January 2013 - Training Totals

Ironman CDA training has started in earnest - well at least the base training has.  That means its time to start tracking my training!

January's totals:
Bike:9h 44m  - 127.58 Mi  (should be more like 149.5 miles if you include my spin class)
Run:15h 06m 59s  - 71.75 Mi
Swim:14h 15m  - 40737.1 Yd
Strength:1h 00m
Skiing:6h 00m
Spinning Class:1h 45m

 by comparison:

December's totals:
Bike:9h 5m  - 115.43 Mi                                                                                               
Run:10h 05m  - 48.53 Mi
Swim:9h 10m  - 24901 Yd
Skiing:21h 00m

So, January saw less skiing (boo) and more swim/bike/run.  A boat-load of swimming.  A pretty heathly increase in running (nearly 25 more miles in Jan), and a steady increase on the bike.

I think my fitness is really coming along.  I had a 2.5 hour aerobic ride on the trainer Saturday morning, before we left for Steamboat.  I was dreading having dead legs on Sunday for skiing, but I was pleasantly suprised.  My legs were super fresh and I skied from 9:30 to 3:30 and felt great all day.  Pretty cool!

Pretty soon, however, I'll be logging 150 miles on the bike per WEEK, not per month.  I know its coming, but that doesn't make it any easier to process.
