Totals: Month Ending January 2011

It was a nice start to the year. I was able to meet most of my goals, really missing only on 1) wanted to have in 40+ hours training and, 2) over 20,000 yds in the pool. Factor in crappy weather, focus on the Real Job©, and travel to a race destination and I lost a bit of time. But I'm focused.
Two great things about the month were the duathlon in Texas that gave me a good result (Hello USAT, um post the par score already!!). And that I really started to get into, and maintain, a good deal of time doing strength training and yoga using the Wii Fitness Plus gaming system. From planks to lunges to stretching, my back has not felt this good in a long time. Will it mean anything come race season? We'll see.

Woohoo, You switched to yards instead of miles. Seems more impressive doesn't it. Those are especially solid numbers due to the weather and your normal hatred of the trainer. Keep whatever speed work you are doing on those indoor tracks and keep doing them outside as those DU splits were fast.
