My last run for March ended up being both a win and a fail. I decided to run – literally – some errands. I took insurance papers up to the office where we’ll have our ultrasound on Monday, then headed to the grocery store. I almost bailed and just ran home, because I was feeling tired, but I decided to stick it out. WIN. My legs started to loosen up and I felt pretty good. I got to the grocery store and picked up what I needed. WIN. Apparently I didn’t really think ahead about bringing those items home with me. A butternut squash, a tub of greek yogurt, and a box of chopped broccoli don’t really sit comfortably in a drawstring backpack. FAIL. Guess what else? They don’t run well on your back – they’re knobby and dig in, they’re heavy, and the strings on the backpack really start to dig in to your shoulders. FAIL. I ended up walking most of the way from the grocery store. But I also walked past the library, where I picked up a book I had on hold. WIN.
In the end, I ran 4 miles and walked about 1. Could be worse!

What was the highlight of your March workouts? A race? A new mileage reached? A new exercise you tried? Just being able to be outside?
