April started off strong as I ramped up to my half marathon mid-month.  I trailed off a bit after that, but I am planning to challenge myself throughout May with daily ab and squat workouts.  I also signed up for a 10k in mid-June so I want to work on improving my stamina and speed for that race.  Here's a look back at April...

The last couple of weeks, I really took some time to relax and rest.  I know I have to get back after it in May though. Finally, the weather is cooperating, and I have lots of great plans for a successful month ahead!

  1. Rest is important to! It looks like you're doing great.

  2. You go girl! I like how you tracked everything for the month. The good weather should probably help you keep on rockin' it in May :)
