February was a month with lots of adventures; running, snowshoeing, skiing, skating with my family and yoga classes. It was also the month of lots of head colds, sicks kids and sleepless nights.
Though I’m trying to build my base or maintain some fitness before I start half marathon training; running wasn’t high on my priority list this month. I love snow. I love skiing in it, snowshoeing and playing outside with my girls. Unlike last year, we’ve only had a few minor storms (15-25cm each storm) which would provide an opportunity to “play” in the white stuff. After a week or two the temps have warmed up only to melt much of the snow away. It was plus 17C yesterday…in FEBRUARY!!!
Winter Outdoor Play
February was the month of playing outside (when not working of course). I managed to ski a fair amount with my family, friends and on my own. I don’t often take time off work to do something for myself unless I’m really sick but I booked two days off this month. One, to go skiing by myself and run errands in the afternoon and the second day was with a good friend who I don’t get to see very often. Both worth it!
We took the girls skating, Hilary for the first time and got to enjoy a lot of weekend snow storms. The girls absolutely love tobogganing and just playing around our yard.
Running was better then previous years, last year some how I managed to log 41 km while being injured, this year 55 km. With the mixture of outdoor play, some running and even with the lack of motivation to run, February was still a great month.
Yoga’s been great. I’ve been craving each week and trying to get to at least one class. Sometimes I struggle at it, sometimes it’s easy and sometimes I hurt A LOT the day after.
What’s Up In March?
Well, first off things are changing (will tell you more later) around our house for the better. I’m hoping to get in a few more skiing days/nights, increase my running mileage and START half marathon training for Johnny Miles.
Of course continue yoga class when my schedule permits. I am also taking off “March Break”since Lilly will be off school that week. We have some fun adventures planned and a few local trips.
How was your February?
Any BIG plans for March?
