Happy New Year! The start of a new year is a good time to reflect on the past. For me, it’s hard to compare 2014 to 2013. 2013 was a massive year of running accomplishments: several PBs, my first international race, and of course, my first full marathon. 2014 was a little more relaxed. Five races total and a lot of casual, fun running in between. No PBs, but there was my first ever relay and that one time I came in 4th place at a race!
Today, I pulled all my stats from Nike+ to see what sort of running year I’ve had. Here’s how 2014 went down:
- 89 total runs with an average distance of 7.1K
- 34,786 calories burned (Note: I probably consumed that much over the holidays alone!)
- 632.4 total kilometers (compared to 1,008.3K in 2013!)
- A total running time of 64:09:48
- An overall average pace of 6:05/kilometre
- 42% of my runs were in the evening, 37% in the morning, 21% in the afternoon
2015 will be a much different year for running. Soon, I will be moving to London, England and I’m excited to sign up for several interesting races in a new country. My overall goal is to run for general fitness and enjoyment and do one seriously badass event before the end of the year – something like the Tough Mudder in London or the Seven Hills of Edinburgh, a 14 mile race with 2,200 feet of ascent and descent. To be determined…
What are your running goals for 2015?
For me stay healthy, build on my mental strength, go sub-21 in the 5K, and 1:45 or better in the half!! 🙂
Amazing goals!! You will crush it!
I love how Nike can pull stats like that! My goal is to train for a 13k race in April…. and then maybe a half by the late summer? We’ll see what my body says.
A very admirable goal April! Cant wait for baby to be old enough to hold a “go mom go!” sign and cheer you on! Xoxox
I’ll have to pull my Nike running stats – you had a great year in ’14! My goal is to run a half at an average pace of 6’/km – closest I’ve come is 2hr 10 min – so I believe it’s doable! I would love to have an age group win someday and beat my 5km and 10km PB’s. We’ll see what this year holds!
