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.
Classic XC Skiing:
Skate XC ski:
Backcountry XC skiing:
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.
