2021: a Summary

Miles Run: 850.5
Miles Swum: 119.5

In 2020, I ran 1000 miles. This year, I decided to give myself a mildly ambitious, but doable, goal of 100 miles of swimming during open swim season, which is 10 weeks, from mid-June to the end of August. Technically, I added 2 extra weeks, but I also did more than 100. My average was just under 10 miles per week. I like accomplishing goals like this swimming one; they motivate me and help me to do more than I thought I could, but there’s very little at stake and no prize or award at the end other than a sense of accomplishment, a stronger body, and tons of material for my writing projects.
