I am curious how much training everyone did in 2007. Since I am pretty anal about logging my mileage and time I am able to see what I have done for the year<br><br>
Total swim, bike, run<br>
Hours: 407:55 Distance: 3,846 miles<br><br>
Run<br>
Hours: 205:25 Distance: 1,170 miles<br><br>
Bike<br>
Hours: 176:16 Distance: 2,642 miles<br><br>
Swim<br>
Hours: 26:12 Distance: 33.30 miles<br><br>
The first half of 2007 I was mainly training for 2 marathons. I started triathlon the latter part of the year. I've only been swimming since June, but even so, the distance and time is pathetic which is probably why I am so slow <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
My goals for 2008 will be to add a few hundred miles to my run total and a considerable amount to my bike and swim. I would like to see a total of between 600 - 700 hours of training for the year.<br><br>

Now, let's not be hasty, its only the 29th!<br><br>
Some folks balk at looking at totals from a full year, since a lot of different cycles exist that get a little hidden. But I think it is always cool to hear what others are doing from a macro scale.<br><br>
I'll tally them up on New Years and get back to you.<br><br>
I'd say you had a good training year, from a pure volume. Don't sweat the swimming. If you only started in June, that is a great amount in the water.<br><br>

To date:<br>
Swim - 115,760yd (~66 miles) (2006 - 192400)<br>
Bike - 2307.50 (2006 - 2454.23)<br>
Run - 498.87 (2006 - 713.9)<br><br>
I'll break 500 for run <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
does not include races. 2006 is actually missing a month since I just started using training peaks at that point<br><br>
wow, I'm amazed that even with the reduction in my swim/run I was able to hold my swim times and even improve the run times. Guess that's what I pay CC for <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
350hrs in 2007 (including a really bad Q4, a mediocre summer due to work, and Chicken Pox in the Spring) - 73% of scheduled workout time<br>
472hrs in 2006 (including missing Jan 06) - 92% of schedule workouts

OK, pretty much done for the year. Might spin for a little bit later just for fun.<br><br>
Swim: 47.75 miles in 31.5 hours<br><br>
Bike: 3505 miles in 243 hours<br><br>
Run: 894 miles in 130 hours (yes I am tempted to go run another 6 to it a nice round number...)<br><br>
About 400 hours total. Not bad considering I had only 50 total hours in July, August, and September. Those were the super slackin' months for me.<br><br>

I have no idea how much I swam or how much I ran. I don't keep a log. I did reset my bike computer odo. I had 3304 on it. Not bad considering I had zero miles in July/Aug and very few in the 2 months prior, just to much pain to ride.<br><br>

I'm with Sheldon... I have no idea what I logged for the year, be it swim, bike, or run. I have the daily totals just not the desire to put them together. Just a guess to say that it was probably my biggest year running ever by quite a bit, near my biggest year cycling but maybe not over the top (I have no idea), and probably my biggest year swimming by a little.

I had an off year compared to 2006 - too many big life things happened to train consistently.<br>
I was looking at my log on saturday night and saw that I had run 1483mi in '07 as of then, so last night I ran 15 and I'll do at least 3 today to put me over 1500.<br>
Isn't it funny how milestones motivate us?

I don't keep track of this stuff very well either. I had a good spring and did OK with the duathlons and had a decent cyclocross season, it always seems too short. I guess I train about 10 hours a week, that seems like plenty to me.<br><br>
I stopped the logging in 1993, it was making me compulsive about logging junky runs to get a higher weekly total.<br><br>
I do log my trainer work, I find it helpful to see how I'm doing week over week and compared to last year. I wish I was more organized all year, but my best efforts seem to come up short, for example my nice new Garmin watch tracks all my workouts, but I don't bother to change sports so I'm out for a run at 3 mins a mile pace...

Total swim, bike, run<br>
Hours: 336:34 Distance: 3,441.44 miles<br><br>
Swim<br>
Hours: 100:29 Distance: 191.025 miles (336,205yds)<br><br>
Bike<br>
Hours: 124:55 Distance: 2,500.88 miles<br><br>
Run<br>
Hours: 111:10 Distance: 750.417 miles<br><br><br>
I should have logged a lot more on the bike and I would have if I hadn't taken all of September and most of October and December off. A little disappointed that I didn't push through and get to 3,000 miles on the bike. I kinda wish I could have made 1,000 running too, but since I only run an average of 3 days per week, I can't really complain.

This is what I did in 2007<br><br>
Swim 146 miles<br>
Bike 3,150 miles<br>
Run 1,225 miles<br><br>
I lost 2+ months training because of the two surgeries. I usually run more miles than that.

Well, I've officially thrown in the towel on 2007 (now that it's 200<img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif">. Here's what I accomplished:<br><br>
Swim - 98.8 miles in 71 hours<br>
Bike - 1,964 miles in 130 hours<br>
Run - 640 miles in 92 hours<br>
X-Train - 51 hours of elliptical, stationary bike, weights, etc<br><br>
Total hours 343<br><br>
I think for 2008 I'd like to hit at least 365 hours - one for each day.

I find this interesting:<br><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';"><b>Name Bike/Run Ratio</b></span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">Ronbo 4.6</span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">JKaiser 3.9</span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">XFlbk 3.3</span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">Bannon 3.1</span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">Janie 2.6</span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">PaulBoth 2.3</span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">4BoysMom 1.9</span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">Hobey 1.7</span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">RunningForT3 1.4</span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">LRR 0.5</span><br><span style="font-family:'Courier New';">Pro 0.4</span><br><br>
Now... I know that The Pro comes from a running background and is an accomplished marathoner and I'd certainly consider myself more of a runner than a triathlete. At the other end, I know Ronbo is swift on the bike and finds running more challenging. Can we conclude that the better bikers do more biking? Should that just be obvious? What's the optimal ratio for a triathlete?

One major problem with that list, though, is that trainer time (or stationary bike) is probably not factored in.<br><br>
It is interesting, though.

All of my cycling workouts are time and perceived effort based and running workouts are time and HR based. I don't have any rides or runs where a certain distance or speed is my goal. It's all x time at y HR zone/perceived effort warmup, then x time at y HR zone/perceived effort, followed by x time easy cooldown. Since I'm stronger on the bike than running, my numbers are going to be skewed more than another triathlete of similar ability to me that is a stronger runner than biker.

I use a standard speed for trainer workouts, just so things like spreadsheet logs don't get mad. I also round big time on commute rides. They are either fast or slow, either 32 minutes or 36 minutes.<br><br>
You want to run some numbers, look at swimming. I am just not spending enough time in the water.
