Annual Training Log - Swim, Bike and Run Miles for the 2013 Triathlon Year

In 2012 I did my first ever yearly tally of training miles. That post can be found here. In this post I will present my 2013 training log. For reference my training years start in December and do0 not coincide with the calendar year.

For comparison I also have Chris "Macca" McCormack's training miles for the 2002 year. He is a 2x Ironman World Champion and according to his book, "I'm Here to Win", in 2002 he swam 720 miles, biked 18,275 miles, and ran 2,907 miles. That seems like a lot of miles and especially on the bike. Here is how my 2013 season compares:

Here are my yearly swimbike, and run totals:

Total: 10,895 Miles / 1012 hours 

Swim: 638 miles (1,122,000 yards)  / 288 hours
Bike: 8,584, miles / 496 hours
Run: 1,728 miles /  211 hours
Core:  17 hours 

Those numbers come out to an average of 84.33 hours per month, and 19.46 hours per week. Weekly mileage is 12.3 miles (21,500 yards) swimming, 165 miles biking, and 33 miles running.

For those looking for a little more granular data by month then here you go:
