Slow down.

Tired Legs/Arms not Lungs

More upper cuts, less pats on the back.

Just get it done.

Are these from strava ? How do you find your totals?

Or from Garmin Connect activity stats...

Swim: 300.67km, only 7km less than 2016. Very pleased that I managed to keep up the consistency that I gained while waiting for the stressie to heal

Bike: 5395.2km, up, stressie in 2016

Run: 2262.4km, up, stressie in 2016

Hope to keep this about the same for next year. Did a few races and am pleased overall with how they went :-)

Swim 500km (well it will be after I swim this arvo) 

Bike 9,015km

Run 678, haven't run for a few months with dodgy knees. Gotta get that shit sorted!

Biggest swim year for a long time (maybe ever), biggest bike year since 2009 when I did 12,000km, run is down a bit for obvious reasons but I've never done big run mileage anyway.

From strava

swim - 164 swims - 328km - and I still suck at it.

bike - 161 rides, 5016km

run - 137 runs - 760km 

im not sure of the value of contemplating these metrics, as I consider the following more important:

When the alarm goes off -

for swimming -

50%, groan time to swim if I don't want to be last out of the swim,

45% -  time to swim,

5% - the lure of the doona wins

for bike -

85%  yeah baby - lets go,!!

10% Raining = WT 😢

5% - meh, snooze.

for run -

90% how can I get out of this, is that a niggle, yeah, better take it easy, you're not getting any younger,  I can always run tomorrow.  Get out of bed you lazy git !!!  Strangely by the time I actually start running I really enjoy it , but the internal argument is HUGE 

10% I looze  and snooze

No where near as much as most but its by far the most active year of my life! 

Don't worry about what others are doing mate. I always know there's a bloke in the Victorian High Country who is doing double, probably triple what I do.... But I use that as motivation. I don't let it get me down. I used to, but wisdom has finally arrived with age. 👍👍😎

swim: 51 times for 73 km, as you can see not a big swimmer

Bike: 161 times for 6045 km

run 128 times for 1105 km (twice 2016)

this is up on 2015 (year of injury), 2016 (year of recovery)

at 50 years old, the biggest thing is that i can still do the sport!

ok, cool.   Second dumb question........ how do you get the totals?  Somewhere obvious on the ap?  I'm a dill. 

 

Nevermind, I found it. 

But I'm not sharing.   My excuse is I do a lot of indoor training, which doesn't rack up kms...........

Have a A4 exercise book.  Ruled in section for each discipline plus other exercise.  Fill it in with time and distance for each sport.  

I use a Suunto Watch for certain sessions just for HR measure and a timex stop watch (the sleek model has interval mode which is good).  Map my run is what I use for mapping routes and distances.  Call it old school but never have worry too much about tech failure

Swim:  don't know

I did log total time for each in a XLS in the 30wks leading up to IM Wales, all done with an old school IM Timex watch.  Have no idea about distances though.

I’d be keen to see what everyone’s Ironman times are as on the distances you guys are throwing out you should be doing times with a 9:xx in front of them unless your in the older ages groups.

Who has the time to fit it all in.

40-44 Male.

I went 11:47 on debut at IMAus, definitely room for improvement.

Haha, I'm even 'older school' than that and write my times and distances down hard copy in a journal.  These are also timed on a Timex watch but I have a fair idea of distances after doing years of training with mates who won't go anywhere without their Garmin's 'dinging' at every K.

Distance wise, as I just wrote in the goals thread, my aim was to Swim - 197.6km (done),  Run - 2,195km (done), and Ride - 9,360km (dismal fail as I only achieved a ride of 20km in anger).  I do have all of the distances written down but don't currently have time to add them all up.  Gotta love doing things manually eh!  :thumbsup:.

That's how I know as well but Ive gotten pretty good at estimating distance/pace.

Run and swim is always time based but a few runs are either measured course or done on treadmill, so then I know,

Where you live, you should just ride bobbin head daily and the run down and back to mt colah. I miss doing both of those things. 

Mind you I love getting to work now in 9minutes compared to hour 15 in Sydney. 

Thats how I find the time. Next to no travel for work.

2013 Cairns - 11:05 and 2016 IMOZ - 10:42

Both of these were in 35-39 AG, now i’m in 40-44. I do a lot of riding indoors as its more time efficient, and I utilise mid-week lunch times for swim and/or gym sessions.

But yes, don’t presently have time for full IM’s - half’s and OD only. For my abilities a sub 10 time would take a hell of a lot more training which just isn’t possible with work and young kids.

Run - 688km, mainly trail and parkrun

Bike -  1174 :whistling: , mainly MTB

Swim - 169k, about normal for me.

Still happy I'm in fair nick with no injuries.

Am still amazed by some of the stats. Can't believe people are swimming over 100Km per year let alone 200/300 plus.

I'll start recording my stuff this year and see how it all adds up.

I've never kept yearly totals.  Could never think of any reason to.  I do keep weekly totals in my head occasionally  to keep consistency.  No injuries last years and kept ticking things over so at a guess.

Swim - about 250k

Bike - about 9500k

Run - about 1800k

40 to 44AG

Usually fluke sub 10.

I started with Garmin Connect at the end of May. So these nos are for ~7/12, adding a bit over 50% more for the start of the year when I was still 'old-school' with a journal (and doing a bit more). Can't be bothered adding that manually. 

As of today I'm in 50-54....

Swim- 147 km (so ~230 for the year )

Bike- 4700 (~7000)

Run- 1330 (~2000)

 

For reference, some may have seen a few of the pro's put their nos. out

eg. Charlotte McShane

swim=995

bike=9268

run=2751

Or, marathoner Jess Trengove

run~7500km

So swimming 2km per week is a lot?  For people who need to swim similar distances I  their races...? Would think thst the bare minimum...

Exactly, even my 500km is less than 10km per week, it's not a lot. Anyone doing 3 squad sessions per week would be getting close to that.

At the moment im doing around 7k a week. But i couldnt do it week in weeek out. So my average for the year is low. I just find it mind numbing (solo swimmer).

I'm going to have a swim issue this coming year (as if I wasn't slow enough!).  I have time in the evening but my new job/commute means the available time doesn't line up well with pool sessions.  The longest continuous session I can get is 55 mins but most are 45 and kick off either too early for my new routine or way too late.  

Weekends are available sometimes but don't always play nice with other sessions or family.

Gonna be tricky.  On the plus side, I have a great gym at work and can do lunchtime running/ Wattbike and strength stuff. B)

* Swim - 108 kms; Bike - 3,560 kms; Run - 570 kms; Gym - 22 hours.

* 3 x long course/HIM races; 1 x Kurnell; 1 x Nepean Tri; 1 x Tour de Cure ride - 330 kms.  

No injuries, only a lot of skin cancers burnt off or cut out. Disappointed I did not pass my swim and gym/core totals from the previous year. I should turn it around in 2018.

Got the year off to a good start:- 1) although I am working, I have left the missus up the coast for a week, so.. 2) I did 2.7 kms swimming yesterday plus organised a few other sessions this week.

Ride-4,355.7km

Run-336.2km

Others-Yoga-2 hrs/week, Indoor Soccer-1 game/week.
