|Do you start after the race season when you start training for the next race season, or do you go by the 1st of the year? Why?|
|Both ways. But I'm a statistics nut. nm||OldEdScott|

|First of the year to first of the year, actually. And I only lie early in the season, when my wife says, "Where have you BEEN for four hours?" It's better to say, "I did 75 miles in the hills" than "Well, I rode down to the coffee place and read the Sunday paper for an hour."
Why not from the end of the season? Probably goes back to when I was a non-racing runner, and just fell into the habit. I was a slave to the numbers in those days, recording distances to the tenth and times at least to the second. Now I'm more likely to jot down something like "32mi +/- @ 2 hrs."

|I reset my cyclocomputer Jan 1st. But I only keep track of my weekly miles May-Sep. After that I just go out and ride when I can and wander around with no set plan (it's more fun that way). At the end of the year (Dec 31st) I'll see how many miles I rode. I shoot for a miles goal and so far I'm way ahead of what I anticipated, mainly because of the lack of rain...|

|I start New Years. Then I take MB1's yearly mileage and divide it by 4 = my yearly mileage plus a fudge factor.|
|Good one ;-) . nm.||MB1|

|13 - 4 week months. 2003 starts on 12/29/2002 and ends on 12/27/2003.
I use 4 week blocks because I like to compare riding periods against each other and against previous years. Not using actual months removes the extra weekend days from longer months and makes comparisons cleaner.
|God, is it already time to calculate our yearly averages?||timfire|

|I have an excel program I use to log each workout, running, cycling and weight training. I log miles and the stats off my computer and heartrate monitor. Keeping a daily, weekly, monthly and year to date total. I current have about 14 years of data.|| |
