Just the stats ... and a little more

This wasn't my best workout week of the month. I got busy and lazy on Thursday and Friday (excuses, not reasons) and I didn't make it to the pool at all. Again, just couldn't muster the umph to get there. But, it was my longest distance week, since I went on two longer rides - 17.67 and 18.65. Don't you like the tenths and hundredths of miles. That's what happens when you record workouts on a phone app with gps mileage calculations. Right down to the hundredths. They add up.

Anyway, here's the lowdown on tri-training for the month of January. I'm happiest with the cycling. I went twice a week for three of the four weeks this month and starting increasing my mileage. I didn't think I'd be able to ride this much in January, but we've had plenty of high 40, 50 degree, sunny days and I've managed to get out on my bike. Yay! My goal for February: at least one 25 mile ride and two rides a week, weather permitting!

I need to swim more. My goal for February: swimming twice a week and adding open water swim drills each workout.

Walking/running was fine. I'm still on track with my Couch to 5K program and fairly happy with the progress. My new running shoes should come in this week and that will undoubtedly make me run faster, jump higher ... all that good stuff. My goal for February: stay on track with the C to 5K; do a hill workout once a week. (I hate hills, this will be good for me, right?!)

So, here are the stats for January:

Swimming: 4 swims, 3.63 miles (256 laps)
Cycling: 7 rides, 111.63 miles
Walking/running: 14 workouts, 41.19 miles

For a grand total in January of 25 workouts and 156.45 miles.

Not a bad start to the year. Hoping to up those numbers in February.

You are doing great Beth! Your workouts sound awesome and you still have time to read books?? I just checked out your 2015 reading challenge. I really enjoy Alexander McCall Smith too. I need to do a book post soon. xxoo
