Wow I have been slacking…..
Since the introduction of trainingpeaks to track my rides and twitter to post random thoughts, pics/vid this blog has been layed to the side….
Thought I’d try and do a monthly update still though.
Decmeber saw Base training ramp up big time 522 miles! Decemeber was my biggest month of 2009… wtf? historically decmeber and january I sit around and get fat… This year I lost about 10lbs from November to February… nice change 🙂
Ok the stats for 2009 were bigger and better then I could have ever hoped.
Total Miles 4,097
MTB miles 1,346
road miles 2,228
CX miles 126
Trainer miles 396
holy crap I did almost 400 miles on my freakin trainer! wow that was $80 well spent on that thing!
Month broke down as follows
Grand total of 381 hours on the bike in 2009 (thats avg’ing more then an hour a day all year 🙂
Gonna say that 2009 was bigger and better then I dreamed, started to get comfortable racing XC. Raced in 12 XC races and 1 Marathon race. Best result was 2nd in XC and I took 3rd in the Marathon. I plan on racing CAT 2 for 1 more season I’m really hoping to make the jump to CAT 1 after this year.

Its been a wet/cold winter here in Socal (well cold and wet for socal) but i’ve been pretty diligent about training. Save for a gym related injury and some knee issues (due to not stretching enough) I’m trucking along as I gear up for the first race of the season.
