I’m getting ready for NYE! First a yoga class this afternoon, then some fun! But I wanted to take a moment and look back on 2010 from a running and statistics perspective. While I’ve kept running logs before, this is the first year it’s online and easy to crunch the numbers! (I’m super-excited for the Garmin 305 I just purchased, to help make 2011 even more data-driven what a geek I am).
Anyway, here’s some stats about 2010:
According to my Nike+ (please note that I’m not super-strict about keeping it calibrated. I also don’t wear it all the time – I purchased in April and wear 90% of the time):
- 107 workouts
- 467 miles run; average pace of 11:16 min/mile.
- 87:13 hours run.
According to my Athlinks profile – a site that stores your race data:
- 12 Races Run:
- 1 10K
- 1 15K
- 2 5Ks
- 3 8Ks
- 5 Half Marathons – apparently I like distance
- Average pace of all races –> 11:03 min/mile
- First 8K of the season’s time: 59:11 (pace: 11:54)
- Third 8K of the seasons’s time: 54:56 (pace: 11:03)
- First Half Marathon time: 2:34:25 (pace: 11:47)
- Fifth Half Marathon time: 2:21:29 (pace: 10:48)
- I also beat a 6 year old PR for my 5K time. In 2004, I ran my first 5K in 31:13. I haven’t beat that pace until this October when I ran the Bucktown 5K in 30:04.
Looking through all these numbers, I still have some older PRs in certain distances:
- 10K – 2005
- 8K – 2006
- Marathon – (one and only, so far!) – 2006
I’ve been thinking about my goals for this year, and will consider whether I want to work on improving those times. Well, I already know I’d like to improve upon my Chicago Marathon 2006 5:35 time, but not sure whether the 8 & 10K times are as important to me…
Happy New Year to all!
