Oh February, you were a month of little running, massive snow storms (3 in 7 days) and some adventures with our girls. My focus in February was to keep things simple which I feel I accomplish. I did have some smaller goals:
Run 50 km
Ba ha ha ha!!!! I was no where near 50 km and this is how I feel about it:
I’m 100% fine with not running 50k and just laughing at myself. I was so desperate to get back to consistent running that I set a simple goal of 50k. I’m not sure when it happened but I just didn’t feel the need to meet my goal. The 23 km that I did run were great and I know I have many more months to get in my running miles.
Weekly Yoga or Barre class
I didn’t make it to any Barre classes but managed two yoga classes. One day when I got home from work I was taking my yoga mat out of my car and my oldest daughter said “yoga or barre class, Mom?” I laughed and said that I went to yoga class. I love that she interesting in what I’ve been up to.
Take advantage of the snow:
The plan was to cross country ski, downhill skiing, snowshoe, skate and just play outside with my kids. We did manage to play outside a lot: downhill skiing with the girls one day, snowshoeing during our big dump of snow and skating at the Oval with the girls. No cross country skiing and time is limited with all the snow melting.
I also had 4 soccer games (speed work), cycling twice (for 40 minutes each) on my new trainer and went bowling with the family. My arm hurt for a few days after.
In a completely other area of my life – after having a lose tooth for two months, Lilly pulled out her tooth on National Tooth Fairy Day (Feb 28th)!!!! She was SO determined to pull her tooth out the other night. There were a few tears, some laughter, a few “take my photo Mom” and pure happiness once it was out!
Okay March….we’re going to get a long just fine. I’m a little disappointed that mother nature has allowed for all the snow we got in February to melt away so I’m still hoping for a little more snow to come.
The plan this month is to:
- Increase days per week of running.
- Continue with soccer, yoga and barre.
- Ski as many times as we can (hello melting snow).
My goals are pretty basic but something to work towards and maybe accomplish or not. I think once I get signed up for a race I’ll be more focused on running and following a training plan again.
How was your month of February?
Do you have any goals for March?
Any fun weekend plans?
