January 2012 in the Rearview Mirror

January ended up being a pretty good month all things considered, and I'm looking forward to the coming month with great anticipation.

Here is what the month looked like...

Activity   Time Total   Distance Total (in miles)
Running 15:40:21 101.72
Walking 7:50:09 30.38
Cycling 0:42:20 10.69
Swimming 0:20:09 0.50
Elliptical 3:50:00 18.48
Overall Total 28:22:59 161.77

This month's mileage is the most I've logged since I started running last summer, so that is a major accomplishment considering that I was somewhat hobbled and in pain at the beginning of this month.

I'll be counting this accomplishment as my contribution to Operation Hardcore Fit as well, since I certainly would not have thought that I could pull off that type of distance earlier in the month.

I'm also a part of the 100x Challenge, and as a consequence of this month's running mileage I met the goal for January which was 100k (62.13 miles) !!    Now we move on to the next month's challenge, which I believe is going to be 100 push-ups a week.

Happy Running Everyone !!!


  1. you're a BEAST, Mike......now go and have a good taper to be ready for Cowtown!

  2. Great month, Michael! 100 running miles is a great way to start the year.

  3. Great month! That 100x challenge sounds like fun!

  4. Fantastic month! 2012 is off to a great start for you. :)

  5. I am failing horribly at OHF but I am interested in trying the 100 challenge. and great miles thus far :) you should be proud of yourself

  6. You had a great month, keep up the great work and 100 pushups for February will be a piece of cake! :)

    1. Yes, it shouldn't be only hard. Getting in 400 pushups (100 per week) will only require 14 a day, so it should be fairly straight-forward as long as I do a little each day.

    2. Oops...meant to say it shouldn't be THAT hard :-)
