What a great month January 2016 was. Training was often quite hard due to multiple heatwaves moving through Cape Town with morning (5:00 am) temperatures of 20°C and higher.
My January 2016 training plan: Run at least one 30+ km run per week, add some pace sessions and a few bike rides (to prepare for the Cape Argus Cape Town Cycletour in March).
The outcome of January 2016:
328.9 km covered during 14 training sessions (runs) + 2 races (30 km and 42.2 km)
Average distance per week 72.5 km
2 bike sessions
6 gym sessions

Feeling excellent, working hard to stay healthy and keep the long distance training going and flowing. I am varying the long (30+ km) runs like HR oriented slow runs, Comrades pace run, long intervalls. All systems at 100%.
