A look at January

About a month ago, I posted some pretty loft New Year's Resolutions.  Instead of forgetting about them, I'm trying to keep myself accountable for my actions this year.  How did I do?

*Ran 73.11 miles. That is 10 miles short of being able to complete my goal of 1000 miles in 2011.  I missed a couple of runs because of the terrible cold I had.  Hopefully I'll be able to make them up... maybe this summer when there is a little more flexibility in my schedule?

* Pilates.  Yes, went, but only 3 out of 5 possible times.  The other two... one was the terrible cold and the second was Son's soccer game.  Darn him for playing after school sports!  More like darn the school for scheduling games on Monday afternoons!

*Other forms of cross training.  Swam twice.  I had great plans for spin class, but, that just didn't make it to happening.  Sadly, instead of spinning I was sick (yes, we know already!!) and went to a couple of niece/nephew birthday dinners.  OK, I wasn't too sad about the birthday dinners because who doesn't like a party, but I still missed my intended spin.

How to fix my plan for February? 

* Don't get sick.  Seriously, this seemed to be my biggest downfall of the month.  Thankfully I don't get sick too often.  Knock on wood.

* Pilates is only offered at one time a week that I can attend.  The other is at 9:45am on Tuesdays.  There isn't really a lot of flexiblity in school sports schedules either.  I think there may only be one other Monday game though, so, it will probably work out OK.

* Spin.  I just have to quit making excuses and go do it.  I enjoy it once I get there, but am slightly intimidated to go.  Those people all just look so, um, fit.  And like they live their lives on spin bikes.  I know this is not true, but these are the times I still have all of my jr high insecurities creep back. 

How did January go for you?  Hopefully your goals are all getting accomplished!
