January Stats & February Goals

Although the calendar says January it sure didn't feel like it.  Very mild, hardly any snow, I love it!

January Stats:

Pilates Reformer (N2U CT Challenge) = 4
Pilates Ball (N2U CT Challenge) = 3
Spin = 4 / 64 miles
Swim = 13 / 12 miles
Yoga = 3
P90X = 3 (Chest & Back (1), Shoulders & Arms (1), Legs & Back (1), Abs (2))

Total Miles = 78
Total Time = 31.5 Hours

2012 Nike Go the Distance Total / Goal = 12 miles / 200 miles

I am bummed that I ended up with a nasty head cold the last 3 days of the month.  I was hoping to make it through the winter without getting sick.  No such luck. 

I was signed up for a Foam Roller class but it was cancelled because they only had 3 people signed up for it. So in lieu of that I decided to spend more time in the pool working on form.  

Injury status - Bleh.  Still injured & not running.   I started ART on the 24th.  So far I have gone 3 times.   He said if I didn't have a 50% improvement in 5 weeks he will refer me to another specialist.   Until I get through the 5 weeks I am reserving judgement.  I will do a more detailed post on this later.

Favorite Gear - SwiMP3 - This was a Christmas gift from Steve.  It has come in handy since I have been upping my time in the pool.  I plan to do a review on this in the near future.

Weight - This month I lost 5 of the 8 pounds I gained post injury.   I am pretty happy about that.

February Exercise Goals

Swim - 18 miles
Pilates Reformer - 5
Pilates Ball - 3
Yoga - 4
P90X - 8 (The new videos will be used for the N2U CT Challenge)

The last spin class I took aggravated my injury so I am taking some time off from spin again...grrr. 

I am seriously considering signing up for a Total Immersion workshop in February.

February plans for addressing the injury

ART - 4 more weeks
Acupuncture - 3 sessions


  1. Whoo hoo, way to rock the miles in the pool! Keep it up! My swim friends have always told me that you have to swim more to really see improvements.

  2. I had a SwimP3 that I bought on Ebay from China. It only held like 20 songs but I only paid like $35 bucks for it too! Anyway, I left it at LAC by accident and I'm so mad at myself :( I loved that thing!

  3. Great job in January! It honestly feels more like October but no leaves on the trees. When is winter going to get here?!
