This Sunday my “2011 season” is over! From Monday and the next couple of months I will move slowly into a more winter oriented training schedule that entails a lot of core work and a lot of swimming with the occasional run/bike ride thrown in, in order to keep me sane.
With that in mind I had a look at my training log for the last 10 months. I have kept track of most of my training with my trustworthy Garmin 305 and some of the more interesting numbers are:
All in all I have done 200 training sessions, give or take a few that have been without the Garmin.
From January to April I trained for the Rutgers Half marathon and I did 17 training sessions pr month, almost of of this was running.
From May to July I trained to the New Jersey State Triathlon and I upped my training to 25 sessions pr month (22 in July due to some tapering)
In August I started training for Philly marathon and did 29 sessions. Most of these were running sessions, which in turn immediately gave me injury problems so I had to cut down to 21 sessions in September. October has 8 sessions so far (only counting until October 9th).
As I added bike rides the time spent training went from 14 hours to around 24-27 hours in May and June and the kilometers went up from 200-250k to 400-485k.
All in all I am pretty happy with my year.
So – what has all this training meant for my stats.
5k fastest time: 25 min
10k fastest time: 48 min
