I kinda wanted to call this post “Lack of March Mileage & April Goals” but I changed it last minute to stay in tune with other months. In February, I set a few goals for March that I seriously thought I could handle but you can’t always control what’s going to happen in your life, no matter how hard you try.
- Increase days per week of running – Nope.
- Continue with soccer, yoga and barre – Yes, yes and no.
- Ski as many times as we can (hello melting snow) – Yes.
- Register for Spring/Summer Race – Picked a race (Johnny Miles Half – June 18th).
For some reason I didn’t write that last goal on my blog but I did in my running/workout log book so it still counts…you just didn’t know about it 🙂 I don’t feel like I failed at my goals last month but just as my running mojo was starting to come back I got into that dang car accident.
We did enjoy St. Paddy’s Day 🙂
The first half of March was great; lots of soccer, skiing, cycling and yoga. I even had a random night (work related) where I played basketball (not my strength), hula hooping, lacrosse and floor hockey. We had a blast that night.
My horrible penmanship:
Insert the car accident late into the month which put a stop to everything. I took a solid week off everything to recover from the accident. I was able to do a little more cycling towards the end of the month. I’m in physio yet again but for the minor whiplash, along with the occasional massage which has helped a lot! Okay… I’m sharing this one picture of the accident …
Okay, now that’s all done with, I’m moving on. Though I didn’t get back into running as much as I had planned, I feel that I didn’t fail on my goals. You win some, you lose some but as long as you enjoy the ride, you are winning, right!
- Normal life (no accidents, no injuries).
- Start training for Johnny Miles Half – (slow and steady folks).
- Daily yoga and foam rolling.
- Run with my daughters (and husband once his knee is better).
- Dust off my journal….
One thing I’m really looking forward to is Spring weather. I love winter and snow but I’m done with it, time for spring! I’m also loving that it’s still light out at 7:30 pm and really only getting dark around 8 pm. It makes such a difference.
