According to my Strava stats, my running distance decreased from 861 km to 783 km from last year. My active days also decreased from 86 to 71 days. In spite of these statistics, I do believe my overall fitness increased. This is because all of these runs were completed with 10 kg of weights and I’ve also completed more, varied exercises that weren’t tracked with Strava. This includes bouldering, which I’ve taken up towards the end of the year.

I did not go running quite as regularly as in 2021 – among other things because of the several holiday trips I went on last year – but I am quite happy with my progress. I’ve maintained my weight of 80 kg almost exactly on the button for the whole year and am continuing to transform fat into muscle mass at a slow, but very steady pace. Here’s to keeping it up in 2023!
