January 2011 Knitting Projects

Trying something new this month and making a collage using Picnik of all the projects I finished this month.  The names are the classes in the HPKCHC for which they were turned in.

Left to right: preemie hat, Brattleboro hat, Clockwork scarf, and Hedera socks.  All knit in Sunshine Yarns.  My goal this year is to knit from my stash rather than buying yarn.  Also, my first pair of socks done for the year (aiming for 9 total).

Training - 2010 Recap and 2011 Preview

My running season did not go as well as hoped last year.  I suffered my second tibial fracture ever - this time in the other leg - and it took quite awhile to heal.  Couple that with a few lung infections, and I'll be glad to not have a repeat of 2010 any time soon!!  Despite that, here are my training totals for the entire year:
  • Bike: 647.41 miles
  • Run: 290.86 miles
  • Swim: 24,100 meters
I'm especially proud that I volunteered a total of 19 hours and 15 minutes at running and triathlon events throughout the year! 

Looking forward to 2011, I'd like to train more in each sport than I did in 2010.  I don't think I'm going to tackle another marathon for awhile.  I'd like to take the time to get healthy and focus on shorter distances.  I'm hoping to go sub 3 hours in a half marathon and maybe beat my PR of 2:39.
