I’m a bit late in putting together this summary but I couldn’t let the opportunity to post more graphs pass me by! Above is a graph of my 2007 running mileage by week. My total running mileage (including races) was 1149.6 miles / 1850.1 km which averages out to 22.1 miles / 35.6 km per week. I had set the goal of exceeding 1000 miles this year and I achieved that on November 10 with lots of time to spare. The biggest week I did was 38.8 miles three weeks prior to the Ottawa marathon. The week of the marathon was a close second coming in at 38.5 miles.
Running my first marathon was definitely my biggest running achievement of 2007. I couldn’t have asked for anything better than getting to go home to Ottawa and having the support of Mom, Dad, Alli and Matt out on the course. The marathon (4:25:13) aside it was also a really good year for racing shorter distances. I set new personal bests in the 5K – 23:19, 12K – 1:00:48 and half marathon – 1:55:33 then 1:51:59. I think the WAVA graph below shows a nice progression in my race times. What’s interesting is that my 5K times appear to out of whack with the rest of my race times. I guess I’m good at pushing hard over short distances.
So there’s not much more to say. Runningwise I rocked 2007 and I’m looking forward to good things in 2008.
