I had a lot of fun out on the trails this season.
It is the first time I actually have data about all of those runs, however.
It is nice to have an app on my phone that not only tracks the distance I run every time, but also records the time, my average pace, and keeps track of any personal best that I may have reached that particular day.
Here are the official stats for My 2015 Running Season.
- Total Kilometers – 300.7 km
- Total Trail Runs – 61
- Average Distance Covered – 4.92 km
- Average Pace – 05:42 per km
- Farthest Run – 8.02 k,
- Longest Run – 44:22 mins
- Fastest Kilometer – 04:27
- Fastest Mile – 07:22
- Fastest 5 km – 25:09
Keep in mind that I usually run trails with a lot of hills and challenging footing. As such, my pace is a little slower than it would be on flat, even ground.
On average I find that on a flat surface I can cover a kilometer is just over four minutes. On the trail, it takes me about five and a half minutes to do so.
Here are the individual run statistics starting from the most recent trail run to the start of my 2015 season.
It was a late start to the running season this year. I did run a few times before I started using the app, however.
Starting running again after a winter off, is always a tough process. My first two weeks of getting back into it are rather slow and are for a much shorter distance. That’s why I didn’t track those runs using the app.
I like having this data to look back on. Now I can see how consistent I am from season to season.
All I know is that my personal best for a 5 km is 19:03. It seems, I am past my prime days. But I am proud of these numbers and can’t wait for it to get warm enough, for the trails to be run-worthy again, and to see if I can smash any of these records next year.
I still have a few new running spots that I haven’t blogged about yet. I will do so in the next couple of weeks to add to the vast collection of trails I already have.
See you on the trails soon!
