2017 Year End Stats

This was a rough year.  Although my training time was at the lowest level since I started tracking it, I still consider the year a success.

Personal and professional challenges yielded so much growth.  I learned so much and put that learning into action as much as I could.

I learned a lot about choices, decisions, consequences, faith, and humility.  I am hopeful that years from now I can look back on 2017 as a true turning point in my life, and smile with satisfaction at how I am continuing to benefit from the practices and habits that I implemented when I had the chance.







This Strava graph shows my weekly training volume over the past 12 months.

I still have a lot to learn.  I still have a long way to go.

I am a better person than I was a year ago.  If that isn’t success, I don’t know what is.

I can’t follow a structured training program right now.  I haven’t raced in almost two years and don’t know when that streak will end.  My only fitness goal for the near future is to sweat.  It doesn’t matter how.  Just do something (weights, bike, run, row) to break a sweat once in a while.  Build on that.  Evaluate.  Grow.  Embrace the Suck.  Fall in love with the Grind.

I hope you all have a happy and successful 2018!  I am going to give it my best shot…
