Oh February, we weren’t really running friends were we?
I only ran twice outside but managed 27.03 km of running between those two runs and my soccer games. So my legs got in some mileage.
We (family) skied twice, I had three soccer games, we skated outside twice and I made it to three yoga classes.
Though I didn’t run a much, I still had an active month with other winter activities. I also walked my dog 2+km most days of the weeks, so lots of walking.
I’m still far away from signing up for any spring races but think I need to start training to run a 5k or 10k race. At this point a spring half is out the door. And that’s okay.
How was your month of February?
Did you rech any goals?
Spring race fever or “meh” feelings like me?
With no planned mileage for January, I managed some decent numbers. I’m pretty happy with my mileage in January.
I was sick for close to three weeks but plugged through it and tried to keep active. January is usually a very low running mileage month for me, mainly because we are skiing or snowshoeing. Between a few wintery outdoor runs, indoor soccer games, a trip to England with my family, a few ski days and one yoga class, my monthly mileage was pretty good!
I’ve yet to set any goals for the year but I’m working on a list of “things I want to do”.
It’s super cold….everywhere, so its bundle up in layers season everywhere too. I’m hoping to get in a few more outdoor runs in February.
I’m still doing my bullet journal and got a little more colourful in January. Also, I’m currently writing this from my phone and thinking this might be the new way of blogging for me. Quick, short posts sandwiched between some longer posts. We’ll see!
How are you staying warm?
How was your January?
Do you prefer to read quick blog posts or longer posts?
Two for two!!! I’m playing catch up…so you get two posts in two days from me on two different topics. My July goals (and August), then July Mileage!
July goals were super simple:
I ran. I went to the beach. and I biked A LOT.
Running wasn’t high on my list and I dropped my “fun” long runs that I was doing back in June but I managed 55 km of running. We went to the beautiful Brackley Beach in PEI a few times and a local beach as well. I can’t get enough of that beach!
I bike A LOT: 119 km to be exact! I did my longest ever solo ride…well longest ride ever of 40 km! I was kid-less for a day and my husband was working so I decided to see if I could bike 40 k. I ran into a cow – not literally but it was on the trail I was riding my bike on and was rather intensely running towards me. Little did I know that it’s calf had escaped and she was retrieving her from the other side of the trail. I had to wait a while for it to cross over the trail and go back home. I peddle my little legs out and the cow was hiding on the side of the trail!
Again, another simple month! Yes, I realise that it’s the middle of the month and I’m posting my monthly goals but part of the month was spent relaxing…with my family….outdoors…and off social media/blogs. So, I’m basically nailing it this month – ha ha!.
How’s your August going so far?
Any major goals this month or taking it easy ?
What’s one thing you won’t miss from the summer? (Me, the insane humidity).
Though I’m not posting all the time on my blog these days, you can find me over on Instagram – I don’t log out of that app 😉
March brought more variety of activities into my training for a half marathon while slowly increasing my weekly running mileage.
We managed to get up skiing a few times – mainly on March Break and skated a number of times with both girls learning how to skate on their own! I really wasn’t sure how running was going to go with increasing my mileage and still working through this hip/oblique injury – but I’m still moving forward.
- 105 km cycling (met my goal) on my indoor trainer
- 63 km running (met my goal)
- 4 days of skiing with my girls (loved it)
- 3 days (hours) skating with my girls (love it also)
- 1 Yoga class
- 1 Snowshoe (that I forgot to write on the picture).
March was a great month for activity!
