# Sport stats, first half of 2013

## Some numbers about my sport activities in the first half of 2013.

After attending the Semi Trail Ticino three weeks ago, I'm taking a break to recover after 6 months of intense training -- intense for my standards, of course.

As I did at the end of 2012, I'm publishing some numbers about my training activites.

Please read carefully the introduction to my 2012 post: the same remarks apply here. Long story short: this is **just for fun**, don't take it as a serious training plan. Many of these numbers are based on **rough estimates** and, finally, feel free to **tell me** what you think about it.

This year I covered approximately **467km** running for a cumulative elevation gain of **35415m**, up to now. The months where I did more elevation gain by running are February, March (approx. 7000m) and June (7400m): these months have been fundamental in preparing for the Semi Trail Ticino (see **Figure 1**, the blue dot outlier corresponds to the Semi Trail).

**Figure 2** shows the elevation gain stratified by activity type: most of the elevation gain was covered by running. My log about the ski-mountaineering is not 100% complete, so I probably miss some meters there. These numbers do not account for the bicycle commuting (approximately 400km till now).

This autumn, if possible, I would like to dedicate more time to the **mountain bike**.

Below you can find a larger version of these images, together with some other plots illustrating the data I collected in the first half of 2013.

Attached to this post you can find the **source code** and the **input data** used to compute these numbers (the code is written in R).
