I apologize in advance for the extreme wonkiness of this post.
I swam a little over eighty miles in 2006. I don’t have much of an idea of whether this is excellent or somewhat paltry. I do know that it’s the first year since college that I’ve had a regular exercise regimen all year, and I liked it. This is an annotated chart of my Excel spreadsheet of my routine. Eighteen laps is about a half mile, thirty-six is a mile. I did a mile at one time twice in 2006. My goal for 2007 is to swim the “length of Lake Champlain” which is about 110 miles. If I get super ambitious, I’ll make some sort of progressive graphical lake chart. Probably I’ll just do this at the end of 2007.
