Either your runs were very short (and slow), or you've missed a digit out of that total Wink Very Happy


I don't like to run more than 900m at a time, legs tend to get tired...

(oops fixed it!)

Bit of a weird year for me.

2nd lowest total since 2013 when i started this tri/running lark.

1,751km across 132 runs (some of them may be separate w/u or c/d if i was doing a session for example) - 172hrs and in excess of 32k elevation

Within that i also ran 2 x 100 mile races. So 20% of my yearly mileage was made up from two runs!!!

13 weeks lost to injury with zero running with the subsequent knock-on effect of having to slowly get back into things plus the arrival of our 2nd child.

So all in all, not a terrible year. Really proud of my 2 x big races, but failed to achieve anything outside of those two events; athletically speaking!!

Started to piece things together again in December with 40km, 60km and 65km pre Christmas. Including my two longest runs since January packed into that final week - a 26km/1,000m+ trail run and a 26.5km road commute.

Only got out once over the Christmas break for a new little challenge my friends and i set. This is the best VK we came up with in temrs of being off road, quiet, steep and easy to access: https://www.strava.com/activities/2040935196/overview


Will try to ease back in this week and then start to dial up the mileage again. using the VK as a monthly benchmark if i can convince myself to suffer through that again!!

I saw that, that is a crazy session, I ran once up the Orcombe zig-zags whilst I was down your way, and that was enough for me!

End of year totals for me were pretty low compared to previous years:

Bike 116 hours (2,228 miles)
Run 122 hours (1,072 miles)

Don't track swimming anymore!

Plan is to bump this up for 2019, hoping for 5,000 miles on the bike and 1,500 running. My longest ride last year was only 47 miles! That needs to change...

Every year is different and you can get hung up on annual stats.
I let Strava/VeloViewer take care of that for me when they email me to let me know itís the end of the year.

Last year was a bit of a step change for me in terms of volume. Most noticeably swim and bike, but even on the run I did more, despite the previous two years featuring a spring marathon where I mainly focused on the running for month.

The green line in each is 2018 (pics are swim, then bike, then run)


In terms of total numbers, according to strava I did:
Swim - 90hrs15 for 330,003m
Bike - 250hrs03 for 7,300.1km
Run - 152hrs18 for 1,936.1km

2018 was a big step up for me too

Overall 540 hours training, 47% up on 2017

Running:
1,267km @ 5:07/km and 145bpm - my heart rate was the same as 2017, however, my average pace was 30sec/km faster

Cycling
10,131km @ 27.3kph, 179w and 133bpm - my speed was marginally faster then 2017 and power 1w lower, however my average HR was 12bpm less

Swimming
159km @ 2:02/100m - here it all went wrong, I swam less than 2017 and I swam slower, admittedly there was a lot me open water swimming with no wetsuit, which probably reduced my pace, but overall swimming was disappointing.

What is really interesting is that my improved fitness is translating into faster running at a similar intensity, but my cycling is at the same pace, with lower intensity.

In 2018 I had a coach, and this profile is great for Ironman performance, ie cycle fast enough while saving energy for the run

However, in 2019 I will be self coaching, should I now try to improve both bike and run speed, while maintaining the same HR

Woman (prob late 20s) jumps into lane at lunchtime whilst I'm doing a 16x100 main set. I swear, in the time I did that mile, she must have covered max 400m; taking huge rest periods, mixture of full-stroke and drills. She obviously identifies as a Triaflete, as she was wearing a BTF cap.

I just wanted to tell her it's not rocket-science...just swim ffs!

I'd not considered this, but you could be right.

Fairly steady week for me.

Swim - ~4.5k with 3 swims - had a shoulder problem off and on for a few years and it's on at the moment so a bit sore, not helped by slumping at a desk all day.

Bike - ~40 miles - got a bonus bike on Thursday afternoon but wasn't cycling this weekend because of a running race

Run - ~40k - did 3k on the track on Tuesday which felt quite good, then on Friday had a session with 2*10 minutes about 4:10k pace, which I'd been loosely aiming for on a half but it was hard work. Managed it but was walking after the second one for a short while.

But had a local flat half at York today, forecast was strong wind, although coming more across than a block headwind\tailwind.

Wasn't feeling great after developing a bit of a cough overnight, but managed 1:27:57. Wind probably added 60+ seconds. It didn't feel too bad. Was a bit nervous about lifting the pace.

Definitely feel like I'm fighting something now though, hopefully I can hold it off with a few easy days.

Still, bit of progress and enjoying the running.

Jeff

Great running, there, JeffB - that's what I'm aiming for in March Very Happy

Nice week for me, helped with the acquisition of some power pedals and new summer road bike Twisted Evil

Swim - One 1.2k. Drills. Paltry - must get three per week in.

Bike - ACE Very Happy 90 minutes 45km on Wednesday, outdoors, on the TT bike (full kit) testing the pedals whilst waiting for the roadie to be set up, but also recce'ing the Wilmslow Tri Course (HINT: It is not great)
3.5hr 84km ride on Friday with some decent hills and amazing downhills. This was an easy group ride, disrupted by a few mechanicals (not mine)
3.75hr 106km group ride. That headwind was nice Evil or Very Mad Lots of time on the front kept the NP nice and high Smile

Run - 1 easy 30 minutes. 1 30 minutes, with the middle 3km at 4:14/km. One 5 miler.

Feeling great today, bit of an easier week this one, with a focus on swimming.

Depending on how big the graze is, I have used hydrocolloid dressings; they are brilliant. Swimming the next day! They speed-up the healing process too.
