The Tour de Cullman

I am excited to be able to participate this year in the annual Tour de Cullman – an informal training ride, race, and party put on by Carson Glasscock and the Cullman Cycling Club. Check out the topocreator.com map I made. I’ll report back on Sunday about all the fun!

2009 Year-end review season stats

Definitely my best season ever thanks to a growing strong team, some good luck, and a lot of hard work! Here is the summary statistics for my 2009 season racing as a cat 1 for one of the top amateur teams in the South. This year I am reporting my statistics from January 12 – October 4. January 12th was my first training day back from a two-week mission trip to Nicaragua at the beginning of the year, where I also had the opportunity to race and win a local criterium on a borrowed bike. October 4th was the date of my last race for this year’s season. So over the course of those 266 days, I logged these statistics:

Statistic Avg Max Min Total
Weekly training time (hours) 14.72 20.77 8.7 559.72
Weekly distance (miles) 268.4 369.4 187.9 10,197
Workouts per week (#) 9 13 4 443
Weekly climbing (feet) 14,124 29,275 4,062 536,772
