My goal is 1300 minutes (+100 from February since March is a longer month), 8 Strength-Training sessions (same as February, but I struggled to get there), and 21 days of 8000 steps or more (also the same as February, but I didn't meet that goal -- so trying again).

March goal: 1300 min, 8x ST, 21x 8k steps
