February By The Sub-Par Numbers
I blame it on the short month.* I finally took a good look at my printed schedule and was kind of shocked to see all the red x’s marking the work-outs that I didn’t do. I’ve had bad weeks before during training, but I think this is the first time I’ve had a bad month. I will be very happy when Daylight Savings Time starts so that there’s more light!
Total Kilometres/Miles: 144.96/90.07
Here’s why March is going to be so much better:
- I finally figured out how to get to group run on Wednesday nights which means that I’ll be getting all of my hill training and speed work in this time around.
- I need to get back up to 4 days/week so that I’ll have a remote chance at making my mileage goal for the year.
- My birthday is on St. Patrick’s Day! And I get to celebrate it with a 10km run since it’s clinic night. ☺
- I don’t want to have a post like this at the end of next month… 60 days until marathon #2 so I’d better get my butt in gear.
*I know full well that I had an off month. Probably best to admit that it was laziness brought on by a lack of desire to go out in the rain, dark, or with Spud. Apparently I can talk myself out of ANYTHING!
I just found your blog and can't wait to read more! Your month still looks impressive to me 🙂 Happy birthday month!

Running in through the winter is hard! I totally understand. Here's to a better March for the both of us!

I still think running 90 miles in a month is unbelievable! Good job. Hope you're closer to reaching your goals in March.

90 miles is still great!

I don't think it is too hard to talk ones self out of running in the cold and dark or with a stroller… I'm right there with you. Bring on spring and daylight savings!
That is still a lot of push ups!
