Goodbye February, Hello March! We are officially one month closer to SUMMER (my favorite season). The weather is still having a bit of an identity crisis. Today’s high was close to 80 degrees, yet we have a chance of a frozen mix on Friday. Go figure!
Here is a summary of my workouts since my last update:
Tuesday, Feb 21st – Rest Day.
Wednesday, Feb 22nd – Rest Day. I initially planned to run today, but ended up meeting up with a friend and spending some time catching up. Sometimes friend therapy is more important than any workout.
Thursday, Feb 23rd – 3.5 Treadmill miles (9:56 pace).
Friday, Feb 24th – Another beautiful day! Since Steven and I had the day off, we spent the morning walking around Solomon’s Island. We got about 3 miles in before my middle schooler sent me a text telling me she forgot her lunch. Oops! We had to rush home to get it to her during her lunch.
Saturday, Feb 25th – 4 Treadmill miles (9:42 pace). My running days were a bit messed up this week due to the holiday weekend last week. But I was determined to get my ‘scheduled’ miles in so I decided to hit the treadmill before my body pump class. I missed the Wednesday Body Pump class, and my body could tell! Later in the afternoon, Steven and I headed back over to Solomon’s Island with the girls to walk around and feed the ducks. It was another beautiful day!
Sunday, Feb 26th – 5.5 Treadmill miles (9:49 pace).
Monday, Feb 27th – Rest Day.
Tuesday, Feb 28th – 4 Treadmill miles (9:43 pace).
As far as nutrition is concerned, February was not too kind to me. Let’s just say I had my fair share of Valentine’s Day treats and Girl Scout Cookies! My weight was up and down the entire month. I only managed to lose a total of .5 pound. I know I can do better than that! I’d still like to lose about 5 more pounds. Hopefully March is kinder to me than February was.
Running: 48.5 Miles
Body Pump: 5 classes
Yoga: 1 class
Bike: 4 miles
Spin: 1 class
Looking ahead, I have a lot of miles on the schedule for March (67.7 to be exact)! I hope to be up to 9 mile long runs by the end of the month.
And in other running news, there were a couple of familiar faces featured on our local Hospice Race flyer! Lilee loves the fact that she is “famous”!
