              I am very interested in the 'real' answer to your question too.

               

                That's some remarkable consistency.

                  Sounds fishy to me.

                    It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                      I have no idea why March is skipped.  It could be a bug in the graphing software.  I'll look into it this fall when I redo the training log.

                        Okay, I've got a more boring, geeky answer, based solely on my trial and error, plus speculation.

                         

                        The software determines the number of pixels required to display the x-axis labels.  If the labels require more pixels than are are allocated in the graph's space, it cuts out some labels, attempting to distribute the remaining ones as evenly as possible.  It just happens to cut out every 12th one in your example, but here are others:

                        It might be the Ides of Fish or something, though.

                        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
