Bike and Run miles through the years

I was shining up the 'Roo this morning for a local sprint race I'm headed to tomorrow. My dad, who is here visiting with my mom, asked how many miles I had on the bike. It's a little hard to say, since I was on the road bike prior to June 2011 and I still use it some, but I was curious how many miles I've logged since I started training.

You can tally your workouts on TrainingPeaks by doing a search for a specific discipline and time frame then by looking at the cumulative stats at the bottom of the window...but it maxes out at 500 workouts, so I ended up having to do it year-by-year. (Note to TrainingPeaks...please fix!) Maybe there is a better way to do it, but I haven't found it.

 See here at the bottom?
Here is the year-by-year:

Clearly 2014 is a "down" year for training volume, but so it goes.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow's Claytor Lake Triathlon. I need some fun. I've had a rough week with poison ivy, a popped blood vessel in my eye, and some GI problems though. I cut out the training extras the last few days - the gym and a pre-race brick for today - in the hopes of gaining some energy and getting out of this rut of feeling pretty flat lately.

Here's a photo of me and my eye:

 I'll be channeling some "Arnold" in the morning. So watch out ;-)
