March Goals

Running so far behind.... It's already the 3rd of March and I haven't gotten around the posting my March goals.  I didn't do this for February and I feel like my month was not as GREAT as January was. February mileage was only 90, putting me behind for the 2014KM in 2014.  I've got a few to make up and hopefully March's weather will cooperate, so far..... NOT SO GOOD (on the weather front).

March Goals:
1. Run 100+ miles this month
2. Roll at least 3 x week
3. IT band exercises at least 3 x week
4. Plank 5 x week (get up to 9 minutes a day)

All very doable goals I just need to stick to it especially in those 3rd and 4th weeks of the month.  Gung Ho the first two and then a slacker the last two.  

I've got one race scheduled so far this month, the Martha Jefferson 8K.  I ran this one last year and it was a great course but looking at the course map for this year, it's a very different beast.  Running in Charlottesville is NOT my favorite but it sure beats a super flat course that can destroy my quads in 8 miles.  
Anyone else prefer hilly courses over flat ones?  Any suggestions for keeping me accountable without posting stuff all over my house so my friends can think I am TOTALLY obsessed with running and fitness?


  1. amen to the IT band exercises!! I've been so diligent with all my PT the last few months and swear I'll keep it up!

  2. I go in spurts. It's been over a year now since I was in PT and every now and again I slack and my IT band reminds me! Good Luck Amanda!
