Sometimes (okay, a lot of times) I get overwhelmed at life. There's so much to do, so much I want to do, but I'm not a superhero. I can't get it all done. Most times I just blame myself for being a horrible mother (seriously, moms don't we all think this?)
Anyway, I am accomplishing a lot. I work part time, I stay at home with the boy, I make sure the house isn't a complete mess (please do not show up unannounced!), and I am getting in lots of training.
Seriously, I'm exhausted. I'm doing as much swimming, if not more, than when I was training for Ironman. I'm doing nearly as much running as I would if I were training for a marathon. It's hard for me to wrap my head around when I'm training for a race that's going to take me less than an hour, but then I remind myself - it's the WORLD FREAKIN' CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!!
January, see ya later!
Swimming - 29,800 yards ~ 16.9 miles
I am soooo chlorinated!!! My skin is cracked and flaky. My head itches like crazy. All I smell is chlorine. And yet, I'm still loving swimming.
Running - 86.83 miles
I missed a few runs which probably would have gotten me over 100 miles this month. I got the running bug back and I'm enjoying running again. I had a good race this month along with a kick-ass run test.
Strength Training - 2.25 hours
Coach has a challenge for the month of February - do three strength workouts a week, every week. I love challenges. I'm hoping this number is a lot bigger in February.
YMCA Visits - 11
Cost Per Visit - $3.42
