March has been a great month with the undoubted highlight being the bright, happy daffodils that are in bloom all over the country! The places I tend to see daffodils are planted on the verges of major roads around Glasgow and every time I see them, especially on my way to work, I’m grateful to Glasgow City Council that they bother!
On the running front:
- March has been my highest mileage month ever: 102.77 miles
- Three long runs over 10 miles
- I finally decided on my races for the first half of 2014 (here)
- I ran my first race, scoring a 58:24 10k PB
- A 5k PB of 27:46
- I didn’t manage any parkrun tourism but volunteered as tail-runner at Victoria parkrun
- I’m still doing the PTTD exercises with the Theraband on a daily basis, though I don’t often achieve three times a day.
And in other news: I baked a cake! It is a while since I made this (or any) cake, in fact I had some left over ground almonds from the last time I made it and sent my sister a text to ask if they were still ok to use although expired in 2011 (you’ll be pleased to know she said probably not).
I’m looking forward to lots more running in April, including the Great Edinburgh Run 10 mile on the 27th April. It will be a good practise run for the Edinburgh Half Marathon in May.
