Final Mileage Report:
Bike miles: ??? (2300+)
Run miles: ??? (1000+)
Turns out Strava does not tell you how much you rode and ran in a year. It will only tell you your mileage in the year your are in and the grand total. This year, I shall have to remember to check my final report before the calendar year ends. Nevertheless, the estimates I placed up there are close to accurate. I crossed the 1000 milestone sometime in early December and I had clocked 2300 miles or so before the winter months shut me down. These come shockingly close to my stated goals for the year. Go me!
Status on Previous Year's Goals
- Finish Ironman Texas in less than 12 hours
- Finish the Woodlands Marathon in under 3 hours
- Learn to enjoy bike riding
I never thought this day would come, but I actually do enjoy it now. I'm not as slow as I once was, and have started getting comfortable on the saddle. Actually, I wish I could do more riding than the weather currently permits, since my bike fitness has gone down the drain.
- Actually get some good race pictures
Well... Maybe next year. Seriously spectators, I can't take the pictures by myself. This one isn't bad though, so It's not a total loss.
Then again, there are plenty that look like this
Nevertheless, let us not forget the many accomplishments I've accrued over the year. I finished my first Ironman, set new records for all of the distances I raced in, and even won a local half Ironman! So yeah, not a bad year.
Goals for This Year
- Gain the endurance to last throughout an entire Ironman
- That's it
Well, a long year stands ahead of me. I hope I'm ready for it!
