January was a good training month. I started out with not much of a plan for my swimming and biking, and settled into a pretty nice routine for both. In running, I continued my training for my 2 upcoming half marathons.
I raced a 5k and was 10 seconds slower than my PR, on a longer course, with some nasty stomach issues.
I ran/raced the Fresh Pond 5 miler (more accurately 4.6er) 3 times and improved my time by 30 seconds each time.
I ran in snow, a lot of snow!
I got used to my new bike!
I made strides in the pool.
I managed to do plyometrics 2 times/week for 15 minutes (after 2 key runs).
I managed to do abs and pilates 2 times/week for 30 minutes.
I started using swim cords.
I started training with heart rate.
RUN: 254 miles
SWIM:10.5 miles - I know, way too little but have skipped lots of swims since mom arrived...
BIKE: 560 miles (approximately since I've been on the trainer) OR 31 hours
Great months for running and biking mileage. Not so great for swimming. I plan to bump up swimming a lot once I finish my half marathons and decrease my running mileage. Until then, I will do my best to get in at least 3 one mile swims each week. Can I do it? Will see!
