Jan Stats

January 2016 was a whirlwind, wonderful month filled with adventure.

Swim: 0
Bike: 10 miles, 1 ride
Run: 173.1 miles, 12 runs, 1 race
Strength: 11 times
Yoga: 8 times

Doesn't look like I'm going to be swimming again until after the Umstead 100, I suspended my team membership until April. But it will be a glorious return to the pool then. When I wasn't swimming, there was 173 miles of running, which is a new personal record, narrowly beating December's 170 miles. And I skipped a 17 mile run on Sunday, last day of the month. After the 21 miles I put up on Saturday I just couldn't get out there again, guess I needed some extra recovery time after the 50 mile race. Oh yea, and I finished a 50 mile trail race this month - first 50 finish! My cross training was almost daily strength work either in the gym or bodyweight stuff at home. I've been doing 50 pushups a day (when I actually get down to do them).

The highlight of the month, obviously, was the week I spent in San Diego with my parents. The race was the only workout I got while we were out there. All of the other time was spent sightseeing and whalewatching. So much fun!

Topless Picture Day!
Jan 10 was warm enough for me to drive home from church with the top down. This is one of my annual goals, to drive with the top down once every month this year. Jan is done!

Then it snowed

Near the end of the month we got our first snowfall of the winter. It was about half an inch of ice with another inch or so of snow on top of it. Just enough to keep us inside of the house for 4 days straight, but we never lost power or ran out of food (or beer).

After I got home from San Diego with the Finishers glass from the San Diego 50, Kelley found some Coronado Brewing Company IPA in the grocery here. Made for a fitting celebration for my PDR.

Finally in kid news, we got to plan some of the spring stuff with Evil Genius' Indian Princess tribe. Going to be lots of fun!

I hope your month had as much fun as mine did! February is looking like more of the same. No swimming, tons of running, lots of fun times with the kids.

January was kind of bleh for me in terms of workouts due to being sick and having that stupid RA flare. And February hasn't started off great either as I've had some pain in my hip and around my IT band. I took a 2 week hiatus from running but will try to get out there tomorrow night if it's not too freakishly cold. I think the treadmill was the culprit for this latest issue so I am going to try to avoid using that going forward!

I'm glad you had a solid month of January! That's a lot of miles!!!
