February 2012 Fitness Recap

It's no secret that February is not one of my favorite months, and I'm always glad to see it end.  This month was no exception.  I did have a good month for workouts, though, and I managed to work out every day this month except today - I'm taking the day off in celebration!

This month I ran 100 miles, lifted weights 8 times, and did yoga 4 times.  I also ran a 10 mile race and didn't find out until after the fact that I won my age group!  My mom was kind enough to go pick up my award:
Always nice to get an award that is different from the usual medal.  I don't drink coffee, but my husband will put this to good use.  Just as he has that other coffee mug I won a few years ago, and the huge beer mug I won last fall.

I may be giving new meaning to the phrase "trophy wife".  My husband likes cereal too.  Anyone know of any good races giving out cereal bowls for awards?  I'm game! 

I'm thinking about signing up for a half marathon in the latter part of March.  It's a great time of year for racing.  How about you, reader.  Any March goals?  Running, mug-collecting, or otherwise?

100 miles?! WOW...that's pretty impressive! My biggest achievement for Feb was losing 3 lbs. I had lost 5 but with three males in the house who love to eat, I caved to temptation over the weekend and gained back 2 lbs :(

My daughter is training right now for a half! I think hers is the first week of May. The whole running thing is new to her, but fitness isn't, so she's doing well.

I wonder if she'll get a mug...

My goal for March is to make it to the gym every other day. I'll report back at the end of the month.

Nice mug collection, Lisa:)

Ginny said...

Congratulations! I have no doubt you will win many more. 100 miles is wonderful considering it's February. I can't imagine what you will do when spring is here!! I guess raising the boys is kind of like being in training all of the time! I hope you proudly display you trophies and don't shut them up the the kitchen cabinet!

Misty said...

:) Good job!
I love the idea of a mug award too. Something practical!

YAY that today is February's last day!

I ran 10 miles yesterday...that darned mouse just wouldn't stand still! Maybe you should get a mouse and make your running more efficient...plus if you are luckier than me, you get a nice snack at the end of the run...

You are like Forrest Gump. You never stop running.

I don't have any plans for March except to get home from Las Vegas. I am ready!! We have about 10 days left and it won't come soon enough for me.

Congratulations ... you are very inspiring!

Congratulations on your fitness goals! 100 miles this month ... great. Hope you have a great March.

I am a walker that is finding out I like to jog/run. I mostly workout on the treadmill. I am thinking about a 10K. My problem is I don't know where to start.

How do I train? If you have any suggestions or websites I would love to hear from you.

How inspiring! 100 miles? Wonderful!

My fitness goal for March to to just get started again. Inertia . . . it's terrible!

I like your mug collection and the "trophy wife" comment . . . perfect!

Looks like we're kind of neighbors. Have you run in the Lynchburg 10 miler before? And my town, Altavista, has a Giblet Jog every Thanksgiving. It pulls in people from all over. Maybe this year, I will join them!
