Happy 2011.5

As of noon today, half of the year has passed. That’s right folks – we’re on the downhill side of 2011. Anyway, I figured that this would be a good time to reflect on my goals. Specifically, I wanted to figure out how I was doing in terms of the athletic goals I had set for myself.

So far this year I’ve managed to check off a couple of things on my Not-So-Bucket-List list, although I think the one that made me the most happy/excited/proud was the marathon. I’m stoked to be doing my second marathon in October, assuming my body allows it.

Anyway, without further ado, here are my current results. The Goal column indicates what I aim to accomplish this year, the Total column indicates what I have accomplished so far, and the Expected column indicates where I should be by the end of the year (assuming I can simply double my current results).

Total Distance by Category & Goal (2011 to Date), and Expected Yearly Total
Item Goal Total Expected
Walking 1800 km 801.8 km 1603.6
Running 500 km 373.8 km 747.6
Biking 2000 km 373.9 km 747.8
Yoga 20,000 min 6275.0 min 13550.0 min

While I’m not doing so well on the Walking, Biking or Yoga goals, my running goal should easily be reached. Of course, I fully expect the Biking to skyrocket pretty quickly, as I’m confident that I can put in at least 100km on my bike each week for all of July, August, and September. That would give me another 1300 km. However, I’m hoping to do more than that – especially if I ever want to tackle the Century Bike. If I want to make my goal by the end of September, I need to bike 125 km per week. That seems reasonable.

My yoga numbers should also improve this summer, but I’ll explain that at a later date.

As for walking – well, once the colder weather arrives (ew), I will be adding more kilometres then. I’m not sure how close I’ll come to the goal, but hopefully it won’t be too far off.

Because I’m a nerd, I also present the total number of activities by month (comparing last year to this year). The nice thing is that I have managed to up the number of activities every month this year.

Number of Activities by Month and Year (Excluding Yoga), Plus % Change Year Over Year. 
Month 2010 2011 % Change
January 0 19 \infty
February 0 23 \infty
March 15 30  100
April 12 32  167
May 21 43  105
June 38 46  21
July 35 na  na
August 48 na  na
September 39 na  na
October 38 na  na
November 17 na  na
December 6 na  na

And last but definitely not least, I’ve broken down my distances by month and year for each of the activities. The bonus – I’ve managed to up my total distance each and every month so far this year. w00t!
