This morning Dave left to ride Arcadia and suggested I'd be better off running on the treadmill at the Y, it was 11 degrees outside and it would be nice if I'd spend THIS month healthy. Roger that! Not that I've been curled up in the corner with my tissues and NyQuil every night... So I got up, rinsed off (I might as well be polite to anyone next to me) packed my bag and headded out. Well it seemed a heck of a lot warmer than 11, he must be crazy (or that was an hour earlier). So I went to the grocery store instead figuring maybe I'd feel more like running inside or it would be warmer? It was warmer, I ran 10K outside. It sucked, it really really did. I think I yelled at the cross walk sign on Grove and RT 1.... I was delirious, I'm sure. (but seriously 3 light changes?)
Still can't get the Strava html to load.
After I got showered and warmed up, I started feeling better, better than I had since before I left Florida on Monday.
So begins March in like a lion out like a lamb? Or vice versa?
February, wasn't so bad, truly, I didn't hate it, first in a long time!
Even looking back a year, more than doubled my miles 56 versus 119, no injuries, added in strength training to TRX, slowly incorporating changes into my usual running routine: adding in hills and some endurance work with a run / spin / run work out once a week (ish).
Sucks it ended feeling like I got run over by a Mack Truc, but considering how much pain I was in with my SI joint last February I'll take the Mack Truck!
Monday: Run: 3.1 / Walk: endless in airports / Other: 0 (I didn't strangle anyone on the plane?)
Tuesday: Run: 0 / Walk: 0 / Other: Spin and Weights
Wednesday: Run: 0 / Walk: 0 / Other: 0 unless you count hauling my gym bag to and from work!
Thursday: Run: 0 / Walk: 0 / Other: 0 (I slept all day)
Friday: Run: 0 / Walk: 3.1 / Other: 0 (considered a bike ride)
Saturday: Run 6.2 / Walk: 0 / Other: 0
Sunday: hopefully 10
Onward to March! Swimming lessons start on Wednesday! I'm sure the base of dog paddle and side stroke I cobbled together from my childhood swimming lessons and application in lakes, ponds, and the occasional pool will be exponentially helpful and a fun bad habit to break!
Beth, Looking forward to a new challenge!
