January recap

leave a comment »

First month of 2010 is done with. January has been very warm and humid. Like December, I found ways to sneak in a run everyday, while staying relatively injury free. I took the mileage down a notch from December to remain healthy.

Didn’t run a race this month but that’s okay. I consider it an extended recovery period after the November marathon. I’m happy to get out there everyday, training. Also I’m eating and sleeping well. So it’s a good month. There is not much more to ask for.

On the non running side, I went to three weddings (Oat, Oa, Kaolad) this month. A lot more to come this year. They are good opportunities to see old friends whom I wouldn’t get to see otherwise.

Talk about inspiration, Federer won today at the Australian Open. Congrats to him on his 16th grand slam–first as a father. After a heart wrenching loss to Nadal a year ago at this tournament, he has now won 3 of the last 4 grand slams. He reached 18 of the last 19 grand slam finals. His consistency is absolutely amazing.
