Now for record keeping. January was my first month to keep halfway decent training records. It is all scribbled in my handy-dandy notebook, so I had to go back and do the calculations by hand. Here is what I've come up and my thoughts about each category:
My January Totals
Indoor Cycling = 7.25 hrs
Outdoor Cycling = 3.5 hrs, 45miles
Thoughts - Indoor cycling isn't fun. I would prefer more outdoor time and less indoor spinning, but I'm proud of myself for getting on the trainer rather than sitting on the couch complaining about the road conditions during the icy/snowy start to this month.
Swimming = 2000M
Thoughts - UGGGHH. I am not a happy camper about this! I would have done a LOT more swimming if the stupid pool hadn't been down all month.
Indoor running = 0
Outdoor running = 9.5 hrs 46.2 miles
Thoughts - Yay for me for running outside in the cold and snowy weather! This is about the mileage that CrAzY RunBubbaRun (who will do a FREEZING COLD 50K this weekend) does in a single week, but it was probably my highest volume running month ever! I'm happy with this.
Core/Strength = 1340 reps
Thoughts - I have a hard time getting motivated to do these types of workouts and should have done more. However, this is once again probably my hightest volume month. I hope to see this trend up rather than down over time.
All-in-all, I am pleased with myself except for the swimming (which really wasn't my fault).
However, I'm off to a bad start for February. I spent my training time adding up last month's accomplishments and may end up recording a big GOOSE EGG for today. D'oh!! Live and learn!!
