Well, even with the weather, I managed to run 34.26 miles this month. I’m on day #184 of my running streak. There were days when I did want to quit. But I didn’t. Nothing wrong with wanting to quit either. I knew that if I could run on the coldest day and the day with the most snow, then I could survive the rest of the days. And I did.
Monday morning there was so much sleet and I decided to run after work. I went to throw out the garbage and it was so slippery. The view after work was much better! I just noticed it is the same picture from above. 🙂
The next day was better but there was a patch of ice that I somehow missed while running but saw it as I was walking. Glad I did not fall. However, I was not so lucky on Friday. I did a 20 minute Peloton run and was walking home. I was feeling good because it was sunny and the snow was melting. Remember, I was walking. Then in slow motion I saw myself falling again. Luckily, I did not land on my face like last time. I only scraped my knee. Someone saw me and helped me get up. It was not a bad fall which I am grateful. However, I was more pissed and annoyed that I fell again and on ice. Did I tell you that I was walking? I had been very careful this month. It seems like I fall once a year. Is it safe to say that I am done for the year?
I am excited to start working with my coach again. This month was a no-no because of the weather. Michelle asked me if I will return to the 10k training. I hadn’t given it much thought until she asked me. I think I will skip the 10k and go straight to a half marathon. Maybe by the time I am ready, I will be able to run a live race. He already posted my runs on Final Surge. Most are easy runs and I am happy about it.
This week I took 6 classes with Cody. Love him! Just out of curiosity I checked to see how many classes I have not taken with him. Recently I found out about that new feature. It is a lot but I am not planning to take all of them. For now I have bookmarked the 15, 20, and 30 minute classes. Not ready for 45 minutes. Oh and I picked classes with 80s, 90s, and 90s pop music.
So that is for February. I already ripped out the page from my calendar and ready for a new month!
