2011 vs. 2012

Quick, before the first month of 2013 ends!  Let’s compare the last two years of running.

2011 2012 Δ
Miles Run 1000.28 1120.40 +12%
# of Runs 185 199 +7.5%
Avg Distance 5.40 5.63 +4%
Avg Miles/Wk 19.24 21.55 +12%
Avg Speed 5.4 mph 5.9 mph +9%
Elev Gain 25,802 ft 72,774 ft +182%
Calories 90,296 82,577 -8.5%
Half Marathon PR 2:06:49 (Nov) 1:54:48 (Dec) -12:01 (-9.5%)
5K PR 28:07 (Aug) 25:11 (May) -2:56 (-10.4%)

More miles and more elevation gain at a faster pace with fewer calories burned.

All this to say: I guess I have become more efficient at running.  Also, I like numbers.

  1. I'm taking a class in data analysis this semester and I'm starting to think that might be like your heaven. Seriously though those are HUGE improvements especially considering that elevation gain! Do you actually track your calories with a HRM for every workout?
