HAPPY NEW YEARS and may the next decade be a great one for you and your family. Since 2009 was the year I embarked on this crazy thing called running then I better follow all the other fantastic runner bloggers and post a 2009 stat recap. When I first started running I was using my Nike+. Between that log, and when I began logging my miles on the website Runningahead.com here is what I have:
Jan = 53.3
Feb = 52.11
Mar = 50.35
Apr = 57.32
May = 55.35
Jun = 65.8
Jul = 74.7
Aug = 98.1
Sep = 92.8
Oct = 95.1
Nov = 108.4
Dec = 109.7
913.03 Total 2009
My race times over the year (thank you Mrs.CJ for posting this stat on your blog http://mrscj.blogspot.com/)saw some improvement, but I hope with a year of running under my belt 2010 really kicks butt.
My 5k time went from 28:28 in May of 2009 to 25:41 in November of 2009. I only did two other distances 5 miler and the half marathon. My half time was an instant PR of 2:08. I move on towards 2010 hoping that the hard work I plan on putting into my training will result in several minutes taken off of both my 5k and half marathon. Oh and of course finish my first full marathon in Chicago.
As for my much more obsessive better half, Chris. 2009 brought him the following stats:
2009 Running - Total Miles: 2417,
Days Run 275,
Percentage 72.5 %,
Biggest Running Streak 55 days,
Number of runs 299.
Jan - Jun = 944 miles,
Jul - Dec = 1473,
He ran 19 miles in the first 7 days of 2009,
He ran 70 miles in the last 7 days of 2009,
His 5k time went from 22:25 to 19:11,
His 10k went from 42:40 to 40:12 (both 2009),
His Half Marathon was 1:37 to 1:27,
His first Marathon was 3:38 to 3:08 (both 2009).
Something big is happening in 2010...
Thank you everyone for following along on our journey. I plan on documenting the roller coaster ride of 2010, hope you stick around for the ride.
Stevi & Chris
