It's time to sum up the month. It was a mix if sharpening my base, a mini break due to work, and then training began. It's been a weird month, and I was exhausted this past weekend. It was a tough month at work, with changes and adjustments, and then the weather hasn't helped. I would've loved a 3-day weekend this week, but I have vacation coming up at the end of March. I just need to make it there.
So far, my mileage is a little short compared to January, but I do have a 3-mile run today. I hope I can push through whatever barrier I have to get to 3 miles. I did 3 miles twice in February, and both were a challenge. I don't know if it's the treadmill, or something mental, or that I'm not quite at my natural stride on the treadmill. I'm really looking forward to this weekend because right now, the forecast shows 57 on Saturday! Oh please please please stay that temp. I ended up doing everything inside this past weekend because the wind was insane.
My main focus again was strength training. After that one spot flared up on my hamstring, I've incorporated a day of just hamstring exercises. Other days are a combo of lower body, and then Pure Barre is total body. I've been biking more since getting my recumbent bike, and my routine feels good. I can definitely keep at it during training.
I also bought new gear. I haven't tested out my new sports bras yet, but I will this week. I wanted to wash them first. New gear always makes training fun. Since I have new sports bras now, I can see how much my older ones have stretched. They still work great, but the new ones seem smaller, and yet they fit so well.
The last is a side note. I don't do Lent, and I'm not religious, but the timing worked out well. I finally had enough of Twitter and the political minefields, so I de-activated my account. After 30 straight days of not logging in, my account will be deleted. It's definitely been hard, but I found I wasn't really posting lately, and I'd go a whole day without logging in. Might as well cut the cord. Y'all can still follow along on Instagram :)
Tuesdays on the Run with Patty, Erika, and Marcia.
