First of all thanks for all the supportive comments in yesterdays post. It really means a lot to me. I know we are already 6 days into March but I still wanted to get this done.
Miles run: 150
Total for the year 306
Longest Run 17 miles
It was a really busy month with the first week being consumed by federal jury duty and a week of the kids and I being sick, and my little sister being here for the month. I am a little surprised I managed to get in that many miles with all that went on.
and how am I doing with my goals for the year?
1. Drink more water: I am doing a lot better at work, but don't seem to do very good at home. I think it is just the weather being cold maybe? I can walk around cleaning the house and think "I'm thirsty" but then I just do and do something else, like getting a glass of water is such a big chore or something.
2. Wear more sunscreen: I still have so much room for improvement here. I think adding a bottle of sunscreen to my running gear bag will help.
3.Run 1500 miles this year (about 125 a month or 28 a week) Mileage for the month is..150. This is my second highest mileage in a month ever. I think if I would not have had jury duty and been sick it would have been even higher.
4. Eat less sugar: I have been doing better here. I cut it out for Lent. Or at least I am trying to. I was doing great until my husband brought home a bag of Nibs.
5. Run Faster. I have added speed workouts in again and am feeling really good about them.
6.Read the kids a bedtime story every night. Done except for the times they fall asleep on the couch early.
7.Keep running clothes in my car so when the opportunity presents itself I can knock out a quick run. This added up to an extra 14 miles again in February.
On a totally different note, I took my son into the pediatrician yesterday for his kindergarten checkup. He did so great and had to have three more shots. Seems like a lot of shots. Afterwards we took him to Dairy Queen for ice cream. YUM. I had the mint oreo blizzard.
