to it.
I have officially registered for the Cellcom half marathon in May. I’ve worked my long run up to 8.5 miles. I am hoping to attempt 9 miles this week and see how things go. My guess is that I will need another injection prior to that race.
I have a couple races scheduled for April. The first is a family 5K and the second is a marathon relay I’m doing with some people from tae kwon do. None of them are going to require me to be exceptionally speedy, but they should be a lot of fun. I will also be volunteering in the medical tent at the Oshkosh half and full marathon. I will get to see my friend finish her very first half marathon! I am very excited for her.
The beginning of March, I had my first tae kwon do belt promotion. I got my high white belt and started learning my new form. I am absolutely loving tae kwon do. I’m not as scared of sparring as I was at the beginning. Of course, I get hurt almost every time and end up with really nice looking bruises.
Everything is going well on the work front. I am still learning something new every day. I still get massive anxiety when I am on call. My colleagues keep telling me that it takes 1-2 years until I will feel completely comfortable. I question whether it will take longer than that. But, I love my job. I feel so lucky to have found a job that I really enjoy. I like the people I work with. I like the work that I do. I am so blessed.
I’m looking forward to doing my races in April. I will also turn another year older. I’m hoping that the weather warms up a bit and I can get my bike out of the basement. I think a bike ride with Jaden would be a lot of fun.
Does anyone else have races coming up? What are you looking forward to?
