I don't tend to do reviews of my month, but I figured why not. I've been following a loose plan - that is, I'm still in the base phase of the Ironman training and I'm trying to just stay active, work on form a little bit and not get too ahead of myself. I'm pretty happy with my month though all in all.
Totals for January:
Swim - 11,000 yards (two tests in which I bettered my 100 average by 8 seconds!)
Bike - 172.1 miles (all indoors, but I feel like I'm getting stronger, at least on the trainer)
Run - 69.6 miles (countless miles running in circles at the gym... can't beat the people watching)
Cross - 1 hour
Kickboxing - 2 hours (I quit after the first two classes of the year)
Total time: 26:17:40
This will probably be my lowest month of the year and I'm totally fine with that. I'm building my base, staying injury free, and enjoying the schedule.
February though, is a little different. With it only being 28 days, Tom and I are revamping our eating and seeing how it goes. Nothing crazy, but I went to the grocery today and bought meals for the next 10 days so that I'm not tempted to eat out (although the exception is Friday when I'll be celebrating my birthday with our dear friends). I'm also going to do a 28 day boot camp including push ups, pull ups and core work. Just a little personal kick start for the next 28 days. I'll let you know how it goes.
How was your January? Any highs and lows?
