February Recap

The shortest month of the year is finally over! It was a great month but I am so excited for March!  In February, I started training for my third half marathon and has some of the snowiest runs ever!  Overall it was a good month!


Average Temp: 34F/1.1C

Miles run: 92.1 miles.  Can't believe I ran that many miles during this short month!

Rest days taken: 8 from running, 7 from all activity.  Guess I have been slacking on the cross training.

Highest mileage week: 26.9 miles

Average pace: 8:31 min/mile

Current Obsessions: Work....getting married in under 200 days....planning the wedding....running....life....work....wedding....you could say that I am slightly stressed out/overwhelmed.

Current Excitement: First race of 2011 on March 12th!

Current Read: The Late, Lamented Molly Marx by Sally Koslow and The Postmisstress by Sarah Blake

Current Guilty Pleasure: Hot chocolate, cookies, skittles...pretty much all things sweet!  I just can't stop craving all things sugar!


How did your February shape up??

Hey J,

I found your blog while searching for other runners.

Running with all this snow makes it challenging to get workouts in. I don't like indoor workouts at all. But if need be, I'll do them. Also, going away presents issues too so good job getting in workouts while away.

If you get a chance, stop by my blog and say hello.

My February sucked. Dealing with an injury at the tail end of training for my first marathon. Good thing it was the shortest month!

I heart recap posts like this. Nice running! I can't imagine planning a wedding while working, running, etc. But you can do it! At least running is a stress reliever, right?

Great mileage for Feb!

I can't believe the wedding is under 200 days away! How exciting! But also stressful, I am sure, as there is so much to do! It will all come together beautifully, I'm sure!

My Feb was awesome! I celebrated my 30th & went to Paris - nothing to complain about over here! :)

Nice month!
I'm with you on the sugar. I blame it on all the snow.

I may be biased, but I want to hear more about your wedding plans!

Well done on a great month! Your mileage is amazing~ My Feb didn't go exactly to plan but it could have gone a lot worse :-)
