January is done and things are on track. Added swimming twice weekly to my routine of three runs a week. Getting closer to a mile swim - can already do the distance but have to take a few rests. January results:
Running - 83.2 miles
Swimming - 8.3 miles
Weight - Lost 5 pounds
Stretches - 22 reps, 5x weekly of squats, crunches, back extensions, lying adduction, lying abduction, standing adduction and standing abduction.
February is going to be a little different because I have to travel for a week and won't be near a pool and might only be able to run twice. I also have a 10 mile run and potentially a HM to taper into and recover from. Not setting any huge milestones this month. I will be happy to run 60 miles and swim 7.5. I am also not overly concerned with the weight this month but will try to maintain.
Starting weight 187
Finishing weight 187.8 - within a pound of last week is not a worry. Accounting for the loss and/or gain of water weight. Long term weight is the important consideration.
Tuesday - 4 miles
Thursday - 7 miles
Saturday - 10 miles
Monday - 1950 yards
Wednesday - 2050 yards
Did 1 set of 20 reps two times (Mon/Tues) and 22 reps three times (Thurs/Fri/Sat) this week of each: squats, crunches, back extensions, lying adduction, lying abduction, standing adduction and standing abduction.
Eating: Under 2330 calories six of seven days.
Monday - 2200 yards swimming
Tuesday - 4 mile run
Wednesday - 2300 yards swimming and then taper into:
Saturday - Lockport Y-10 Miler
1 set of 22 reps (two days) of each: squats, crunches, back extensions, lying adduction, lying abduction, standing adduction and standing abduction.
Eating - Stay under 2300 calories six days.
May the force be with you!
