188 miles and 250th post (giveaway)

Total miles for February 188 (down from 208 last month). Break down in miles:

Run: 116 (down from 142 in January)
Bike: 68 (up from 64 in January)
Swim: 3 (up form 2 in January)
Walk: 2 (up from 0 in January)

I am happy with the breakdown. I really over did it in January. I am comfortable with the mileage (yeah, you don't sound convinced, huh?) but need to get it more focused on the swimming and cycling and work on interval training. I want to go into the sprint Tri feeling confident and strong.

Treadmill news: I survived 7.5 miles on Milles this morning. It is true that I stopped running after 4, did P90X: Ab Ripper X and then got back on for 3.5 miles; but it counts, right? Longest time I ever spent with Milles. I was able to sip water without falling but I still got bored. The last 3.5 I did intervals which did make it go by quicker. So.... it is looking like Milles is making a claim in my training program.

And this is my 250th post... I cannot believe some of you have followed me through 250 posts... and guess what? Really.. guess! Okay, give up? I am giving away an entry into a race of your choice (under $50). REALLY!

So what do you need to do? As a follower: NOTHING - besides leave a comment letting me know you want in by telling me which race you want to register for that you haven't yet done so (this is important as you cannot receive a refund from a race you already registered for). And if you decide to blog, Facebook, twitter or anything else, leave me a comment and let me know and I will give you extra entries.

And if you aren't a follower... what are you waiting for? Follow me, ALREADY! And enter to win!

I will select the winner by using random.org on March 8th.

OH wow ... There's a Sept 17.75K that could be made to fit my schedule, or an Oct 10K that would be tempting. I'm, obviously looking pretty far out as far as timing is concerned. Obviously. Oh and thanks for the comment - glad to entertain.

$50.00 could enter you almost any race here in Cape Town. I'm running a 10km race on Saturday and I think that will cost $5.00. If I win spend it on yourself, go out and run a 10km ASAP...

Pam said...

Very, very cool! I'm planning on doing two HMs in April, and I would be more than happy if you would pay for one of them! lol Not that I deserve ir or anything considering I've already won an iPod from you... But still! :)
