March… poof! Where has it gone?

Where has March gone?  It is hard to believe it is the end of the month already.

Because I have been strength training at home a couple of times a week, and going to group exercises classes at the gym 3 times a week, and getting out for lots of walks in between, running has taken a back seat.  Well, honestly, running has barely been in the car at all!

So last night when we went to bed I told The Captain that I was going for a 5km run this morning and he said he would like to go along.  This morning we both had a bit of coffee before drinking our pre-run smoothies and off we went. It was a bit breezy along the waterfront so I was glad I had worn my Tommie Copper beanie to keep my ears warm.  It was quite sunny though and I warmed up quickly. 

It was slow, I have to admit, and The Captain did walk a couple of times on uphill stretches so that he wasn’t running away from me! But It was great to be out and afterward, I enjoyed a long and leisurely stretch on the balcony in the sunshine.

March in Numbers:
  • 3 number of runs
  • 4 number each  of Body Pump, Flow Yoga, and Body Flow classes
  • 9 number of strength training sessions with The Captain
  • 12 number of treadmill runs that I did before group exercise classes ranging in time from 10 to 25 minutes, no keeping track of distance
  • 15 number of kilometres run

I am so looking forward to April… one more Body Pump class and one more Flow Yoga class before my gym membership expires and then the routine changes again.

I am gathering information about stretching hips and hip flexors, starting a home yoga practice, and looking for some beginners’ yoga workouts that I can share with The Captain.  I will be changing our workout schedule and the exercises in it as well.  

It is gonna be a fun month! 

Any special plans for April?


  1. Those are some great numbers! I can't believe March is almost done...this year is going by way to fast! I do a lot of hip flexor stretches / lower back ones. makes such a difference!

  2. I hope April brings sunshine to Alberta. I may run a half-marathon at the end of the month. No big plans other than that :) Have a great day!

  3. March flew by! I was almost thinking I was writing a February recap. You've managed such a nice variety of workouts for the month. WTG!

  4. March did fly by. moslty seemed like one big snowstorm, although there were a few super nice days in there. Hoping April brings warmer weather! Great job getting out for a run this morning and with all the classes you got in this month!

  5. Glad you got a run in with this nice weather:) Sounds like April will be a nice change. No plans for me this month. Just trying to stick with my training plan and keep up with my strength work;) I hope the sun sticks around!

  6. Great month! Eager to see what comes next! :)
