2010 Miles

Here is my mileage (and swim yardage - please don't think I swam 9,000 miles ~ I wish!)  recap for 2010. Not all that exciting, but you can definitely see the peaks and valleys in my training. I really don't know how I completed my first half marathon in Indianapolis with that low of mileage, but I think part of the problem was that I didn't successfully track my completed workouts until later in the year. On the other hand, if this is accurate, I can expect to finish the Indy Half Marathon in less than 2:12 this year! HAHAHA! That makes me want to get on the treadmill right now!

Yep, this is ME while I wait to start the Indy Mini 500
my first half marathon in FREEZING May weather
Now, I know I swam before June of 2010. I was registered for Sullivan last year when I decided   chickened out hours before the race because I didn't want to face the gale force winds, rain and sleet on my new Dolce bike. Speaking of which - Honestly, I probably didn't bike much before May last year because while I had a brand new shiny red bike, I did not have a trainer. (Last fall, however, I rectified that situation.)

Once August hit though, I started tracking my mileage...and again, that doesn't mean it was anything impressive. I ran and ran and ran in preparation for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon, but once I finished that race, I took it easy again as I pushed into Body Flow training and strengthening my IT Band.

So, what does this tell me? That I am a horrible data keeper!!! But I will do better this year. I promise to keep accurate workout records and let you all know how I am doing.

  1. You are doing great!! What should we reward ourselves with for reaching 1000 miles in less than a year??? We'll easily make that one!
