#2014Goals : March Recap

I've decided to post monthly updates for my #2014Goals. If posting my goals for 2013 helped, monthly updates should help with accountablity, right?

So here was my list as it stood on January 1:
  • Run another 5k
  • UPDATE: Did not make it to the 5k on 2/22 (on-call work).
  • Complete the Bridge to 10K Program
  • UPDATE: still in progress
  • Complete the Ramblin' Rose Super Sprint Triathlon
  • UPDATE: registered for the Ramblin' Rose on 5/18; so far so good with running, (stationary) biking, and swimming, but I STILL need a bike!
  • Stop saying a particular expletive!
  • UPDATE: Mixed results, but usage is way down!
  • Give up caffeine
  • UPDATE: in progress
  • Get down to goal weight
  • UPDATE: maintained this month (~5 so far)
  • Camp four places: Fort Pickens, Ocracoke, Lake James, Bear Island
  • UPDATE: Travel to Fort Pickens is booked for April
  • Day Hikes in New Places
  • UPDATE: no new hike route this month

March didn't bounce back exercise-wise as much as I'd like, but I'm not going to be too hard on myself. Later in the month I got back in a better groove only to get sicker than I have been in about 20 years. It blew away the last four days of the month (and some of the beginning of April!) for anything other than laying in bed praying my fever would go away. I'm almost 2 weeks since it began and still trying to get rid of the leftover head and chest congestion. I finally got back on a stationary bike and treadmill just last night!

My workouts were:
Runs: 5
Crossfit: 2
Hikes/Long Walks: 6
Swims: 0
Rides (Spin Classes or Stationary Bike): 3
Other: 1 (30 minutes on elliptical)
