And just like that, another year is gone. 2016 went out with a whimper – running wise anyway. So what did my year look like:
- Distance: 468km
- Elevation: 6,286m
- Runs: 70
Didn’t reach my goal of 500km for the year. 4 months of very low distances due to injury made sure of that. I did, however, increase my monthly average km’s from 30km in 2015 to 40-50km/mth for the months I was fit enough to run. And elevation increased from 3500m – the majority of my runs now include some hills, with a flat run being a bit of a treat instead of the norm. I only increased the number of runs I did in the year by 10, again, being laid up for nearly a third of the year with injuries didn’t help there.
For this year? A goal of 600km total distance, a treadmill so I can fit in more than one run a week in winter, and head for 10,000m elevation – that one’s definitely a stretch. Another post coming soon with goals for the year outside of these.
