Have you ever got to the last day of a month and had a bit of a reality check that the next month is the following day? I mean, you know the month is ending and a new one is starting but you just can fathom that the next day is March…no longer February! That’s how I felt last week.
February was a very active and busy month and I managed to hit all my goals!
Plank Every Day – DONE, DONE and DONE! Though this was a good challenge, I found myself annoyed some nights when I had forgotten to do my plank. I’d crawl out of bed, plank and then go to bed. 28 days of planking accomplished!
Stronger Hips/Obliques: Definitely worked hard at this one and have passed a few tests at physio but still have to work at this one to get back to 100%.
Cycle 100 km: WOOHOOO, I did it! 105.98 km for the month. I was kinda hoping to do more then that and could have but my schedule just didn’t align to make it happen. I’d love to cycle 1000 km this year and really though it was doable until I realized in the summer months I might not be able to pull off 100 km outdoors. I’m still going to work towards my 1000 km and see what I can pull off.
Ski, Ski, Ski: We got in four trips to the local ski hill. Three with the girls and one by myself on my lunch break. Yeah, I went on my lunch break after a meeting I had nearby was scheduled right before lunch. You don’t miss an opportunity like that, do you?
Olympics: We watched a tone of Olympics and then had Olympic withdrawl. My girls woke up a few days after the Olympics and asked if they could watch it, ha! Poor girls! They loved learning about new sports and watching the athletes compete. Only a week or so until the Paralympics starts!
With a great month behind us, I had not really thought about what I wanted to do in March. I knew I wanted to get in another great month of cycling and start to increase my running but other then that, no great plans or goals.
For March, I’m going to keep it slightly simple. The girls and I are off for March Break and I’m planning to do a few different activities with them. Reading a book is actually a real challenge for me. Not because I can’t read or don’t enjoy it, I just don’t make time for it….and I can’t read while I run on a treadmill or ride my bike like I can watch TV.
Running 50 km will be a good challenge for me since I really haven’t been running much. I’m hoping I can keep up my cycling as part of cross training for my half marathon. Let’s see what March brings!
Did you reach all your goals in February?
Do you have any goals for March?
Tuning into the Paralympics next week?
