2009 Running Summary - 1286 miles, 71% of running days

Here is a summary of my running logs in 2009:

And a bar chart that shows mileage for each day:

And finally a summary for each quarter:

Quarter Summary
Jan 1 - Mar 31, 2009
Apr 1 - Jun 30, 2009
Jul 1 - Sep 30, 2009
Oct 1 - Dec 31, 2009


The last quarter was just terrible in terms of number of running days and pace but was a good recovery period as well. However I can certainly feel it in terms of the overall reduced pace. The biggest reasons for missed out running in 2009 were falling sick or traveling with no gym facility in the hotel.

Two goals for 2010:

  • Reduce the number of missed days of running - With no upcoming travel plans, this might be a good time to catch up on this goal.
  • Increase the overall mileage - This will require more than a few long distance runs and so will try to get them early on.

The charts shown above can be easily generated using using a Rails application or a Wicket application on GlassFish.
