Off the back of my last post, when I stated that I was a self-confessed number cruncher I thought that some may be interested to see my monthly training numbers for January.
January is essentially a "Base Building" month and I use it to get me back into the structured training regime after the "Off-Period" through the end of November and December. Most of my sessions throughout January are endurance based with some intensity thrown in occasionally to keep me honest! The structure for the month was a simple four week month with no rest week scheduled. In terms of targets I had some loose ones: Run over 100 miles in the month and get at least 5 hours cycling per week.
So here are the numbers in the book from January 2008:
Total Workouts - 32 including
11 cycle sessions
11 run sessions
8 swim sessions
2 ice skating sessions
Total Time - 44 Hours 47 Mins (11 Hours 12 Mins Weekly Average)
Cycling Time - 22 Hours 31 Mins
Running Time - 12 Hours 10 Mins
Swimming Time - 7 Hours 2 Mins
Total Mileage - 515 Miles
Cycling Mileage - 398 Miles
Running Mileage - 104 Miles
Swimming Mileage - 12.5 Miles
All in all not a bad start to the year and the most consistent January I have in the past four years. It has provided a good basis to gradually start building the total time and mileage. I still need to swim more to strengthen that part of my racing (but then again who doesn't!).
