Cycling Progress Chart Updated
I’ve updated my chart that tracks my progress toward my cycling goal. Actually I update it at least every fortnight, so what I mean is that I’ve put an updated copy on this page (when you get there, you can click to enlarge).
A quick word of explanation about the chart’s anatomy:
- The x-axis across the bottom is the week of the year, in increments of two weeks.
- The left hand vertical axis is the mileage for each particular fortnight. Data is recorded by creating a bar chart - seen in yellow for road miles, and green for spin sessions.
- The right hand vertical axis is for the cumulative (running total) mileage for the year. This is recorded as a line graph, as the running total for the year.
- There are two other lines on the graph:
- A target line for each fortnight’s mileage - 125 miles per fortnight. When the barchart is below this line, I’ve under-achieved in a fortnight, and when it’s over, I’ve done more miles than are necessary
- A progress to target line, diagonally from the origin to the top right corner. When the cumulative total plot is below this line, I’m behind schedule, when it’s above the line, I’m ahead of target.
