Summary of 2017 Running

Looks like 2017 is coming to a close. To end the year, I got in a nice 10K run on the treadmill this morning at sub 8:00 pace. Felt good. I've enjoyed the faster running...but I miss the long runs and ultras. I'll shoot for a better balance between speed and distance next year--including races.

Here are my running statistics for 2017 with a comparison to last year. This year was not great, but better than last year. I expect 2018 to be even better. I'm getting wiser. More disciplined with less injuries.

My longest running streak was 27 days. My longest non-running streak was only 3 days. That happened once. I was consistent this year. No real injuries (except for a trip and fall on the road that beat up my knee). No extended illnesses--just one common cold. I worked quite a bit on speed (instead of slow distance). Even with the focus on speed, I stayed injury-free due to my attention to morning heart rate and heart rate variability. If these were off, I took it easy. When those HR stats returned to normal, I could push a little more.

Goals for next year? I'll post those next year!
