The first 1,000 miles have come in quite a bit differently from previous years.  Running miles are 2/3 of normal, but cycling, swimming, hiking/walking and rowing are higher (or in the case of rowing a first).

The benefits of the diversity are sinking in: alternating workouts to reduce stress, using workouts for the season (swimming when it’s too hot to run, or too icy) and improved strength, stamina and speed.

Here’s a breakdown:

Running – 650

Cycling – 305

Rowing – 21

Swimming – 17

Hiking / walking – 11

TOTAL – 1,004

Total number of workouts (including CrossFit, p90x, strength training and the aerobic miles above) –  343.  Equally important  total workout hours = 176 which is a shade over 50 minutes per workout and a little over 5 and 1/2 hours per week.
