January was to be my grand return to running, but it wasn't meant to be:
Run Miles Planned/Miles Ran: 60.7/ 27 - Balls. This month got off to such a great start, but then my dumb pelvis had to thrust it's way into things. That's what she said?
Spin classes Planned/Attended: 4/ 3 - Eh. Not bad. I missed the one due to two toddlers with night terrors that kept me up until my alarm went off at 4:40 am.
Swim Meters Planned/Meters Swam: 2400 m/ 6200m - I KICKED ASS! I'm really happy with the way swimming is going, and I am so grateful to KDUB for hosting the 70.3 challenge which helped me get over the proverbial hump and start swimming more than a few laps at a time.
Rest Days Planned/Rest Days Taken: as many as I need/<----- good thing I wrote that because I took 11. Might have been a bit of discouraged-induced laziness at work here. But, I suppose it's better than worsening my injuries.
Highest Run Mileage Week: 10.5. I was so proud of my double digits. Come back to me.....
Fitness Classes Planned/Attended: 10 / 5 - Man, these figures all look like hell when I write them out! We'll see if this post makes a repeat for February, this is freaking brutal! Really though, I dropped the twice weekly core class because I'm pretty sure my friend and I were the only ones under the age of 87. OK. Not really, but it was an easy class geared toward the older set.
Races Completed: Ahhh, none.
Current Book: The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. Excellent, excellent book. Highly recommend it.
Current Song: It's gotta be Dave Matthews Band, Say Goodbye. Find me a sexier song, seriously. My god. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7L54JInUp8Q
Current Triumph: I may have run yesterday. And it might have been incredible. And I might have jumped and danced around a bit more than was socially acceptable on a group run.
Current Goal: Run. Remain injury free.
Current Happiness: My kids. (This would be the cutest kids ever part.)
