- My Monday night students have randomly had a lot of conflicts that have required missing classes in the past few weeks, and the low class numbers are discouraging! I tend to have more energy the more people that are there. However, lower numbers means I can watch people’s form even more, and that we get to chat a lot more during class!
- I didn’t think I was going to get a run in on Tuesday – I had plans after work during the time I normally run. However, I had thrown my workout clothes in the car just in case, and I am happy I did – I was at Bobbi’s dropping off something and I mentioned I had my clothes and off we went! It was so nice to run and chat – we hadn’t done that in almost a year!
- I started to feel a bit under the weather at the end of the week – I hope that doesn’t turn in to anything other than a nagging cough! I had bad post-race cough on Sunday and thought it was just that – I hope I am not getting sick!
- Monthly recap time! In February I ran 129 miles (25 runs), cycled 116.8 miles (9 indoor rides) and swam 6,027 yards (5 swims). My coldest run was 20°F and my warmest was 61°F. I taught 8 strength classes, 3 fitness boxing classes, and 2 indoor cycling classes.
