For the most part, I've kept up with my goals. I have done all of my STS Workouts - and I'm starting week #7 of that tomorrow. I'll have a more specific update after I finish week 8, which will be the end of mesocycle 1.

For running, I was faster than in 2009, but not by much. I need to work on thinking about what my goals should be for this year. I've been talking to Davida about running, and she is encouraging me to increase my mileage. I've purchased Run Less, Run Faster at her recommendation and I'm eager to give it a read to see what I can find out about running less and running faster (both sound good to me!).

This has been a brutal, rough winter for running. It's been hard to get my group out and motivated when quite frankly we can't find anywhere to run. We've been sticking to Loch Raven for weeks now, but there has been a lot of treadmill work, and even the weekday runs that I do from my running store have been forced into a gated community that is essentially running in a circle and not much better than a track. Combine that with snow, wind and ice... It's just been a difficult winter here in Maryland. Since my last 23 miler on the NCR Trail on December 12, we have only had ONE runnable day on the trail (January 30, the weekend before the blizzards). Miserable.

I purchased a new Yoga video, Rodney Yee's Yoga for Beginners and I'm eager to give it a try. Hopefully this week. Todd starts his first open water scuba class for DiveCon this week, so I'll have a free night to give it a shot.

Great job keeping up with your goals!

I really want to hear what you think about that book.
