3900y total, which included some pace 100's....
...Which brought me to a total of 1,000,320m for the year. I'm sure that I swam 2-3 x as much (or more) per year in my high school and college careers, but it's an okay number considering I'm in my mid-late 40's.
New approach next year: more pace work, less focus on distance (until OWS race season starts), and maybe trips to the various USMS Nationals (pool and OWS). No total distance goal, though.
I always tend to have overall distance/volume goals for whatever I am doing. Its my mentality of getting to something big through consistency and repitition and I know if the goal is big enough that I can't miss too much. It forces daily/weekly focus to not allow for goose eggs.
Next year, I am hoping for 1000km swimming + 10000km of cycling if my rehab stays on track. I have been able to ride OK this fall and on the trainer, so if that keeps up, then maybe I can trade some time I spent this year in the car commuting to work and the pool to just riding to the pool and work . I am also moving the office of my tech startup to a location that it is close enough to bike commute from home to office, office to pool, pool to office, office to home. If I can do 30-35 weeks where I am getting around 150km commuting around and not in the car, that's could be up to 5000km of free bike mileage. This year I am ending up with 1200km of swimming and 4000 km of cycling and that's losing a large chunk of 2 months of summer biking after being run over by a bus....so hopefully next year is better. If I can actually get back to running properly, then I'll adjust this to 1000km swim, 1000km run, 8000km bike (total 10,000km).
