2011 Stats Review


This is a review of my training stats from 2011 which was the main events were a long distance triathlon and two marathons plus associated build up races and training.

Below is my overall totals fro the year.

Distance (Miles)
Time (Hours)
Run
946.5
151.9
Swim
54.0
45.1
Cycle
1,195.3
106.6
Walk
435.4
103.2
Cross Train
75.7
74.4

The cross training includes gym kit with distance apart from cycle and run on treadmill , e.g. row, elliptical also football (refereeing)

The cycle distance does not include spin class session but the time does include it. A rough estimated this would include about 300 miles to the cycle based on effort and time but as it is not measurable, so they have not been included in the data.

From this data I need to increase my cycling a lot more and a my swim a bit more, although my running could be reduced slightly to accommodate this.

Comparing 2011 to 2010

In 2010 I did two long distance triathlons, so the race miles may be higher, below is the comparison.

100% = Same, More is an increase, Less is a decrease.

Distance
Time
Number of Sessions
Run
123.5%
123.1%
106.7%
Swim
124.4%
144.6%
155.6%
Cycle
94.1%
108.6%
180.2%
Walk
131.3%
117.8%
119.2%
Cross Train
31.6%
81.2%
112.4%

All 5 areas I have increased the number of sessions done between the two years.

Run

Both the distance and time increased by about the same amount 23% but the distance was slightly more which also indicates the average speed was slightly higher.

Swim

The distance, time and number of sessions all increased by reasonable amount (24%, 44%, 55%). This means the average speed was slightly lower but there was a lot more sessions.

Cycle   
 
The cycle distance decreased by 6% and the time increased by 8% with the number of sessions increased by 80%. This means there was a lot more shorter sessions but also includes more spin classes in these values (apart from the distance, see above).

Walk   
  
The walk distance increased by 31%, the time by 17% and the number of sessions by 19%. This means the walks were getting quicker and more of them.

Cross Train

Distance decreased by 69%, time decreased by 19%, number of sessions increased by 12%. The decreases are likely caused by the reduced refereeing and referee fitness training this year.
