Now that February has come and gone, it’s time to take a look back at the month and check in on New Year’s Goals.
As I explained in January’s monthly recap, I am still focusing on long term goals, which means that I have been unable to really start working on any of my short term goals yet.
-I haven’t trained for the half I have coming up in 2 weeks (which had originally been the plan at the start of the year). At this point it looks like I won’t be running it, pending any small miracles. If I do run, it will just be for fun and maybe to see where my fitness is right now since I haven’t been running for time lately
-I’ve been running less miles, zero races….again, it’s all about the long term goals.
-I’ve continued planking but haven’t kept track of it. Not sure if I would even say I am planking 5 days a week…maybe more like 4?
-I forgot about this one until reviewing my goals. I’m listening to “Born To Run” as an audiobook, and I read “Build Your Running Body” on our flights to and from Arkansas.
-Still not signed up for a marathon, and will need alot of work to get back to a place where I am ready to do so.
February 2015 Stats and Highlights
Total Miles: 76…my lowest in a long, long time
Best Run: Any time I got to run outside was pretty exciting, but my favorite runs were on the Arkansas trails!
Favorite Non-Running Activity: I really enjoyed giving PureBarre a try. I made it to 3 classes this month (which is the most you can attend at one studio using ClassPass). Once I move I will be too far from the studio to continue going (even now its kind of a hike…) but I hope to keep up with barre using DVDs and online workouts.
Most Popular Blog Posts:
It seems like people were still interesting in reading about the Whole30 this month! Food posts always seem to get so much traffic which really surprises me since my pictures leave so much to be desired.
Biggest Accomplishment: Nothing really comes to mind. Maybe finally taking the steps to go back to PT?
Setbacks and struggles: Still working on dealing with ongoing hip/back/leg issues.
Things I’m looking forward to in March: Picking out things for our house and planning the big move! We go to closing on March 23rd:) Also, my niece is due on April 3rd but MAYBE she will come a little early?! I guess I can also say I am looking forward to my half-marathon but we will see if that actually happens. And PLEASE let it start to warm up this month!
