Well I didn't run tonight as I had planned. My plan was to go out about now for a run but it's raining pretty hard out so guess I'm staying put for the night. Enjoying a Kit Kat as I'm typing this instead.
Looking back at October and all I can say is that I'm so off my trianing program. So bad! First the fact that I only ran 8 times is horrible. Really am I that unmotivated to run? Yes. Grrr...but that is going to change in December. I have a heavy running month on the way to running the Walt Disney World Marathon. For the month I ran a total of 49.73 miles. Down from October and September. The opposite of the way it should be. Of course I had just moved to Florida in September and running was my excuse just to get outside of these four walls. Then in October I started to work. No matter how unmottivated I am I know that I must run in December. November I ran 8 times for 49.73 miles.
October I ran 10 times for 62.35 miles
September I ran 16 times for 105.21 miles
August I ran 3 times for 27.23 miles.
July I ran 15 times for 66.54 miles
June I ran 12 times for 15.92 miles
May I ran 1 times for 3.08 miles.
April I ran 16 times for 28.23 miles.
March I ran 18 times for 91.35 miles.
February I ran 18 times for 75.14 miles.
January I ran 24 times for 124.97 miles.
On the flip side I am swimming again! Wahoo! I started off with a few lap swims on my own till I found a few swim mates one of which is a swim coach. So a few mornings a week I go over and swim for an hour. I'm really focuses on my swimming and my speed is coming back. But I'm not letting intervals and speed get to me yet as I am really working on the basics of my strokes and turns. Oh and when I say strokes I mean the everything but breaststroke. That is just a lost cause. Since I only swim an hour in these workouts my yardage is down from the rest of the year. But that is okay. That is something I'll slowly add week by week. For November I swam 34,375 yards.
October I swam 2,700 yards.
September I swam zip, nada, nothing
August I swam 25,000 SCY
July I swam 49,900 SCY
June I swam 43,650 SCY and 4,000 LCM
May I swam 55,000 SCY
April I swam 46,050 SCY
February I swam 53,250 SCY
January I swam 46,750 SCY
329,500 SCY's for 2010.
So that was November. I'm a little behind in yardage from 2009 which I swam over 344,000 yards. Craziness! Even with almost not swimming for two months! I am so going to swim so much this month to crush 2009!
I got some swimming and running to do in November. Hopefully next month about this time when I'm writting My December Workouts I'll be bragging how well I've done in 2010. Since you've read this far now is the time that I ask you to support my run with Team In Training by clicking HERE and donate. Thank You!
