2011 by the Numbers

It is that time of year again when we reflect on what we did, and start thinking about what is to come for the following year. 

For me 2011 was a breakthrough year, starting slowly with a few months of physical therapy and finishing with a great races at the Nation’s Triathlon (olympic) & Beach 2 Battleship (half iron distance).  I am very happy with my progress this year, especially for running and the bike,  I am really looking forward to some strong performances in 2012.

Here is a summary of the year, in numbers – since 2011 was the first year I was really tracking mileage (using trainingpeaks), I can’t compare to directly 2010.

  • 5 – number of triathlon’s I completed
  • 5 – number of PR’s overall or s/b/r individually
  • 15:22 – minutes faster for the 13.1 mile run from EagleMan in June to Beach 2 Battleship in October
  • 147,000 – number of yards I swam this year, not bad after not swimming at all in November or December (48hrs)
  • 2,300 – number of miles on the bike (143hrs)
  • 790 – number of miles running (110hrs)
  • 88,591 – number of miles flown on United this year (just short of 50,000 in 2010)
  • 53 – nights stayed within the Hilton family of hotels (~20 for other chains)
  • 268w – last bike ftp test of the year (December 19th) – started the year at 240w
  • 19:12 – fastest 5k run test of the year (December 21st), huge improvement
  • 0 – surgical procedures in 2011.  2 in 2010 (knee’s), 1 in 2009 (nasal valve reconstruction)

I will post something about my goals for 2012 next week – I have only planned as far out as Ironman Lake Placid in July.  I am really not sure what I will feel like after that.

I hope everyone has a wonderful 2012 & if you are out partying on new year’s eve – stay save.
