january 2009

01/09 started off with a bang. i ran a satisfying half-pr in disney and survived a 4-hour marathon the next day. (i still recommend the goofy, the entire weekend was a blast!) after 5.5 months of training for the goofy challenge, i gave myself a full week off and then eased back into running for the last two weeks of january. my mileage is a lot lower than i'd like, but i did technically take 2 weeks off from running when you add up all the rest & race recovery days.

total mileage: 120.85
time spent running: 18:06:09
days off: 14 (all scheduled rest days)
abs/yoga: 11 ab workouts/5 yoga sessions (a world record in both categories)
avg resting hr: 49.73
avg max hr: 181.13

  3. You had a great January. I can not wait until I am at your skill level.

    ps... thanks for the encouraging words on my last post. It was motivating, and helped me have a great run today!

  4. I had a friend who ran the Disney 1/2 then full. He was done about 1/2 way into the full. Sounds like fun, but grueling. Here's to February being even better than January. Keep up the great work.

    My best month ever was 100.3 and I almost threw myself a damn parade!

    Great job! I have to say that the Goofy is a goal of mine one day!

  10. Wait! How did you outdistance me this month? I got 114 for the month. Oh yeah...you ran a marathon the day after the half marathon and I went on roller coasters. That explains it.

  11. Hey Lindsay, Grreat month. what's ur next goal race?
    i went back & read ur posts labeled "800s" .I've heard that they can predict marathon time, but not sure i follow how it works? Looks like you were doing 8x 800 at 3:15 and then u PR'd. I also see u hit 2x16 + one 20 on the way to PR. My plan is 1x: 16,18,20.
    Any advice for me? I want to run 3:45 come May. feel free2email dean_delaware_aflac *at* Yahoo.
