Edit 12-31-21: Someone was asking me about my fitness stuff since they are also into running while up in Virginia earlier in 2021. I explained to them how I do things and that I’m not training for anything. This is just a personal thing I like doing and want to get better at. Decided to share what I sent to her. My 2021 recap so far…. HOKA Carbon x2 for running
NOTE: I cycle and do walking sessions as well. The walking at events are not considered sessions and I do not track them as a routine.
JT Runs with distance and my 20k and I do not use pre-workout energy drinks or gel packs – just me, my diet, and water.
January: 9 sessions distance 149.41km (92.8 miles) No 20k ran (but all sessions were 16k+)
February: 8 run sessions distance 114.57km (71.1 miles) No 20 km (but all sessions session were 16k+ with one 13k and one 18k)
March: 7 run sessions distance 52.67km (32.7 miles) NO 20k, *I changed my routine distance, because I modified my fitness plan.
April: 13 run sessions distance 65.46km (40.6 miles) NO 20k
May: 14 sessions distance 45.01km (27.9 miles) No 20k This was a bad month May 24th my mom passes away.
June: 10 run sessions distance 47.44km (29.4 miles) One 20k: 20.07km 5:17/km Maryland 6-17-21
July: 8 run sessions distance 55.22km (34.31) 20k session did not do one in July, 50k walk completed 7-17-21 as a birthday present to myself. I walked from Marine land Florida to the Flagler beach pier. This day generated over 60-thousand steps and was a target goal I decided to make off one of my apps i use.
August 9 sessions distance 79.01km (49.0 miles) One 20k: 20.05km 5:25/km Florida 8-31-21 *end of July I set a 5th workout goal to do one 20k a month. So August is the beginning of one 20k run each month.
September: 3 sessions distance 49.9km (31.0 miles) One 20k: 23.21km 5:28/km 23.21 km COMPLETED The beginning of my working road trip for the events I cover and this always messes up my routine schedule. I use a certain section of a local trail and time myself so I can see how well I am doing or how crappy I am doing.
October: 1 session distance 20.02km – One 20k: 20.02km 5:28/km 20.02 km COMPLETED. I am on the road a lot this month so my routine suffer. It is hard to do my daily routines and get the proper amount of rest afterward.
November: 5 sessions distance 35.3km One 16k: 1:24.21 – 5:18/km Started to get back to my daily routines. I could not finish the 20k and it was the first session in 2021 that I could not finish and had to stop. I decided to increase my December sessions and focus on running so I can complete my monthly 20k’s. I hope to be able to punish to 25k in December.
December: 10 sessions distance 96.84km – One 20k: 25.05km 5:09/km 25.05 km COMPLETED I ran nine 7-kilometer session but made sure to run my 30 minutes minimum as well. I hope to get my 7 below 30 minutes but did not get to done for December will try again in Jan 2022. The 20k felt fantastic and I did manage to push it out to 25k (my longest run to date) That last couple kilometers sucked but I did not give in and out the 25k. I will do a short 4k 11th run in December just get a Strava goal out of the way.
