So even though I have been extremely busy I am going to make a commitment to updating once a week.
2012 was a very good year. I am on daily mile and recently received an email with my training summary. Not too bad if I do say so myself.
I covered 2,433 miles in running and biking. This was an average of 46 miles per week. I logged 340 miles and burned 70 miles.
So I decided to review my Gamin stats. It took me a minute to remember how to navigate, but I figured it out.
I had 165 Activities for running with a total distance of 726.27 miles in 123:29 hours/mins. My average speed was 5.9 mph and burned 117,786 calories.
For Cycling I had 182 activities and went 1,729.31 miles in 117:52 hours/mins. My average speed was 14.7 mph and I burned 128,236 calories.
I did spend 4 hours doing 12 "other" activities and burned 1,021 calories. There was also 5 activities that I did for a total of 2:39 hours/mins. I only burned 194 calories. Not sure what they were but it counts.
In looking back I accomplished a great deal. I have kept myself fairly healthy and have really improved my speed on my feet.
I obtained 3 new personal bests. My 5k, 10k and half marathon, in that order.
My 5k is 24:25 at Sadies race on May 12th, my 10k is 53:42 at Columbia Turkey Chase on Nov 18th and my Half is 1:56:35 at Annapolis Half Marathon on Dec 1st.
I have not done a full marathon since the Marine Corp in 2010. I do plan on doing another one, maybe this is the year. Maybe not. We shall see. I am wanting to get into duathlons more this year, but I have a lot of events on my bucket list. Speaking of the bucket list, I did a Spartan race this past year. Don't plan on doing anything like that again. One and definitely done with that. There are many different obstacle or themed events out there and I am just not interested in doing anything like that again.
Getting back to duathlons, this year I plan on doing 2 events that I have done before, The Virginia Duathlon and the Maryland Olympic Duathon. I am going to hope to do both duathlons in Hagerstown but we shall see.
One thing that I have come to realize is that I need to do more stretching and work on my core. I plan to do that. I am also going to give the 100 push ups a try.
I am going to be giving a couple of different things a try this first quarter, training apps, work out routines etc. I will keep you posted.
well thanks for reading. I will update more later.
