Well.. since then I haven't done any yoga, have only done strength training once and a couple of workout videos. Last week was the first time I ran more than twice, so clearly I don't have any great progress to share. But that's okay, I'm not mad. I'm focusing on just enjoying running right now, with no pressure.
Last week I ran 4 times, nothing crazy just a couple miles each day. I didn't want to get up yesterday morning, thankfully KC
So with zero pressure, not getting too ahead of myself... I want to run the triple crown (hopefully work will pay for it, what what) which is 3 races (5k, 10k and 10 miles). They are in March, every other weekend, and then a couple weeks after is the Derby 'mini' marathon. I thought it would be fun to do a race every month but KC quickly dismissed that idea, way too expensive. But, normally with all my races at the start of the year, I fizzle out towards the middle and end so I want to try and find at least one race each season. Anyway, I'm getting ahead of myself.
For now, I would like to just throw out what I think are very reasonable goals for next year. They aren't anything crazy, those PRs are all from 2012, almost 3 years ago (jeepers) and I'm not in the same shape. So we'll see. They are just my goals right now.
Goal: under 30 minutes.
Goal: under 60 minutes.
Goal: less than an hour and 30 minutes.
Goal: Less than 2 hours.
To work towards these goals, I am focusing on running 3-5 times per week (heard that before). So far so good. This week will be a true test, with having Thursday and Friday off and Thursday being the holiday of all the food. After that, I'll follow a proper plan with speed work and all that jazz.
On top of that, I know strength training is where it's at, both to lose weight and to help with my running. Twice a week for that right now, one lower body and one upper body.
On top of that, I need to get back into yoga - it feels so good and I really enjoy it, just need to make myself do it. I am going to start Erin Motz's original 30 day challenge again. I did it before, but all over the place, so this time I want to concentrate on doing it every day, or at least not taking too many days off.
Anyway, as I'm sure you've noticed, I often talk about what I want to do and all these goals and how I am going to achieve them, but I never actually do. All talk, I am. I feel like I say the same thing eah time, and it never changes because I never do it. But not this time, I promise you, and myself. I will reach these goals. I'll check in next time to let you know cause I'm sure you're all dying to know, but it helps me to stay accountable. So I appreciate you letting me babble.
Right? The time will pass anyway, may as well make the most of it.
What are you working towards?
