My February miles were not great. I averaged 3 runs a week, and my long runs were shorter than last month (12, 5, 10, and 8 compared to 12, 9, 13, and 7). Total mileage for February...67.5, my average weekly totals were 17 miles. Not great, but also, eh, whatever. I'm not currently training for anything, I was sick for half the month, and my weight went down from Feb 1 to Mar 1 (I'm not talking about it, but if you want to look at my Scale Obsession page you can see the results there . . . okay, maybe a little brag, I'm down 6 lbs from Jan 1 and 2 lbs from Feb 1). I'm happy with that.
I have been lazy again in going to the gym. I haven't gone this week at all. I always go on Monday and Tuesday, and I skipped it both days. I have no excuse, except I didn't want to go. My insurance reimburses me for my gym membership if I go 12 times a month, I needed to go Tuesday and Monday to go 12 times this month. Soooo . . . I sorta went and sorta checked in, and sorta walked out right away.
I mean, I'm healthy, I run (maybe not as much as I intend to) and I actually do go to the gym regularly. I have had my membership since August and this is the first month I've done that. I'm making excuses, but honestly, I'm pretty okay with having done it . . . 4 times this month.
This weekend I'm going to my parent's house in eastern Washington. We are going over there to go birthday and Christmas clothes shopping. My mom gets us gift cards for our birthdays and Christmas and then we go shopping with her in February. This year it's a little late, but it will be fun. Normally my Mom comes over here, but we were trying to include our older sister who doesn't get along with our Mom and doesn't enjoy shopping with her as much. However, our older sister made other plans, but we're still going to go over there because it feels like forever since I've been. And I really love my parents' house.
Tonight is cycle class with my sister. We both still talk about our original cycle instructor, Natalie. We really liked her, she was hard, but she made it super interesting. The new person we have is the best we could find of really, really boring people. Last week we did "climbs" and that was so boring. As we left she said "Next week we're going for mileage!" We didn't really understand, I mean, it's not like we don't cycle for 55 min every single week, last week I looked at the mileage a little before we were done and I was at 20 miles. That seems to be a pretty good distance. Maybe we get more miles if we go faster? I don't know, I guess we'll see.
