KMs Ran: 216km…my highest since April 2011. BooYah.
# of spin classes: 8
# of training sessions/cross training: 17
Rest Days: 5 – every Monday baby.
Favourite Jan workout: My fav this month were the combos from this past Friday and Saturday:
- Friday: pre-work 10.5km run; killer training session where we worked back, chest, arms etc.
- Sat: Tempo and interval spin class; cross training session that consisted of a million pushups (ok…100), planks, squats etc..
By Monday, DOMs had set it hard and my back/upper body was so achy I actually thought I had the flu.
Favourite piece of training equipment: My Knuckle Lights.
Current Reads: Trying to read Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John Le Carre. I just feel stupid as I read it.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: This is actually the hubs doing, but he bought me a beauty of a bag back from Vegas:
Current Song: Stronger (What doesn’t kill you) by Kelly Clarkson. Now…this isn’t a song that is usually in my wheel well but I like it…
Current Wish List: For winter to keep on keepin’ on. Last night and this morning, the temp outside was:
Also to stay injury free (duh) and try to get more quality sleep.
Current Bane of my Existence: My interval (Z5) speed workouts. I know they are supposed to be tough and I know that in marathon training, speed isn’t the end goal but these workouts are my least favourite ones to do.
Fav Recipe: African Peanut Stew. When the hubs was away I ate this either at dinner/lunch almost every day. Apparently when I cook for one, I am a lazy cook.
Current Blessings: The ongoing support/encouragement I get from not only the hubs but my friends and coaches. I would be hard pressed to do all of this training without them….
Current Excitement/Freak out: Officially registered for my Spring Marathon. Yikes.
How was your January? Are you happy/disappointed with how Winter currently is in your neck of the woods?
