Overall I was pretty consistent. My running kinda took a hit in August as I strained my calf.
Yards: Actually Unknown. Garmin Connect no longer allows you to go in and change your swim distance. So everytime I do drills or kicks it doesn't record it properly. And I stopped logging everything into Slowtwitch. It just got to be too much to keep up with.
Time: 138:59 (Down 2:23 from last year or 2.4%) Not too bad really
Biggest Week: June 27th (4:29)
Biggest Month: November (13:57) Getting motivated for Sunbelt!
Biggest Week: 248 Miles August 22nd
Biggest Month: 782.1 Miles in June
Longest Ride: 90 Miles on April 30th
Down 800 miles from last year, but . . . only down about 16 hours from last year, so a lot more trainer time in 2016. I did six rides over 80 miles. Basically I felt like I didn't need to ride more than 4 hours in training for a 70.3 race.
Distance: 1,269.6 Miles
Biggest Week: 50.4 Miles June 13th
Biggest Month: 171 miles June
Longest Run: 17 Miles
Significant drop from last year, almost 400 miles less. Partly due to not training for a 140.6 and partly due to injuring my calf after Lake Logan. So I should be fresh for the upcoming season, right?
Time: 555:59 down from 642:28 or 11.0%
Distance (Bike and Run):6,258 down from 7,424 or 15.7%

01.09 Joe Davis Memorial 10K
Fun local race. Was happy to get 1st Masters.
03.05 SunBelt Swim Meet
My first swim meet. Not a total disaster.
03.26 Know Your Craft 5K
Another fun race with a lot of friends.
04.02 Cooper River Bridge Run
Kind of a Bucket List race. Interesting Experience.

Good start to the tri season at probably my favorite venue. Best finish in an Ironman Brand race.
07.09 IM Muncie 70.3
Mission accomplished to Qualify for 70.3 worlds against a stout field.
07.26 Cane Creek Sprint
A sprint, on a weeknight. Fun for all.
08.06 Lake Logan Half
Tough course and didn't feel rested.
09.25 IM Augusta 70.3
The wheels finally came off. Still a fun weekend.
11.12 Charlotte Marathon Relay
Not too shabby for being pretty out of shape.
11.19 Waxhaw Beer Mile
My first beer mile. It will be on like Donkey Kong next year.
|3 for 3 Division I Tri Club Champions|
2016 USAT Ranking a little lower this year. Ranked 2nd in South Carolina and 3rd in the Southeast Region with a 95.713 (down from my 97.3 last year). So my nationwide ranking fell from 44th to 78th in M40-44
Overall pretty happy with 2016. Got an AG award at all 3 Ironman 70.3's I did. Qualified for Worlds at each one. In those 3 races, Big Sexy Racing also won the Division I Tri Club Award. Hard to complain about that.
So what does 2017 Hold? More Ironman 70.3's, a race I have to fly to, a World Championships, and an Ultra Run. Hopefully also some sweet placings in my new AG: 45-49! And hopefully that will help me not embarrass myself at 70.3 Worlds this year.
