February Recap

Miles: 105.55

X-Training: 12 (Elliptical - 5; Biking (outside!) - 2; Yoga - 3; Swimming - 2)

Rest Days: 3

Race(s): GW Birthday Classic 10k - 52:44 and GW Birthday Mile - 6:59.  Two new PRs!

New gear: A fun new red running jacket!

Workout goals: Keep going to yoga once a week - I made it 3 out of 4 weeks.
                           Get back in the pool (at least once - baby steps!) - I went swimming twice!
                           Keep up quality training for the National Half - Done.

Non-workout goal: Clean up the clutter in my apartment.  I've made good progress, but I'm still working on this.  I'm trying to tackle a manageable area each weekend so that I don't get overwhelmed.

Ice cream flavor of the month: Breyers Reese's Peanut Butter Cup

February was a good month.  I shook off the blah training mood I'd been in towards the end of February (with the help of my decision to return to outdoor morning runs) and put in my highest mileage weeks of National Half training.  I also managed to get two new PRs in one weekend at the GW Birthday races.  And I got back in the pool and rode a road bike for the first time ever.

March Preview

Workout goals: Yoga once a week
                           Biking and swimming at least 3 times (each)
                           Strong race at the National Half Marathon
                           Register for a a triathlon.  (I've started swimming and biking so it's time to actually
                           pick a race and register!)                          
Races: Four Courts Four Miler (March 12) and the National Half Marathon (March 26).

Non-workout goal: Clean up the clutter in my apartment!  This is a carryover from February, but hopefully I can finish this up in March.
