Here's a table that represents my training frequency over the past three years (roughly from two-stripe blue belt to the present).
In my best training year (Aug 2009 - July 2010), I trained 162 times, averaging more than 3 times a week and 13.5 times a month.
It's funny to think of that as my best year when I break it down like that. I'd like to believe that training 15 times a month (essentially "every other day") isn't an especially heavy training schedule - roughly a 3/4/4/4 four-week cycle. But it's interesting to see that even a basic schedule like that would easily top my best training year ever (15x/month = 180x/year).
So, setting out on my seventh year in jiu jitsu, training year 2012, consistency is going to be my number one goal. The track record of having at least two single-digit months suggests that I'm going to have to build that into the model. But if I can keep those to the high, single-digits - assuming they happen at all - then the possibility of topping my 2010 training year numbers remains strong.
There are a few other new jiu jitsu training year resolutions I'm making this week. But this one is at the top of the list.
