Monthly Rewind – February edition

Well, we’ve sprinted through another month, but before we look ahead, let’s put a wrap on this month.

Good things for the month:

  • Loving working with my new chiropractor.
  • After two weeks of following “no run” orders, I got in 3 pain-free miles on Saturday and am heading out this morning for another run today! Ending the month on a positive note!
  • Kept my 5-minute daily plank challenge going. I think this streak may continue into March!

Things I could do without:

  • You all have heard enough about my non-running, race-canceling woes so we’re not going to dwell here!
  • Saying goodbye to Trainer Stacy 🙁

On the decks for March:

  • Return to training. I’m working with my RC coaches now to map out a new plan. As long as I can string together a few more pain-free runs, I’ll be able to start training for Boston’s Run to Remember!
  • Consistent work with the chiro to make the return to training possible.
  • Challenge myself to try some new strength workouts and not slack!

How was your February?

I’m linking up with Erika, Marcia, and Patty for this week’s Tuesday on the Run – the topic this week is grading your month. 



  1. Solid month, moving in the right direction, Michelle! A good chiro is worth it’s weight in gold! Glad you’re making good progress!

  3. At least you ended February on a high note, like you said. Great job on the 5 min plank challenge. I do not think I could do that. As I think 30 sec is way long!

  4. I’m glad to hear you are on the road to recovery! It sucks not running but remember, I trained for Big Sur on little running! You can do it!

  6. I am so glad you have a great new chiro. I go to mine every 2 weeks and I swear to heaven he is a life saver.

  7. Yay to pain-free running! As for strength, I have to give a plug to QSFR. I found it helped so much to have a set plan and it only requires two days a week.

  8. Yay to running without pain! Hope you can continue so you can get back on a training plan.
    I too need to get back on strength training. It’s so important for runners to do.
