End-of-the-Year Totals 2015

For the month of December, I biked 104.39 miles in 19 days. I also ran 8 times for 22.99 miles.

For 2015, I biked 1313.36 miles over 212 days. On average, I biked 16.8 days a month. The months when I rode the most days were January, October, and August, with 23 days each. The month I rode the most miles was August, with 169.48 miles.

I didn’t do many organized rides this year. I rode the Vasa Ride, the Tour de Cookie, the Tour de DCPL, and the Great Pumpkin Ride. I didn’t do any of rides that I had set out in my goals.

I ran 198.05 miles in 78 days this year, which included five 5K races: the Mother’s Day 5K, the Pride 5K, the PGRC Women’s Distance Festival, the Great Pumpkin Run, and the Trot for Hunger.

I’ve been more socially active off the bike than on. I continue to commute on the bike, and I continue to run because I enjoy it. I’ve signed up for Freezing Saddles again this year, just for the hell of it.

I haven’t been blogging much, more for lack of desire than lack of content. My average life span for a blog (of which this one is my fourth, by the way) is about 5 years, so I think this one has run its course. I’ll check in again when the spirit moves me, but I’ll be mostly around elsewhere.

Best wishes to you all in 2016. Peace.

November 2015 Stats

For the month of November, I biked 72.78 miles in 18 days. I also ran 11 times for 31.86 miles, which included two 5K races.

Next up, the year and blog in review.

September 2015 Stats

For the month of September, I biked 124.47 miles in 19 days. I also ran 3 times for 5.41 miles.

I was going to do a bike ride this month, but I got sick. I had two rides scheduled for October, but one was cancelled. Let’s hope I can do the other one.

July 2015 Stats

For the month of July, I biked 94.01 miles in 17 days. I also ran 9 times for 19.43 miles.

Finally got my butt in gear to ride to work a couple of times this month. I hope to get more bike miles in to get ready for some upcoming rides in the fall.

I’ve signed up for a 5K in August, which may be a mistake. I’m debating whether I should sign up for a 10K in October. I imagine the weather will be nicer in September than the hot and stickiness that’s prevalent now, which could translate into more motivation to run then, but I may not be ready to add more mileage to my schedule. I’m not sure.

In any case, I’m enjoying the summer while it lasts.

June 2015 Stats

For the month of June, I biked 21.31 miles in 3 days. I also ran 8 times for 22.79 miles, which included the Pride 5K.

Wow– that’s the first time I’ve ever run more than I’ve biked in a given month. I took the month off from work, which meant my commuting miles went out the window, and I didn’t do much riding beyond that.

I’m back to work in July.
