This month has been kind of crazy! At the beginning of the month, we were still looking for apartments.
Mid-month we signed a lease, moved everything out of our apartment in Pullman, then moved everything into a NEW apartment. This sounds pretty straight forward (maybe?), but required a ton of work. Needless to say, February went by super fast.

Everything we own fit easily into a U-haul truck
All of this is a way of saying that I probably got in 50% of the runs that I wanted to in February. I guess that's better than nothing?
Here's a recap of my month:
Tuesday- easy 5 miles
Thursday- easy 4 miles
Friday- easy 5 miles
Saturday- easy 4 miles
Sunday- easy 6 miles
Total: 24 miles
Tuesday- 12 X 400m at 5k race pace
Thursday- rest (was sleep deprived because worried about choosing right apartment lol)
Friday- 4 miles easy
Saturday- 2 miles easy (almost didn't run at all)
Sunday- 8 miles easy
Total: 21 miles

Sunday- rest (aka moving to new apartment)
Total: 10.1 miles
Monday- 3 miles easy
Thursday- cross training (skiing!)
Friday- 5 miles easy

Sunday- rest (was feeling sick)
Total: 14 miles
Monday- 5 x 1Km at 5k race pace
Tuesday- rest (surprise ER trip because not feeling well)

Total: 5.3 miles so far...
So it's probably pretty obvious that training did not go as planned this month.
Week 1) Right on target.
Week 2) I struggled but held on to sticking to training mostly.
Week 3) I felt that I had to kind of give up on the training and prioritize moving.
Week 4) I probably really should have been running more but felt so overwhelmed by being in a new area, needing to set-up a new home and unpack that I put it off.
Week 5) I am currently struggling to get back to a "normal" routine and it doesn't help that I've been feeling really sick (which I will write about later.
Total miles for this month: 70
Not bad considering all the chaos...
Here's to a productive March and to all the happiness that will happen at my new apartment/town!
