2010 Journals

As I posted last year I have a few nontraditional journals that I like to keep. I like to keep track of my bike commuting days and miles, all the books I read, and all the ways that I injury myself. Here's a recap of how 2010 turned out.

Bike Commuting Highlights

  • 175 total days bike commuting

  • Logged 1,593 miles bike commuting

  • Burned 56,735 calories commuting

  • Had 4 car driven days (this was either driving myself or by Jess & the girls

  • I know there were some bus days in Cincinnati but I didn't keep track of them. I'd probably say 10

  • 37 days riding recreationally (this is mountain and errands [yes I consider riding the bike for errands recreation])

  • Logged 249 rec miles

  • Burned about 8,726 calories riding rec

  • In total logged 212 'days' on the bike for a total of 1,842 miles, and burned about 65,461...not too shabby

The Body Journal
Here's all the ways I injured myself in 2010. I had to feel it for at least 2 days to make the cut.

That rounds out 2010 in terms of journals. So I ask again, does anyone else keep any nontraditional journals?

Dude I love this. Amazing bike/commuting numbers. Interesting book list and I love the body injury diagram. It's crazy you kept track.
