This month saw short days, and I struggled to keep as many runs as I could outside. I still blame the treadmill slightly for my injury last winter. My goal is no more than one treadmill run a week, but it isn't always easy and sometimes I have no choice. It's either sit on my butt or treadmill, and in the end, the treadmill is still the better option.
I incorporated some crosstraining back in this month, since I let my mileage drop down some. It was nice to break the weights back out.
Circuits w/ weights x 7
Ab workout x 1
Yoga x 2
Running mileage = 99
Track workouts x 4
Races x 0
This is the first time I've continued to hit the track during the winter. Let's hope I can keep it up. I'd love to head into the spring racing season faster than I was last year. Oh wait, last year I was injured and missed all the spring races. Okay, maybe I should just say I'd love to head into the spring racing season uninjured ;-) That alone would be an improvement!
Bundle up and head outdoors folks! Once you get moving, it's really not that bad. I promise :-)
