    Thanks Christina, hope you had a fab time out of town! So, we probably all put on a couple of pounds over Xmas and didn't do quite as much exercise so now the challenge is on to get straight back on it for the new year!

    I've set myself a goal to hit 40 hours in the gym for January, here we go!

    1st Jan: Oh my, what a headache - no gym for me today, not a good start to the year!
    2nd Jan: 1 hour body pump and 1 hour spinning
    3rd Jan: 1 hour spinning and 1 hour circuits.

    Total for January and for 2016 so far: 4 hours.

    My primary goal for 2016 is SPEED. I will, as always, do my best to follow the schedule laid out for me by my coach each week. I want to get faster, and try to qualify for USAT Nationals. :smiley:

    Distances include cycling + walking
    March: 489.8 km (304.3 miles) = 38 hours 4 min
    April: 491.94 km (305.6 miles) = 43 hours 6 min
    May: 361.81 km (224.8 miles) = 35 hours 50 min
    June: 569.53 km (353.9 miles) = 41 hours 53 min
    July: 230.7 km (143.35 miles) = 32 hours 45 min
    Aug: 211.3 km (131.3 miles) = 28 hours 8 min
    Sep: 306.7 km (190.6 miles) = 35 hour 2 min
    Oct: 441.82 km (274.5 miles) = 47 hours 43 min
    Nov: 660.21 km (410.23 miles) = 60 hours 41 min
    Dec: 499.91 km (282.8 miles) = 54 hours 56 min



    Looking forward to an active January!

    Jan 1 - First bicycle ride of the New Year!! 38.4 km ... should be almost enough to burn off all the cinnamon rolls I made and ate. (120 min)

    Jan 2 - 52.06 km with 613 metres of climbing. Plus wind. Plus ... surprisingly chilly. My feet were quite cold when I got in. (160 min)

    Plus 0.6 km walk to get shortbread cookie making supplies. (7 min)

    Jan 3 - 32.8 km!! And that brings 8 days in a row of cycling to an end. (100 min)

    I was kind of hoping to do a flat route, and the first 20 km wasn't too bad, but then it got hilly. Oh well, I'm starting to get used to that. :grin:

    Plus 1 km walk. (12 min)

    Totals:
    Jan Cycling Outside: 123.26 km (380 min)
    Jan Cycling Inside: 0 min
    Jan Walking: 1.6 km (19 min)
    Jan Stairs: 0 flights (0 min)
    Jan Time Total: 399 min = 6 hours 39 min
    Jan Distance Total: 124.86 km = 77.6 miles

    1.5 hour walk on Nee Year's Day - on lovely trails in the snow. :) Quite picturesque.
    That's it thus far this year. More to come tomorrow. :)

    This sounds like a great challenge...especially since I am starting on the fourth. I do a lot of cross training, so this is going to be a fun group to report to!

    Jan 1: 1 hour of downhill skiing (actually a few hours...I am estimating actual skiing time)

    Hi all! I'd like to join! Have been sick for about a week but just getting back into the rhythm of things and think I can catch up:
    01/03: Downhill skiing = 2 hours
    01/07: Run = 20 minutes
    01/08: Run = 20 minutes

    Total Week 1 = 2 hours, 40 minutes (recovering from this cold/flu definitely took a toll!)
