Oops!! Where did the month of March go?!?! This was supposed to have been posted yesterday, BUT life took hold. “What’s Up?!” is going to be my new spin on “Currently” to update you on what I’ve been up to for the month. “What’s Up?!” is a phrase I often hear in the middle school setting, so I feel it is the perfect way to keep you updated each month.
My birthday! It was a very fun day full of friends…both new and old. Crazy to think this is my last trip around the sun in my 30s!!
I started March with an FTP test that I saw HUGE improvements on!! My normalized power was up 12 watts from peak Ironman Boulder training in 2015…I was grinning from ear to ear after this test!! Not only did I see improvements in the numbers, but also on my performance during the test…I believed in myself and didn’t make excuses. It was da bomb!!
After my FTP test, my training been a roller coaster ride. I started out the month on a high note, but week 2 found my training plummeting. Week 3 I was on Spring Break and had a very successful week of training, but last week followed it up with a week of more sleep. So far this week has been back on the upswing. I hope to ride this upswing for a while!
I have been learning a lot about myself in the Living Brave Semester…my feelings, why I have them, how I react to them, giving myself permission to be human, and forgiving myself when I make mistakes. Teaching an old dog new tricks isn’t easy, but it will be worth it when these changes are no longer “new.”
I finally received my SparkNotebook and L.O.V.E. LOVE IT!! I love how it provides me a place to keep track of my week (like a planner), set weekly goals, reflect on my previous week, set monthly goals, reflect on my monthly goals, answer guiding questions each week to help me be a better person/educator/athlete/etc. As someone who thrives on organization, the SparkNotebook has been the perfect tool to add to my life!!
I got a GoPro for my birthday and I’m LOVING taking pictures from new angles and in the pool!! Now…I just need to get more creative with my shots 😉
Looking Forward To:
SPRING. SUNSHINE. WARMER TEMPERATURES. I am ready for Mother Nature to bless us with these; after all, the calendar does say spring now. 😉
How was the month of March for you? What are you looking forward to?
