Maybe the decision to track my weekly, monthly, yearly mileage wasn't the best - the numbers are much more exciting when you wait until the end of the year, add them all up and SURPRISE - you've accomplished something. Right now it's a little depressing. We are on the 2nd week in January and my mileage is basically a marathon - .1 miles short of one actually. So, to date I have only run the amount that I did in one day twice last year - that hurts a little. So, to help myself feel better on a separate spreadsheet I am tracking my biking mileage, spinning, yoga, weights, swimming hours as well as my # of crunches. This makes my overall look a little better - it equals about 12 hours of exercise over 15 days, better, but still not where I want to be. However, if you take into consideration that I did nothing for 5 of those days because of family commitments and/or sickness it sounds a skosh better. This week for example I have worked out at least one hour each day (except for Sunday with my super fast 5K race time of 24:37 - lol). I'm hoping this is the kind of week I needed to get me back into the swing of things. Next week will test me though with a trip out of town. I hope to persevere!
Regarding biking - I'm back at it - I've ridden to/from work every day this week. The weather has been pretty great for it and the roads are finally clear. :-)
