Well as another month comes to an end, I'm forced to reflect on my training. I feel pretty good about my running. Yesterday I ran my first real hard long run, 16 miles. Man that marathon just seems impossible at this point. But I know it's not so I'll keep on training and stick with the plan. As for the biking still only doing the spinning class thing once a week, but that's about to change along with the weather. oh and pretty soon I'll have to get in the pool too.

65.0 milesTime: 3h 15m 00sAvg. Pace: 3:00/mile

Thursday was a duathlon workout.... I got off work at ~ 0745 at the gym by 0815. On the treadmill for 4 miles 7:40/mi pace. Then spinning class, killer hill workout, nearly puked towards the end. Then back on the treadmill for 2 more miles. Then to bed. Not a bad workout I think I will make that a regular gig on thurs. since I can go to that spinning class.

Well this past week was another good running week, culminating with Partner's in Pain race. This a 5 k race in which male and female teams times are added together along with there ages to determine the winner. I ran a PR 5 k at 22.26, Jayne,my girlfriend and partner in the race, did not do so well so we did not do well as a team. Not that my time help much either since I finished 104th out of 450 or something. But a PR is still a PR and I was happy. Some friends and I ran the course once before the race as a warm up and once after the race as a cool down, for a total of 9.3 miles for the day. That put me at 24.3 miles for the week.

Well as the 1 st month of the new year comes to an end, I'm on my way to fullfiill my goals. The running is going fairly well. I ran a total of 71.3 miles in jan. the biking has been a little less productive as the weather has not allowed much outside riding and what there has been has been on the mtn bike. However, I have been going to a spinning class once a week and that is sure to help me once I can get outside. I have yet to get into the pool though and that;s ok with me.
