January 2008 is in the books!




You know it’s cold when you have frost on your back

My January was remarkable on several levels. First, I turned in my 10k PR of 49:59 on New Year’s Day. Second, I ran a half and a full marathon on back to back days. Third, we had two snow days in Atlanta and colder than normal temperatures. I included this picture from a recent run where my sweat frosted over on me. Yikes!

Through all of that, I managed to still get my workouts in, not to mention tapering and recovering. All in all, I am happy with my training volume for this past month and feel well in control of my Ironman dreams that are now only 170 days away.

January Statistics:
Swim – 15550 yards (8.8 miles)
Bike – 155.7 miles
Run – 73.11 miles

Lower volume than I expected, but it was all quality. On to February.

Speaking of February – this whole leap year thing really stinks. Has anyone noticed that the extra day is a Friday?!? For those of us on salary, that’s a day we’re working for free.
