2008 - By The Numbers

2008 was my first full year using Attackpoint training log.

Now that the year is over I can go into my log and instantly get all of my training/racing stats for the year. Pretty sweet.

Running:
497 hours
3041.48 miles

Biking:
419 hours
5399.71 miles

Strength Training:
44:45:00 hours

Classic XC Skiing:
17 hours
130.0 miles

Skate XC ski:
5 hours
42.0 miles

Backcountry XC skiing:
3:17
15.0 miles

Two things really jump out at me about these numbers. First the fact that I spent almost as much time biking this year as running! I guess it just doesn't feel that way because almost all of my biking was in the first half of the year. The second thing is that I just did not cross country ski enough this past year. Only 42 total miles of skate skiing and 130 of classic. Two years ago I probably did close to 1,000 skiing miles.

It's also interesting to me to note my total miles racing this year.

Running miles raced: 536
Biking miles raced: about 1,500

536 miles of running races is probably more than the total running miles that I had raced in my entire life before this year, but if things go as planned I will have raced over 480 miles in the first 9 weeks of 2009! If I remain healthy (knock on wood) and am able to finish the Iditarod Invitational in March I might end up approaching 1,000 miles of racing in 2009! Until 2007 I doubt that I had ever even run 1,000 miles in a year in my life let alone raced 1,000 miles.

That's all for now. Happy New Year to all.

Taking in the mileage and time running and biking is staggering. I don't keep ongoing totals but I doubt I did more than 2400 miles running and only commuting on bike a couple times a week. Man, strong training numbers. Good luck at the ididarod invitational and have a great 2009.

Yeah, congrats on the numbers--way to set the bar (way too) high for the rest of us schlubs! ;o)

Happy New Year and Happy Trails!
