My hurdle last month was just the stomach flu. I have implemented a good training system that allows me to get my runs done and to have fun doing them. My piriformis muscle is continuing to get better but needs the constant attention and awareness. I have noticed that if I skip stretching, it begins to nag me a bit. I continue to love and use my foam roller.
In April I purchased a new pair of running shoes, which continue to be enjoyable. I am still eager to see how they hold up and what their impact will be on my muscles and individual biomechanics.

I stayed with the iSkin duoband. I just need to add a bit more Velcro but I love that I can still use my iPod functions through the protective shield and it is pretty comfortable.

- Mental training. I need to continue to find the joy in running when obstacles get in the way.
- Finding time to be with my family when training time increases.
