Last month when I wrote my February review post, I mentioned that I felt like we had cheated winter. HA! We sure did make up for that in March. Colder temps, snow, ice, and rain…we had it all this month. It didn’t interfere too much with my workouts other than the week we got snow that become a nice sheet of ice for a few days.
Month in Review: March 2017
I did get back to running consistently this month, so that was a plus. I also started a daily meditation practice for Lent. I still feel like I have a long way to go with this, but I am happy that I have been consistent.
My workout schedule generally involved 3-4 days of running, 1-2 days of strength training, along with some core work and yoga.
I think I will be revising my goals this month, but here is how I have been doing with my winter goals.
GOALS FOR WINTER
- Short but consistent yoga practices: B+
- Foot strength and balance: C+
- Mobility work/foam rolling: B+
- Longer spinning workouts: A-
- More planks and push-ups: A-
Earlier this month I was not doing yoga at all, but later in the month it sounded good again. As I have said before I definitely go through phases with it. I have also been forgetting to work on the foot strength and balance. I do walk around barefoot at home, but that’s about it.
Everything else has been going ok, but it’s definitely time to change things up! The foot/ankle/shin/whatever it is has been holding up ok, but not well enough to increase my mileage. I am beyond frustrated with it at this point, which is why I try not to talk about it very often!
With blogging I stuck to a 3 day/week schedule which is about all I can handle at this point. I saw more blog growth this month, with hitting by far my highest monthly page views. All thanks to Pinterest.
Here are a few posts I shared this month:
