Tracking mileage with DAYTUM

January 15, 2011 § Leave a comment

I came across DAYTUM, an online tool that allows you to track things and display graphs/charts showing your progress.  While not especially designed for running or exercising, it does work for a very basic tracking system for those.  You could embed the graphs into a webpage or, I believe, on your iProduct desktop, if you wanted to–to embed into a wordpress blog, you need a plug-in that does not offer as a an option on their free site.

I was especially interested in this because one of the last projects at my last job was to project manage the development of an application that did basically this, albeit at a higher level of sophistication.

DAYTUM is free, wasn’t too bad to set up–might fill someone’s need sometime.



2011 Goals

January 1, 2011 § 2 Comments

Now that another year is upon us, time for some goal setting.  Some of these are redundant, some are challenging but all, I think, are obtainable.

  • 1,000 miles
  • Never fall behind 3 miles/day.
  • No 0 weeks
  • Serious X-training twice a week–Yoga, stretching, biking, or plyometrics.
  • Volunteer at at least one race.
  • Dramatic increase in the number of quality miles run.  My fastest mile in 2010 was 6:25, which was 48 seconds faster than the fastest mile I had run up to that point last year.  Overall, I ran 1 sub-6:30 mile, 6 sub-7:00 miles, 32 sub-7:30 miles, and 132 sub-8:00 miles.
  • Sub-20:00 5k.
  • Sub-1:30:00 Half Marathon.
  • Run consecutive 6:52 miles, pure & average.  (2010 streak was 1/3.1)
  • Do my first dual-event event.
  • Possibly do a relay–Ragnar or a Mojo Loco?

Possible Race Schedule (BOLD are Races I Am Targeting):

The race schedule will be a work-in-progress but right now, the two half marathons and 15K in the spring are going to be my core races, with Bjorklund being my target race.
