While 2011 had similar overall mileage to 2010, it was achieved rather unevenly, as you can see from the chart below.
I had some nagging injuries early in the year, and took quite a bit of time off in June when I went back home to England. It was not until the second half of the year that my training came together and I focused on the 2011 North Coast 24 Hour National Championships. I didn't race much this year due to the early injuries and then later because I wanted to focus on the national championships.
