2018 Mileage Review and 2019 Goals

One of my goals for this year was to faithfully log my bike and swim mileage (as well as my run mileage) so that I could set 2019 goals. Until this year, I had no idea how far I biked or swam in a year. This year’s bike miles include outdoor miles and Zwift miles, so it’s not an exact science, but it’s data nonetheless.

So how did I do?

Final 2018 Mileage
Swim – 58.1 miles
Bike – 1651 miles
Run – 314 miles

And you know what? I’m pretty proud of those miles. My run mileage is the lowest it’s been in years, but look at all the miles I got in even with an injury and surgery! I set my goal for the year at 500 miles, and considering that I wasn’t able to run until mid-May and then had to build up from zero, hitting 300 miles is awesome.

Of course, since this year was an aberration, I’m still not sure what good mileage goals might be. So I’m just going to take a guess at a good challenge, try to push myself, but most importantly, have fun and stay healthy and uninjured. I apparently logged activities on Strava 230 days this year. I wonder how many active days I will have in a healthy year!

2019 Mileage Goals
Swim – 75 miles (maybe this will inspire me to actually GO to the pool)
Bike – 2000 miles (this one scares me too)
Run – 500 miles
