I haven't run for fun or training in almost a month. All of my running has been for UPS lately, and it just isn't the same. I'm looking forward to getting back out on the road soon.
When I am training, I keep a running log to track progress, look for reasons for injury, and see how training relates to results. I made it to a bookstore today to pick up a log for 2009, and it was good time to look back at 2008's results.
Overall, I ran and biked a little less, but the results were pretty good. 2008 vs 2007:
2008 649 miles
2007 660 miles
2008 878 miles
2007 1346 miles
2008 17 miles
2007 13 miles
In 2008 I completed two full marathons, three half marathons, and a 24 hour relay run. As to results, I set new personal bests for the marathon, half marathon and 10k.
For 2009, there will probably be less events, but hopefully I can keep up the training to stay in shape. Because there was another good number as a result of the training - I am 12 pounds lighter than I was at the start of 2008. And I need to keep that trend going.
