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?

In February I focused on getting back on track with a consistent workout routine.
Hopefully March will bring better weather!
I’m hoping March is my month to get back into a running routine.
We did not get any snow at all this year! I love to snowshoe and wanted to do it just once
No snow this winter, woah! We sure got enough of it, however it was all in one week.
THAT emoji!! Haha.
Yay for losing a tooth!! I used to “want” to pull my teeth but I could never do it. Gave me the heebie jeebies. And now when my son has loose teeth I get the heebies all over again. Lol!
I tried to pull her tooth out but it wouldn’t come! She just kept wiggling it and then I said it was up to her!
I’m hoping to take advantage of the snow too! We love to ski, but have not made it once this year!! My March goal is to get more sleep and follow my training schedule to a Tee!! 🙂
We just spent the day skiing and it was SO great! More sleep is always good!
I’m envious of your snow! We haven’t had any to speak of since December 17. Crazy! Who knew there was a Tooth Fairy Day? Not I!
I love snow and all the sports we can do when it’s here! I had no idea that there was a tooth fairy day until my mother told me. I actually had to look it up as I thought she was joking!
dying over that emoji! I feel the same way about some of my fitness goals haha
Glad someone else is on the same page as me!
Pretty sure that all that fun in the snow counts as cross training!
No snow here. Since December! WTH?
I’m definitely getting in some good cross training 🙂
I need to get back to some double digit runs. I’ve been slacking so far this year.
Double digits seem so far away for me!
Its tough to get in the mileage when there is snow! We had a mild Feb but now we are back to colder temps in March. Good job with the yoga classes!
It sure is, I’d rather ski and snow shoe!
Despite the shortage of miles, you got in a variety of activities so kudos to you!
Wow, I can’t imagine my daughter being brave enough to pull out her own tooth. She already lost two and expecting to loose a couple in a year or so.
I think I am just really enjoying the variety and not running 4-5 days a week! It’s been a nice change.
I think all that snow play is great cross training! You are just taking advantage of what Mother Nature brought you! 🙂
I think that’s why I’m okay with my low mileage. So many other sports to do right now.
Seems like you got all the weather that we didn’t! Sorry… not sorry 😀
Haha! We had so much snow that one week and now it’s almost gone!
February was meh. Didn’t run or workout quite as much as I would have liked, but it happens.
March, I have a bunch of races, and hoping to fit in some more cross training. Fingers crossed we can make it happen.
I can’t believe how much snow you all had!
Good luck with all your upcoming races!
We had SO MUCH SNOW this year – well, in one week, it was just nuts!
I didn’t know there was a National Tooth Fairy Day! Too bad Mini Me just told us she knew what was up when her last tooth fell out in February.
At least you’re okay with the progress, or lack thereof, that you made last month. Here’s to a much better March!
I had no idea that there was a National Tooth Fairy Day. How perfect is that! I love that you balance everything so well. Some months are meant for more runs than others. I find that once the snow goes away, everything is much easier to do.
