Irina being injured meant NO runs at all for her in January (I’ll tell you, its tough once you’ve become hooked on it, to rest fully like that!). After a few weeks of full rest, she used the swimming pool to do some aqua-running to help keep fitness up. More to follow on that soon!
Paul had a niggling injury to deal with, so lots of stretching, foam roller, and some strength work were utilised to get back on the road, although mileage was limited this month. I also used the pool, and planned on upping my swimming anyway with a few Triathlons in mind for this year. Paul is also making a short cycle to work on certain shifts (up a brutal hill in each direction, treating it like interval training!).
Paul’s January Running: 10.4 Miles
Paul’s January Cycling: 23.8 Miles
Paul’s January Swimming: 1 Mile
Irina’s January Running: 0! Miles
Things can only get better! 🙂
