January and (some of) February Recap

It's been a busy and...well, interesting couple of months.  I have barely had time to get through my day-to-day business, let alone update my blog.

January was a solid month.  I continued training for my marathon on April 7th.  Training went really well!  I even continued to keep my swimming, cycling, yoga, and strength training going strong.  However, all month, I was fighting a sinus infection.  Took it easy one week, and thought I had kicked it.  I ended January on a great note:

Running: 140 miles
Strength sessions: 13
Swim yards: 3600 yards
Spinning session: 1
Yoga: 7 sessions
Races run: 3 (2 virtual, 1 IRL)

I am pleased with the yoga and strength sessions.  I would like to see my swimming and spinning increase again!

Along came the first week of February came along and the infection came back with a vengeance.  I had to take an entire week off.  I don't think I have done that since I started running 3 1/2 years ago!  I was down for the count.  The following week, I took it easy so as not to end up sick again.  Then on the 6th, one of my Cavaliers, Sadie, got really sick and ended up needed emergency surgery.  Once she got home, she needed to be supervised and given medications round the clock.  Finally on the 10th, we got the news that my husband's grandmother had passed away.  The memorial service was the following weekend.  Needless to say, this month has been rough on training. I will do an official recap at the end of the month, but I am slowly getting back on track!

I have run 3 half marathons this year to move towards my goal of 13in2013!  I will update my 13in2013 page with the recaps!
