Exercise Data

I mentioned last week that I’ve been journaling about exercise for over a month now. With all of that data—over forty events—it’s finally time to sift through it for patterns, to see what worked and what didn’t, and to come up with a new round of “experiments” to do as I swim, bike, and run.

Believe it or not, I am really more of a narrative person than a numbers person, and I already worry that looking at the data this way will obscure other important details or magnify the importance of data over context.

Nevertheless, I hope this different view into the last five weeks will illuminate trends. We shall see what comes from all of this.
