In the past I’ve posted a shot of my biking stats for the year. In keeping with tradition, here’s my cycling stats for 2019:
But with my surgery, most of those stats are really 2019 but missing the last five or six weeks of the year. I can’t help but think I’d have hit at least 8,000 miles and 500,000 feet of climbing if I’d kept riding between November 21 and December 31.
Besides which, this year is what I’m most proud of is one statistic:
111.2 miles / 26 hrs / 8,000 feet
This is the number of miles, hours, and elevation gained as I walked and jogged in December since I started active surgery recovery. THAT feels like a much greater accomplishment than all the miles I rode in the 11 months before.
