Eh…

That about sums up my April. I started it out with a badly needed cutback week. Then, less than a week into good training, came down with a cold that wiped me out badly enough to interrupt my training. Toward the end of the month, I got some bad hip/groin tightness that messed with my training again. In between all of these things, I did have some good training but it was way too frequently interrupted. I also had to skip my one planned April race. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a May race that fits my schedule and catches my interest so I may train through May and look toward June for races.

My final numbers were 240 miles in 29 runs. Not bad but also not good.

The good news is that I got a foam roller and it seems to be making quick work of rehabbing this groin/hip tightness. It's creating soreness in other places but I think that's a matter of muscles just needing time to get loosened up. I was getting really tight and knotted up in a lot of places and I'm going to have to go through some aches and tenderness on the way back to full health. I cautiously did a tempo workout today with zero groin pain and only moderate soreness in other places.
