January 2012 in Review

leave a comment »

Running – 99.5 miles over 16 runs.  January was a stellar running month for me, as it usually is…  Both the number of runs (16) and number of miles (99.5) were my highest since Dec 2010 and therefore beat all the months of 2011!  I started speed training again and did 4 speed workouts.  The month also included one long run in the lead-up to my next marathon, which will be Georgia’s Marathon on March 18.  The clear highlight for me was when I tied my 10k PR last weekend in Prospect Park.

Races – 2 (LIRRC Hangover 5m Fun Run – 45:23; Brrrrrooklyn Hot Chocolate 10k – 52:43)

Biking – 0 miles over 0 rides.  Will kick this off again in March, leading into the March Madness Biathlon 3/25

Swims – 0.  Will kick this off again after my 3/18 marathon is done

Gym workouts – 5

Softball – Offseason

Injuries – Finally, nothing that is holding back my training!

Sicknesses – Just a bit of a stomach bug for a couple of days

Weight – Gained about one pound vs Dec.
