March Summary

March Miles: 110.3
2011 Total: 250.3

Stationary Bike: 3x for 42.4 miles
Walking: 2x for 6.2 miles
Strength Training: 10x!!!!!

High Point:  Consistency!  All around.  The only workouts I missed were 2 aerobic cross training sessions.  I still did my strength training those days.  No unscheduled rest days.  No injury. 

Low Point: Hmmm, I really can't think of anything really bad.  There were a couple of not great runs, but nothing horrible.

Best run(s):  Definitely the fartleks with Coelle--my only run with two-legged partner.  It is always AWESOME to run with her!  The other was the 400 repeats.  Incredibly fun workout.

Overall, a great month with increasing mileage--finally!  Feel like I am doing a better job of keeping my easy miles easy so I can really hit the hard workouts.  However, my easy miles are getting faster again.  I can hold a conversation with the dog at 9:30 pace again.  Hooray!  So looking forward to some warmer temperatures and maybe even some sunshine in April!

I'm adding in more strength training lately. This morning: weights, burpees, planks. Good job on 10x in March!

"Hold a conversation with the dog at 9:30 pace." I run with my dog, too - that's a great test!
