March Madness...

... and I am not talking about college hoops.

This month has been a month from hell, and I thought that February was bad. Remember how I said I was so excited to see February done and over with, hoping for the best with training and such in March?

There is nothing you can do when you are dealing with the unexpected. This month's workouts (or lack there of) were affected by: parent/teacher conferences, an increase in the usual paperwork/meetings, 2 winter storm days, pool closed for a week, 6 days away from work in regards to the Red River flood issue and the entire gym closed for an additional week because of this...


Here are March's totals:
  • Swim - 5,600M.....................7,250M in February
  • Bike - 65.91 miles.............35.94 miles in February
  • Run - 24.00 miles..............21.10 miles in February

I am pretty pleased with my numbers. Especially since I am slowly recovering with this knee issue. Yes, I am still having some tightness in my right knee after 3 miles of running, but I am working out the kinks.

I started the month off with a band with Jillian's 30-Day Shred video, doing the first 10 days back to back, and then all went downhill. I am thinking about starting over tomorrow, and doing it straight through this time.

I was also hoping to start my Tri Power book in April, but that might have to wait until May. Things are just not back to routine yet, and I don't want to start something I can't be consistent with right now. Not until a routine is back in place.

April is going to be better.

It has to be.

I agree - April MUST be better! Still some good numbers for March, though.

That's pretty good considering how the last couple of weeks have been for you. Here is to a better April for you.

You did great this month! I get distracted very easily and I'm certain I would have ignored workouts with all the stuff you've had to deal with lately

Great job!

Nice job. If it makes you feel any better your numbers are way better than mine.

April will be better. Great job on working out while being super busy. I hope I can swim like you.

It will be better! Can you believe that this month is over already? It just seems like yesterday I was reading about those Jillian workouts.

I just posted my stats for March and they are soooo similar to yours. I, too, hope April will be better. It HAS to be - it's going to warm up, which will make it easier to get out there. GOOD LUCK with your training and try not to be so hard on yourself. I know, easier said than done....but at least you HAVE numbers to record for the month, right? :)

April is definitely looking like a better month for you :-)

Wow, March was rough for you! Sometimes life happens though. Hopefully with the scaled back workouts your knee will be happy with you. All the best for April!!
