February came rolling in with a bang and brought with it a lot of turmoil — good turmoil, if such a thing exists. I got my long-awaited job offer, started a new side business venture, made great personal strides in the blog world, and still managed to stick to my workout routine. It was such a busy month that it almost passed me by!
If I didn’t have a calendar tracking my miles, I probably would’ve forgotten about the 5K-a-day February Challenge. But alas, it is the last day of the month and the results have been tallied! If you whip out your calculator and do a little simple math, a 5K a day for 28 days comes out to 86.8 miles. I’ll go ahead and admit I missed three days and if I didn’t make-up the miles on another day the target would be 77.5 miles with this information.
I love SMASHING goals! This month, my total distance is right at 100 miles. ONE HUNDRED MILES IN 28 DAYS! I’m feeling like a rockstar! The last two weeks distance has been mostly running whereas the first two was mostly walking. My legs are thanking me for slow progress because the next 8 months of running/training/and races is a wee bit daunting…
And with this awesome record under my belt, I wave buh-bye to February and get ready to welcome in March. I enjoy torturing myself, so, March is another 30-day shred month. I’ve purchased proper weights for this go, as one can only shred with full wine bottles so many times before the muscles just don’t find it challenging anymore!
Of course I’ll be colour-coordinated for my workouts and future races. Have you met me? Bring it on March; Bring it on Jillian Michaels! I’m relying on the Facebook Group I’m a member of to keep me going and motivated and shredding. I’m only 3 months out from my birthday now, so, it’s a battle of the mind and body until then!
And of course, I have the Great Ireland Run April 6th so the runs and mileage will continue. Didn’t you know I’m aiming to hit 2,014K this year? It’s a lofty goal, but I’m a determined gal.
What’s your March challenge? We’re only about 100 days away from summer: What body will you be wearing?
