1. Shoes by Year
The asics Cumulus is a slightly greater mid-cushion, perfect for sprinting down hills and is built like a tank. Be careful of its obnoxiously long shoe laces, as I do tuck them in so I don't trip. Its secondary gel cushion technology makes it soft on the heel especially.
2. Distance and Intensity Flow Diagrams
Red meant Race Days/Time Trial Efforts,
Orange meant Lactate Threshold,
Yellow meant Intervals,
Limegreen meant Steady State, and
Green meant Easy Only Days.
Usually after a big race in red, you'll see some solid green easy days.
Lots of easy bike workouts here in green, which gives me more base to focus on running.
You might be wondering about the missing data after September. I did take a little break from swimming, that's indeed just me slacking off. :)
3. Intensity Breakdown
Here's the aggregation by intensity. The run comparison is neat as more percentage is spent in easy and more racing as opposed to 2015. Less volume and less intervals, and yet despite more racing, was the strategy for 2016, which resulted in personal PBs in half and full marathons last year.
4. Bike Terrain
For 2016, I was still training blind without the power meter for the most part, but the volume is up there. 2017 will be fascinating with the new power meter. :)
5. Lucky Shoes for Long Course Races
A Winston's classic graph. It looks like there might be one more big race for the 1400s before I retire them.
