2011 Wrap Up

It always takes me a little while to sit down and think about my running and general fitness from the previous year.  I would say that is past year was a year  of change in my overall physical fitness.  After getting my Spin Certification, I ended up doing a whole lot more time on the bike than in my running shoes and I had a hard time finding a good balance.  All in all, not a bad year but I ended the year running quite a bit less than normal.  Here are the final numbers and some various “stats” that I like to keep.


Running Goal:  2011 Miles

Running Actual:  1571 Miles

Total # of Runs:  359

Ave Distance Per Run:  4.38 Miles
