Jan Summary


  • 25.6 miles running
  • 21.3 miles walking
  • 5 upper body strength sessions
  • 3 yoga sessions
  • 1 chiro appt
  • 1 orthopedic appt
  • 1 eye appt
  • 1 primary care doc appt
  • 1 mammo appt
  • 2 kids back off to college


  • New insurance = many appts establishing self as a new patient appts on top of the usual mayhem in January.  I think next week is the first week for a while with zero appts.  Yay.
  • Not getting outside as often as I'd like, but it's a start.  And since I despise the treadmill, if I don't get outside, I don't run.  At least I'm doing something.  In another 4 weeks or so, it should be light outside  long enough after work to run.  That will help a lot.
  • Stopped doing yoga in favor of upper body strength work.  Ideally, I should be doing both. 
  • I'm actually happy about my weight at the moment.  Usually I have 5lbs or so to lose after the holidays.  Not this year.  Yay me! 


  • Husband & I signed up to run a 5K in a few weeks.  It's on his birthday. :-)
  • Try to get outside more.
  • Get serious about doing strength *and* yoga (not one or the other).


  1. Great month! Enjoy the 5k coming up. Getting into new doctors and new insurance can give you a nice new perspective. Not fun, but worth it in the end.

  2. A very nice race to run. I have just learned how important is to do upper body strength.
