#WorkoutWednesday – January Stats

WORKOUT WEDNESDAY JAN STATS.jpg

First month of 2017 done, so how did it go?

| 79.4 miles cycled | 33.5 miles ran | 1 Personal Best | 100m in the pool accomplished |

I’ll be honest, I didn’t hit all of my targets. Those targets were:

  • 8.30 minute mile pace when running.
  • Ride 100 miles on my bike.
  • Swim 100m (in one go)

The swim 100m was a definite success! I’ve gone from just being able to do the odd 50m in a session (with mainly backstroke in-between) to a 5x100m drill set…in one month! I genuinely shocked myself! the 100m isn’t easy, but I’ll slowly work my way up to 200m for February.

I actually got a PB this month, which I didn’t actually realise until a week later…

I was looking through my stats to see how I was doing compared to last Summer’s attempts at running. And there it was. A new PB. During a track session with my local Triathlon club I had managed to set a new PB for 5k at 24:54 minutes. I have no idea how good this is in general, but for me I’m happy to be improving. My pace was also 8:15 minutes per mile, but I do need to work on this being a consistent pace when I’m running.

I didn’t manage ti ride the 100 miles I’d had planned either, which I am gutted about! I just felt a bit uneasy on the rides I missed to go out when it was threatening to snow…especially if I was going out on my own. Or maybe I just found it too hard to resist the temptation of staying warm and dry…

So what do I plan to do going into February?

  • Continue to work on the 8.30 minute per miles pace to make it consistent
  • Ride 100 miles on my bike (and actually achieve it this month!)
  • Swim 200m (in one go)

How did your January go? Let me know!
