February was a month of running!! I ran 18 out of 28 days (a lot for me) for a total of 207 hard miles and 19.9 easy miles – my highest month in a long time.
Sunday 2/22 – 45 squat with kettle bell pull.
6.2 miles – 43:06 followed by an easy mile. (I really wanted to push the pace harder but know that I can’t while I’m running so many miles right now.)
Monday 2/23 – 45 lateral raises with a “milk pour” (flip hands palms up then back down).
From here, you flip your hands back over (palms down) and then lower to complete one rep.
I did something I hate doing and ran a distance that wasn’t “round” – 8.8 miles (70:09) followed by 1.2 easy miles. I did the 0.8 to keep my overall mileage even after the 10K on Sunday.
Tuesday 2/24 – 45 arrowheads (for butt).
See, you sort of make an arrowhead shape in the air with your leg movements! And, of course, I had to switch and work my left side!!
Probably not the best exercise for the day since it made my butt a little sore right before my long run but….
31 miles in 4:06.58 – I pushed myself on this run because I wanted to maintain a good pace for the entire distance!! I only did 0.2 miles to cool down.
Wednesday 2/25 – 45 calf stretch on wobble balls.
I thought about doing an easy run but my hips were a bit achy so I decided it was better to rest.
Thursday 2/26 – 45 laps around the ballroom at the venue.
I had to clean for a Friday event and I wasn’t super motivated about cleaning so I stalled and walked 45 laps first!!!
Friday 2/27 – 45 chair squats.
I didn’t plan to take a 3rd day off but sometimes that’s just the way things work out.
Saturday 2/28 – 45 tricep dips with hands on wobble balls.
We actually took these pictures one morning before I took Hunter to school but I didn’t do the move until this morning.
And, I finished the week with a run.
5 miles – 39:39 + 1 easy mile.
I’m happy that I had another week over 50 miles.
51 hard miles
3.4 easy miles
This week presented some challenges but thankfully I got in my runs and kept my daily moves going!!!
