January 2013 Training Stats

February 1, 2013 — Leave a comment

January was a good month of training consisting of a mix of road running (67%), trail running (11%), and cycling sessions (22%.)  I seem to be in a funk lately and the runs and rides always provide a great opportunity to clear my mind.

I made a 3-day trip to Chicago; but stayed on track, logging 28.7 miles along the Lakefront Trail (12.27, 10.38, & 6.04)…chilly miles to boot (at least for this Northern Californian.)

As far as new equipment, zip.  Though I did buy a new pair of Kinvara 3s to have in the queue.  It’s hard to pass up “20% off sale price” offer from Road Runner Sports and the four pair of road shoes in my rotation are in various stages of “maturity.”

Anyway, here are the stats for the month that was January 2013:

Training Program(s):

  • 18-week program for the Big Sur Marathon on April 28th.

On the plan, Monday is a 60 to 80-minute cycling session to add some cross training.
