    first of all i would like to say that it is just plain discouraging to me and all the other athletes i know, that some people can not put in hours and not roller ski either and still be quite fast.

    with that said counting hours is relative,
    for example today i got on my road bike for two hours and with all the stops and crossings, it is easy for the heart rate to drop to below even a recovery zone. i will only count the time that my heart rate is in the zone so for today that was 110 and above, which meant my 2 hour bike was actually only 1.5 hours and 1.5 was written in the log

    i am 17 and am in the process of a 610 hour year.
    i trained 540 as a 16 yr old
    also that 610 number would be a low end estimate, i figure that because im not even counting the bi-weekly strength training that could mean if i counted hours differently this year would or could be counted somewhere in the 700s so its all relative

    with strength training some ppl might count the hour u are in the weightroom as 1 hour of trainin and some may only count the seconds u are actually lifting
