Goal Summary: Running Stats
Continuing my summaries from a couple weeks ago, this post covers some statistics on running throughout 2019.
I track all of my runs with a Garmin fenix 5 watch synced to Strava, but also have been logging each one to a spreadsheet as I complete them. That way I’ve got an easy dataset to work with for analyzing and charting the results.
Here’s the overall breakdown of stats for the year:
|Total Distance||615.55 miles|
|Total Duration||86 hours, 32 minutes|
|Average Distance||4.16 miles|
|Average Pace||8:26 minute/mile|
|Average HR||156 bpm|
|Total Calories||66,431 cal|
|Best Month||September (88 miles)|
|Worst Month||March (39.6 miles)|
September was my big training month for the October half marathon (August was decent too, at about 70 miles).
2019 was my best running year by a wide margin. I got the fitness up to the point where 5-6 milers are pretty easy (when pacing), and the half proved that I can go even farther with a little preparation.
I’ve got new marks I’ll be aiming for in 2020, but probably won’t have time to post about the plan until into January a bit. Next up will be the map showing the year’s running coverage.
