It’s already March 4 and I have been delinquent about recapping the month of February.
So here’s how things went…
The weather got colder, windier and snowier (still no big storms) but I still was able to run 2-3 times each week.
I started out the month with a half marathon. Then in preparation for my upcoming half marathon, I continued to run higher mileage on the weekend.
The first long run was a solo one and for the last two, I had company. Definitely enjoyed the last two much more!
90 miles this month!
Much less than last month (11 miles less) but there was tapering, half marathon recovery, frigid weather and I had a cold.
Actually this month’s total is more normal for me with regard to monthly running mileage.
I only ran ONE race (yes, that is odd for me) and it was the Sarasota Music Half Marathon. I loved everything about the race except for the cold, windy weather.
But I was still pleased with my time.
I continued to play tennis one night a week.
I DID NOT go to a single yoga class!! I planned to but something usually got in the way. Next month, I promise!
I started to walk a little more at work (indoors around the building and to Starbucks and back)
I am still working on that scarf. Someday I may finish it.
I spent an awesome 6 days on the Gulf coast of Florida. The weather was not ideal but the company made up for it. I love my friends!!
My friends got together for a coloring book party. It was a lot of fun.
And there were quite a few reasons to celebrate.
I joined the 100 Half Marathon Club. I don’t know if I’ll ever reach 100. (I’ve only run 17 and I am 62.) But I’ll have fun trying. And I don’t have to travel to all 50 states.
I won a running belt in a giveaway. I’m looking forward to wearing it in a race.
Feeling healthy so Life Is Good.
I am training for another half marathon in March. It’s a hilly one but such an important cause!!
