2011 Workout account

January 3, 2012

2011 is behind us, let me have a look at how I did during the year. A friend of mine told me how long he took from couch to 10k, half marathon then full marathon. I then plotted below to have a look at how I did it.

At first I focused at my progress in reaching heights in the chart, i.e. longer distances, later I found it interesting at the low end of the trend, i.e. I haven’t done much shorter distances. I would say I was getting very lazy, i.e. unless I could spare an hour or so I didn’t bother to go out for a 30 minutes workout. Since I like this beautiful route so much the journey in a car there requires 30 minutes I just wouldn’t workout for 30 minutes and drive back.

From X’mas day to 2nd January I ran every other day and have done 64.5k I find first 3k to be the hardest, once I got over that I wouldn’t feel the tiredness and could at least do 10k.

Can I run a full marathon, it’s hard to predict!

PS: rewind back a year I started 2011 as my Happy Half Marathon Year!
