Thank God February is O-V-E-R

Yes, it is time for my monthly update. My New Year’s resolution is to walk 3,000,000 steps this year, and if February is any indication, I will not be making that goal.

I’ve already posted the many, many reasons why February was a disappointment to my step-challenge. All I can say now is, February is over, let the rest of the year begin. On Friday I started my new job, which should make my life much saner. Although we are expected to see snow again in March, I can’t believe the weather will be as arduous as this past month. Right?

192,816 steps

192,816 steps

OK. So here are the lowly stats — (Keep in mind that February is also shorter than other months by 2-3 days.) 

I walked 192,816 steps. That is just under 87 miles. I only ran 15 miles the whole month. The rest was walking, and to be honest, most of it was work-related walking.  Feb. 11 and Feb. 22 were my best days, with 12,550 steps each. 13 of 28 days I met my 8,000 step goal (and one day I came really, really close) and 5 days I had over 10,000 steps.  (Compare to January)

My goals for February were:

  • Exercise on the weekend: I did manage to run 3 out of 4 weekends. 
  • Water: Not so much — Will have to work on this one.
  • Run Envy — Not at all.

My goals for March is simple:

Keep doing your best, and don’t beat yourself up when you struggle.
And keep running!
