Slow down.

Tired Legs/Arms not Lungs

More upper cuts, less pats on the back.

Just get it done.

 

Thanks to MJK for the advice , priceless guidence. Learnt so much from the year.

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
