I spent almost the whole month without a treadmill. And I made it!
Mostly because I was injured.
This is how I feel about not being able to run. I’m trying to focus on the healing and the long term goals.
February Mileage: 32 miles. Lowest mileage since….ever? Not really. The month after I had surgery in 2011 I ran less than that. It is still sad. I did manage 126 miles on the bike. The bike is not fun. I actually don’t mind riding my road bike in the summer, but the stationary bike at the gym is super-boring. Even with the injury, I only had 5 complete rest days (and one of them was due to the weather and me literally not being able to get out of my driveway). Since I have been going to gym, I have also gotten in a little more strength work. It is upper body stuff, because I don’t want to aggravate the hip.
2014 year to date: 143. I am falling off the pace of my 1250 mile goal for the year (that is 2014 km in case you are wondering).
Long Runs: 7.3 (I shortened this one…it should have been a couple miles longer). If I had known that I wouldn’t be able to run the rest of the month, I definitely would have run longer.
Upcoming Races: Half is Good Enough for Me half marathon on March 29th. Jaden is going to run the 5K. If I’m still injured, I will just do the 5K with Jaden.
#5. Oh #5.
How was your February? Can winter be over now?? Please?
