One of the biggest goals of my writing on this, the Stridey-est of Nations, was to keep myself honest as a runner: by talking about running in a running-centric venue, I'll likely put forth an honest effort in order to not embarrass myself. A few months ago I put together a graph of my training over the previous five years. The main takeaway was pretty obvious: I run far more when I'm training for a race. Since January I've trained for a half, gotten hurt and scrapped plans to run a marathon, and then started training for a 50 mile race this fall (the big uptick in mileage in June is a direct result of training starting again in full force).
While it may be a bit much to break the data down further than monthly, I thought taking a look at the data after adding six more months into the mix may be worthwhile; let's consider this our 'half-year in review'.
