In the spirit of accountability, here are my training numbers from January. It was a bit disappointing overall given the strong start I had to the year. The pie chart shows a significant run focus in my workouts this month, with ~ 75% more of my time being spent running than cycling. I did manage to make it to the pool a couple of times, but I kept my sessions short – focusing on the feel of my stroke in the water and trying to not overwork my shoulders.
The performance management chart clearly shows the delineation of school starting back (yes, I’m a 2nd year graduate student at Georgia Tech while still working full time– Insane!!). I had just one good run after that on the 17th, and NADA-ZILCH-NOTHING through 1/31. The weather didn’t help as we had a couple of days with icy roads. Still – that is no excuse to not get on the trainer.
