January 2011

Is it really February already??

 I'm "borrowing" this format from Racing With Babes and Caution: Redhead Running... with a few tweaks!


Total Distance: 335.8 KM (208.6 mi)

Highest Weekly Mileage: 94.4 KM (58.7 mi)

# Runs: 27

# Doubles: 3

# Non-Run Workouts: 3

# Rest days: 5

Races: None this month.

Favourite Run(s): Barefoot beach running in Antigua!

Most Hardcore Run: Long run the morning after returning home... +30C to -30C overnight was no fun at all.

Book of the Month: Fave of the month was The Maze Runner by James Dashner, currently reading Size 14 is Not Fat Either by Meg Cabot

Song of the Month: Any and all Bruno Mars *swoon*

Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Jersey Shore

Obsession of the Month: theweathernetwork.com

Indulgence of the Month: Countless strawberry daiquiris in Antigua

Drink of the Month: see above - but don't worry, I'm back on the h2o!

Current Wish-List: laundry fairy

Current Need: epsom salt

Triumph of the Month: nailing pretty much every scheduled workout

Current Bane of my Existence: snowy sidewalks/roads and frigid temps

Current Goal: to shed the Christmas/Antigua weight

Current Blessings: the best support system I could ask for

Current Excitement: strong possibility of a PJ day snow day tomorrow!





How was your month?

Lisa said...

I hate to be the one to break this to you, but there is no such thing as the laundry fairy. ;-)

Heather said...

Great month! I want a snow day, but without the snow. :)

The Jesse said...

Emily said...

I ditto the bane of your existence. And 27 runs? Good god woman, you are a machine!

Bethany + Ryan said...

i'm definitely getting a snow day tomorrow, well, i hope!!! damn, Marlene, you had an amazing month! great mileage!!! I think i had like 110 miles this month, oh well, i'll get more next month! I don't think i know anyone who sticks to their training as well as you do!

Laura said...

Laundry fairy, house cleaning fairy, snow clearing/shovelling fairy...
WHERE ARE THEY?!
Awesome job on Jan...

Jill said...

These are always so great to read, you had a great January! And hello...I'm at home today due to a "cold day" - Denver didn't get the blizzard of the Midwest, but it's -13 and that warranted the school to close. YAY! I plan to stay in my jammies all day...after I run, of course...on my treadmill, of course :). Fingers crossed you get a jammie day tomorrow, too!

Stacey said...

What a great January! Yay for snow days! We NEVER get those here...

Denise said...

Gotta Run..Gotta Ride said...

Love the list. You are moving along even with the weather. Smart call on just adding the spinning in when you can. Your body will tell you from week to week.

Tara said...

awesome month! I hope you get a snow day even though I am SO jealous we never get them in California!

destination262 said...

Congrats on such a rockin' month and that is with a vacation in there. I hope my February can rock compared to my january. And your talk of daquiris made me crave one. Holy yum!

Amy said...

Awesome job on a great January! Congrats! I'm also totally addicted to the Weather Network.

Morgan said...

Teamarcia said...

Fantastic month! I am looooving Bruno M too!

Kirstie said...

Great list and AWESOME running month! Great job!

Char said...

Fingers crossed that you get your snow day. I wouldn't mind a snow day too but I know I have no chance in hell of this.

ajh said...

We have school already closed for tomorrow. I like Meg Cabot. Is that book a good one? Isn't there one before it? And if you get a laundry fairy send them my way too - STAT!

Jamie said...

What a January! You kicked off 2011 right :)

Her Name Is Rio said...

Man, January is already over! Eek!

Boris Terzic said...

Great month of January! Mine was productive just not nearly as close to yours.

Nicole said...

Work is canceled for me tomorrow! WAHOOOOOO!! I feel like i'm a 15 year old again!!!!! :) :)

Nice january.. your my running idol!

lindsay said...

jersey shore. i have never watched that. snookie is my homegirl though.

epsom salt? what do you need that for?

laundry is the one chore i can do. probably because i can passively do it all week long and by the time i actually finish all three steps (wash/dry/fold let's be real i don't iron) i have a new pile ready to be done.
