2023 #Strava #YearInSport

If you've been following along on this blog for awhile, you may remember that I have been sharing my Strava YearInSport stats over the past couple of years.

I pay more attention to my cycling goals and totals on Strava, but the YearInSport stats cover all activities.

Sort of interesting to me. Not sure if any blog readers care, but I'll share regardless. To be honest, this just helps me compare year-to-year how I do.

This year, I logged 777 hours on Strava.
I covered a total of 7,832 miles and 352,926 feet elevation gained. 
I was "active" 336 total days.

This is up from 6,669 miles, 313,311 feet, and 300 active days in 2022.

I totaled 6,874 miles, 343,831 feet and 300 active days in 2021.

I believe the Strava definition of "Active Day" is simply logging at least one activity on any given day. I log morning walks, even though those are not really active workouts, so I sort of think the 336 days isn't necessarily a great measure.

But ... it doesn't really matter.

It looks like I was "active" every day in both April and August.

Unsurprisingly, September was my biggest month for miles and elevation gain. This, of course, was because I was riding a ridiculous number of miles on my Great Cycle Challenge.

If I'm doing my math correctly, my total elevation gained was over 12 Everests, which means I averaged climbing Mt. Everest every month. 

12 x 29,032 = 348,384

Sort of cool.

For some reason, Strava says I was active over 94 hours in March, making it the most activity I've logged. 

To be honest, I don't know why that would be. I suspect that is an error ... like maybe I forgot to stop recording an activity over night once or twice.

But, I'm just not that curious to research and verify.

My longest activity was 102.3 miles ... "First Century Ride of 2023".

Yep, 100 miles.
That's right ... On my bicycle.
Yep, in one day.
No, my butt is fine.
Nope, I'm not crazy.
Yes, I know you don't like to drive that far.

I did increase my Strava cycling goal for 2024. But ... I actually decreased my elevation goal.

Keep an eye on Sheppy's Blog: Strava, and you'll see how I progress through the year.
