I had three goals for 2012 which were revised after injuring my knees.
Goal #1 - Go sub-6 at Door County Half Iron July 22nd.
Changed to take in enough nutrition to not visit the med tent. Success though I did throw up afterward. Grade = A.
Goal #2 - Go sub 1:45 at the RnR half marathon St. Louis October 21st.
- This one is a real stretch considering my PR is 1:55 and some change.
Changed to "don't get injured trying to be faster. Success, set a 5 minute PR without injury! Grade = A.
Goal #3 - Lose 10 pounds by May 20th (Carlyle Oly)
Total failure! I weighed the same on race day as I did January 1st. Grade = F.
That puts me at a D for the year (if I did my math right it's 67%) though I'm tempted to bump that to a C since I've traveled 10 weeks in a row and made it through Christmas and Thanksgiving only gaining two pounds and I weigh a couple pounds less than last year at this time.
I also managed a 5 minute PR at a Sprint tri, did an Olympic tri a week later and did a Sprint tri in Boston. I also set a distance PR by three miles at Patrick's 12 hour run.
Volume wise I was down from 2011 for swimming and biking and slightly up for running.
Swim = 77,000 yards in 35 hours and 16 minutes
Bike = 2,500 miles in 167 hours
Run = 707 miles in 121 hours and 40 minutes
Swim = 52,000 yards in 18 hours and 6 minutes (not as much volume, but way faster)
Bike = 1943 miles in 118 hours and 24 minutes
Run = 832 miles in 140 hours and 43 minutes
Happy New Year!
