It took a bit of extra time to get all my numbers lined up this year; normally I try and do it every three months or so, but didn’t get around to it this time.

My stats for previous years can be seen here: 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Cycling

My riding through the year was pretty consistent, although at slightly less than the year before. I didn’t spend much time on the turbo over winter, which meant I missed out on a fair bit of structure. It was also my lowest-climbing year, with only one trip through the Gorges and a lot more Kurnell rides.

Running

For the first half of the year, my running was great – I was sorta-kinda following along with a half marathon training plan and was getting in about 50km a week with an 18km longest run. However, in about mid June I picked up a cold, a slight injury and full time employment in quick succession. I still don’t enjoy running like I do riding, so it was first to get the axe and I cut down to around 10-15km a week when I was better. Hopefully I’ll get better at managing my time this year and get some longer runs going.

Pilates

Pilates has just moved to a Wednesday so I’m trying to work out if I should run down (Wednesday is normally a run), or move things around somehow and ride as normal.

Overall

Not a bad year, not a great one. Plenty to work on once I get some of my fitness back after pretty much 3 weeks on my ass eating over Christmas!
  1. From April, my bike was on a boat for the previous months
  2. Also from April, when I started running.
