2010: A Year in Review

I honestly can not believe that 2010 is already coming to an end. This year has been full of ups and downs, excitement, some tears and disappointment, lots of laughter, love, and many many great times!

I think it's safe to say that I can post 2010 stats because from the looks of this storm, I don't think I will ge to the gym tomorrow, but if I do I will make changes where necessary...

2010 Stats:
Run - 378.08 miles
........ 304.39 miles in 2009
Bike - 1260.64 miles ..... 1036.16 miles in 2009
Swim - 64,400 Yds ........ 110,350 Yds in 2009

When you look at these numbers, you can obviously say that running and biking increased in 2010, and swimming decreased from 2009 to 2010 ... but I am happy that I got into a routine of incorporating more strength training, stretching, core work, in addition to a yoga/pilates class here and there. Without those things, I don't think I would have been able to recover from that nasty knee issue!

Asside from the stats, let's take a look at all many things that occured in 2010!
  • Started dating the BF in January
  • A friend's fun birthday party in Downtown Minneapolis
  • Welcome home party for the BIL - returning from duty in Iraq (for good)
  • A few sessions of adult swim team
  • Indoor triathlon in May
  • A couple bridal showers
  • attended 6 different weddings
  • Two Twins games at the new Target Field
  • Two camping trips with the BF and friends
  • Bret Michael's concert
  • A long trip with the BF to San Diego!
  • Volunteering for the Fargo Youth Run
  • Participating in the Fargo Marathon Challenge - completing both 5K and 10K
  • A Sprint Triathlon in June - Average Joe
  • Women's Triathlon in Minneapolis in August
  • Bachelorette party in Wisconsin
  • Brad Paisley concert in October
  • Full Moon 5K in November
  • Vikings game vs. AZ Cardinals
  • Sioux Hockey game with the BF and family
  • Jingle Bell 5K in December
  • My 30th birthday -- two birthday parties, one a surprise by the BF!
  • Mannheim Steamroller concert
I am sure I am missing a handful of important dates as it has been quite an eventful year and I have loved almost every minute of it! I can only imagine what 2011 has to offer! I need to start putting together ideas for 2011 and hope to get them posted up here soon!

How has 2010 treated you?

Looks like you had a really good year- in life and on the work out front :) It's good that you notice that the decrease in swimming is okay because you were doing other strength training/yoga/pilates classes- those do seem to be really important for injury prevention and recovery. Yay for 2010 :)
