    3/1 - No running - Spin and strength training
    3/2 - 4 early morning miles that felt really awesome

    Total for March - 4 miles
    Goal for March - 70 miles
    Miles to go - 66 miles

    :smile:

    I have to say, even though I don't respond a lot, I do read and you all are such a positive, upbeat bunch and I love it. I love the motivation. :smiley: I did the challenges 2 years ago, but then "The Year That Will Be Forgotten" happened.

    So:

    March 3 - 3.11 miles
    March 4 - 3.11 miles
    March 5 - Today will be some spin and strength

    Total for March - 10.22 miles
    Goal for March - 70 miles
    Miles to go - 59.78 miles

    My huge goal this year is to get my base back that I lost last year. Before 2020, I was averaging 1000+ mile years and last year, I barely got to 600. So, my base is shot.

    I ran 5 miles today without walking and felt totally amazing the entire time. Super happy with how it went and I have no doubt that I'll get to my goals this year. March goal is to get up to 6 miles comfortably and I'm sure I can do it.

    March 6 - 5 miles

    Total for March - 15.22 miles
    Goal for March - 70 miles
    Miles to go - 54.78 miles

    :smiley:

    Donated blood on Saturday morning, so I kind of expected my Sunday run to be a bit rough. Ended up being a beautiful day and I was actually 20 seconds faster per mile than what I normally run. Perhaps the slight weight loss helped ;):p .

    March 7 - 3.19 miles
    March 8 - Spinning after work - No running today

    Total for March - 18.41 miles
    Goal for March - 70 miles
    Miles to go - 51.59 miles

    Well...it caught up to me. Today's run with rough, but I got through it. Was a beautiful morning and considering I almost didn't get out there, I'll take it as a win.

    March 9 - 4.5 miles

    Total for March - 22.91 miles
    Goal for March - 70 miles
    Miles to go - 47.09 miles

    Get busy for one day and you miss so much!

    I'll have my first in person race in over a year (it will be 444 days to be exact) on March 20 and I'm excited but nervous. Just trying to focus on what I can control. I signed up for the last start time, so hopefully won't be a busy course.

    March 10 - 3.12 miles of speed work
    March 12 - 3.11 miles - Just a good ol' 5K to start the day

    Total for March - 29.14 miles
    Goal for March - 70 miles
    Miles to go - 40.86 miles

    @martaindale @Teresa502
    Like @Scott6255 I have never run any trails and I am kind of nervous about trying it. But it would be nice to meet someone from the mfp group.

    @rheddmobile Glad you were able to get back on the Wolfe River Trail and that you and your husband finished the race series without injury. As for the bridge, I wonder why they didn't build it higher, since they know it floods?

    @Faebert Yeah for meeting your goal! Sorry the vaccine through you for a loop. I hope you are feeling better today. That and a wisdom tooth removal could be brutal. Hugs and prayers for you today.
  • quilteryoyoquilteryoyo Member Posts: 3,226 Member Member Posts: 3,226 Member
    @AlphaHowls You are amazing. Glad the tooth extraction didn't make you lose your streak. Hope things calm down and you feel better soon!

    @katharmonic Glad you are okay. I hope things do calm down for you. Looking forward to hearing about the hiking weekend.
  • quilteryoyoquilteryoyo Member Posts: 3,226 Member Member Posts: 3,226 Member
    @katharmonic Sorry about your back. Hope it is feeling better!
