Here are some of the statistics from my year of training in 2013:
Total time trained: 400 hours
Running: 184 hours (2032km)
Time on the bike: 101 hours (2413km)
Roller skiing: 36 hours (544km)
Weight training: 64 hours
marathons completed: 1
1/2 marathons completed: 1
hardest week: 13 h 43 min
easiest: 2 h 54 min
According to my training analyzer (not the most accurate), I burned 278 455 kilocalories (equal to 506 Big Macs). So I know where I should eat dinner tonight ...and how many burgers.
The running distance seems to be increasing constantly- 2032 km in 2013, 1830 in 2012 and 1068 km in 2011. Not a bad thing. However, there were couple of not so priceless moments, but here they are:
- did not run/ski/bike any personal bests
- Total time trained 117 hours less than in 2012
- 61 hours on skies in 2011, 31 h in 2012 and only one hour in 2013. Sad, but true!
BTW! I don't have such thing as a training plan. I only have a plan when prepare for a very important race. I do not train when I just do not want and I do sports I like to do best, but I never say no to something I have never done before.
It was not a busy year, but I enjoyed every second of it. Looking back I didn't race much, so I hope I will race more often this year ...or next. This year my focus will be a full marathon in the spring. Very much looking forward to it!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned!
