2007 Review & 2008 Goals


Well, I decided to add up my total training time for 2007. The numbers were about middle of the road for me. I would have hit 1,000,000 in the pool, but I got sick during the last few weeks of the year during a big swim block. I also had two running injuries that limited my running for a good chunk of the year.


2007 NUMBERS


SWIM: 963,495 YDS

BIKE: 17,446 KM

RUN: 2,924 KM

STRENGTH: 66.5

HRS XC SKI: 5 HR


TOTAL HRS: 1,114
