January Wrap Up

I feel like I just did my wrap up for December and here I am doing one for January. That's okay by me, though, because that just means it's one more month of winter gone.

And I'm really getting tired of winter.

Still, I managed an impressive 82.7 miles of running for the month of January! I had to add it up several times just to make sure I wasn't crazy. That's 30 more miles than I ran in December.

Those miles include a 5 mile race, speedwork done in the dark, and running on ice.

I also managed 7 strength training sessions. Not as many as I would have liked but not too far off my goal. I figure that in order to hit my 100 strength training sessions by the end of the year I need to do either 8 or 9 a month. I'm sure I'll make up for it, though.

I suspect February's mileage will be a little less as I struggle to fit in running around my bootcamp class, the snowmaggedon that is predicted to hit us this first week, and a nagging ache in my upper left leg. Dear leg, get your act together. I have a LONG list of races I'm signed up for.

And with that, I'm off to tackle February.

I second that request to your leg!

I hope your leg gets better! And PLEASE tell me you didn't go running tonight! Stay safe.

Yeah, geez, Erin's leg! Get with the program!

7 strength-training sessions is pretty decent for January! Almost two per week. I need to make a goal like your 100 for the year. Smart lady you are!
