Hello February

January was a great training month for me.  I really got back in the swing of things!  I went back and looked through my logs – I haven’t missed a workout since November.  Go me!

I finished off the month this morning with loooooooong sets in the pool (workout appropriately titled “Molly Loves To Swim Long Sets”) followed by strength training at the gym.  I *heart* the medicine ball.  That is all.

My totals aren’t as high as people who have earlier season IMs than I do, but they are pretty good for me in January.  I’ve only had 1 month ever (October 2009, the month before IM AZ) with higher swim yardage. 

First triathlon of the year is just 4 weeks away!  I’m hoping our Recovery e21 race kits are in by then.  Check out their Facebook page to see the awesome Splish suits we are getting!

Swim: 34,552 yards (19.6 miles)
Bike: 218.4 miles
Run: 77.4 miles
Strength: 5 hours

That is some insane swim yardage. Go you!

As for the no missed workout thing, you give the rest of us schmucks a bad name (and that would be SLACKER!)
