January Recap

Well, a very good month for me.  Oh, I've had months with much more miles but comparing January to previous years, this is my highest mileage in January ever.  ALL those miles were outside!
24 hours includes my other cross training too; miles are just for running
Miles Run:  121 miles and 25 times run.  Woohoo!

Weight Sessions:  9 weight sessions

Yoga sessions:  9 yoga sessions

Races run:  2 races.  This is part of the reason that I have more mileage.  I ran the Auto Show Shuffle 5k and the Brooksie Way Chill at the Mills 5k.  Both new races for me but it also meant that I ran on my rest days and ran six days a week the last couple weeks.  I've also got another race coming up again on Sunday so back to six days again.  Also, I did the Beer Run for SEMR which was the largest group run I've been been involved in and also added a few miles testing the route.

Now I don't normally recap the weather in these posts but I looked at the temperature of my runs for the entire month and have these stats:

High Temperature:  37 degrees - Windchill 31
Low Temperature:  -13 degrees - Windchill -33

Average High:  13
Average Low:  2

Over 31 inches of Snow in Detroit for January - the highest amount ever in January.

I ran the coldest run I've ever done in the entire time I've been running(almost 5 years).  That -33 windchill was insane!

As you can see from the calendar, no rest for the weary.  Only two full days off from activity but I did take off every Friday from running - my scheduled rest day.

How did you do this month?  Did you hibernate from the cold?

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!

  1. You crazy -- just looking at this recap gives me frostbite! =)

    Between work travel, working in the auto industry + NAIAS, and getting sick, I'm calling January a bust. All the more reason to ramp up in February, right?
