In Like a Lion??

2 Mar

hello-marchWelcome to March!

So, in February I made a fairly decent attempt to get back on track with running and training. This weekend I’m running my first half marathon of  the year and while I don’t expect to break any records, I’ve heard it’s  ‘flat and fast’ course so I’m hoping that running the hills in my neighborhood have given me a little extra oomph!

Note: When googling for clip art for “Oomph” I got a ton of results for a band of some sort…not exactly what I was hoping for!!

Anyway…

My biggest goal for March is to stick to my training schedule as close as possible – yep, a new training cycle starts the day I get back from this weekend’s run. (Up next, the Marine Corps Historic Half)goalsIt’s also Lent — I try to give up at least one bad thing I do and adopt some more positive actions and thoughts.

So I’ll be giving up bad excuses for not running and I’ll be tracking here much more closely!

And, as usual, I will try to be less road-ragey for the next 40 days. This is actually the number 1 toughest thing for me – I has no patience.

My total mileage goal for March is 90 Miles.

I also have a goal (still) to drop some lbs. In fact, since January, I have sworn off of wine (except for special occasions. And Scandal) and NO peanut butter until I drop the first 5! And, not the one I’ve been losing 5 times but 5 actual separate and distinct pounds!!

And, I’m getting back to batch cooking my lunches on Sunday – it’s easy and I never wonder what to have. Lunch also tends to be mostly plant-based (I use cow milk and yogurt. And sometimes chicken broth). I’m not giving up meat any time soon but it’s a nice change. My challenge is picking things that aren’t too carb heavy.

To recap – 90 miles, 5 pounds, a half marathon, limited wine, no peanut butter and no swearing….I think that covers it!

And I have a pretty full race schedule in March as well — the annual Trinity of O’Races put on my the Hartford Marathon Foundation (with a fourth added this year so …not really a Trinity eh?!) These are really a ton of fun and generally a good start to the season!!

March Race Schedule:
Myrtle Beach Half Marathon – March 4
O’Shenanigans 5K – March 11
O’Putnam 5K – March 12
O’Niantic 5K – March 18
O’Hartford 5K – March 19

I’m actually not going to post this week’s training schedule because it’s already Thursday and I’ve done none of it! I hope to get out this evening to do a few miles though. Let’s just say, I’m already 6 miles behind my goal..whomp whomp.

But, onward and upward right?! It’s a fresh new month and Spring (and outdoor running!) is so close you can almost touch it!

Have a great first March weekend – go out and get it all done!!!
