January recap and FitFluential

Posted Jan 31 2012 7:57am

First of all, I’m excited to announce that I’m joining the FitFluential team! I follow a number of bloggers who are part of this network, and they have had great things to say about their experience.  I’m looking forward to the opportunity to learn more from each other.

January Recap: At the end of each month, I plan to revisit my 2012 goal post as part of a monthly recap to track how my progress and to record my stats.  Here’s January!

Running Related

  • January stats: 13 runs- total 89.4 miles; 9 spin classes- total 200 miles; 1 swim- 1.2 miles; 17.25 walking miles and weights 2x/week
  • Cross Training Challenge: Check! I went to the Ball-ates class at our gym
  • Running Buddy: No success here yet… but I haven’t been working too hard

Personal and Family Balance

  • Evening quiet time:  I’ve been trying to read most evenings before bed, although most nights I don’t always get too far before falling asleep
  • Computer balance: Sticking to my plan so far of early am, naptime and/or pm computer time rather than getting off and on
  • Reading: Finished “Running Without Pain” (Bridge) and “Generous Justice” (Keller)… and hundreds of kids books, that should count for something  :)

I’m happy with this month’s stats… I’ve been running low mileage with only 3 runs a week, but plan to build it slowly over the next several weeks.  The highlight of the month was definitely the Houston half marathon weekend and meeting other blogging friends! I’m also excited to have kicked off the Purposeful Running stories , starting with Jamie’s.

Final update… just last night I decided to leap into Twitter land.  I still know very little, but I look forward to connecting with many of you there.  Let me know if you tweet so we can follow each other!

My handle is @mommyrunfaster, or you can find me here!
