I had one numerical goal when I started the year and that was to hit 4,000 miles. I hadn’t achieved that in previous years and therefore I figured why not. 2017 had been my best year ever and as 2018 had gone a bit backwards compared to that I decided it was the year I was going to focus on using my turbo trainer. So, here are there results, courtesy of some pretty pictures from Excel.
|Month||Road (OUTDOOR)||Turbo (INDOOR)||TOTAL|
The summary being that the total mileage was 4,430 and this came from a total of 123 activities of which four were century rides.
April was the best month for mileage with just over 550 miles, although June wasn’t far behind with 541. The main difference between the two however was that most of June’s was outside where as 133 miles were completed on the turbo trainer in April.
3 Year Summary
Looking back over the last three years, the graph looks a little different.
This shows that the mileage in the second half of 2019 typically exceeded those of 2018 and 2017 which when drilled down, highlights that the turbo trainer work didn’t ease off as much as it did in previous years.
In 2017 the turbo trainer contribution was 12% of the total, in 2018 it increased to 13% and in 2019 finished on 19% creating an average of 15% over the last three years.
