2008’s numbers, plus a glance at 2009’s goals

December 31, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I made it well known that when this year started that I didn’t really have specific goals with anything since I started ’08 injured. So with that being said, I don’t want to analyze my year too much — I just want to put the numbers out there and let them be. I may sneak in a run tomorrow, but it will be minimal with my dog if I do. Can’t you tell I’m just ready to get this year over with?

I’ve also added my 2009 goals based on my post from a couple of weeks ago using the “10 percent” rule. What actually happens will depend a lot of how the first quarter of the year goes. If all goes well with my planned 10 miler, my running miles may be closer to 2007 totals where I fell less than 50 miles shy of 1,000 miles. For now, it’s best to just take things a month at a time and see what happens. I do know that cross training is now very important to my routine, so it’ll continue no matter what.

Total running miles – 640.2
Best running month – August, 107.4
Worst running month – April, 22.6
Average per month – 53.35
2009 goal (’08 plus 10 percent) – 704

Walking miles (Garmin only) – 290.6

Biking miles – 232.3 (March-December)
Best month – October, 49.1
Worst month – August, 8.2
Average per month (9 months) – 25.8
2009 goal (9-month average times 12 plus 10 percent) – 340

“Other” miles (mostly elliptical) – 37.8 (October-December)
December total – 24.3
Average per month (3 months) – 12.6
2009 goal (3-month average times 12 plus 10 percent) – 166

2008 combined miles – 1,200.9
Average miles per month – 100.075
Best combined miles month – August, 148.4
Worst combined miles month – January, 63.1

    Between that and your top 10 list, it looks like 2008 wasn't too shabby, injury & all!

    Happy New Year's 🙂
