January done and dusted.

I can’t believe the 1st month of 2011 is already something of the past. It was a busy month which obviously helped the time to move along so quickly.

Running wise it was a very good month for me. I started it with the 80km (50miles) Odyssey Ultra and finished it with a 35.5km (22miles) long run yesterday. My total for January is 301.5km (187.3miles). I’m very happy with that.

I also got some new road shoes last week.


For those who might wonder, yes, I did do this to them the moment I got home...


On the work front I am moving to a new project at a different customer. I’ll start there on 15 Feb and I’m looking forward to a new and different challenge. When I get to my new desk on 15 Feb this will be one of the first items to “mark my new spot”. Thanks Molly!


February 2011 awaits! May it be a good month for all!

Hey, we have the same shoes, I think! You'll be replacing yours a bit sooner than I have to! :) My mileage for January is about 1/3 of yours...and still good for me. Here's to a great February!

Nice customization of the shoe - quite the cobbler you are Johann! Is that a hotspot you always accommodate?

Giorgio said...

Good mileage for January! I hope you'll maintain this average next months.
Beautiful running shoes!

Jennifer said...

Great mileage Johann, and good luck with your new duties, hope the desk is a nice one!

Marlene said...

Sounds like January was a great month! Good luck with February!

Jill said...

Excellent January and it's looking like February is going to bring you new adventures...what more could you ask for? Well, aside from trying to keep your new road shoes unscathed, perhaps. :)

Amy said...

What happened to the shoe?
Good luck in the new position at work - hope it goes as well as your running!

I cut my shoes like that where I find I have some hot spots. These shoes have kept me injury free for many years so I cut off any cosmetic parts I can feel against my feet. I don't know why they always have to change a good model shoe. I shape them back to the original.:)

Nearly 200 miles! You are hardcore, my friend.

ajh said...

Impressive amount of miles! I did wonder if you immediately "fixed" your new shoes. I started with a brand new pair of shoes today too!

Patrick Mahoney said...

How many miles do you get out of your "modified" trainers?

Adrienne said...

187 miles! Your amazing and yes I too cannot believe January is over. Crazy how times goes faster the older I get.

Those are pretty big numbers. Impressive! They'll make Comrades a breeze. (if almost 100k can ever be a breeze)
