I don’t know about where you live, but around here it’s finally starting to feel a bit like spring and I’m planning on taking advantage of the great running weather before the heat and humidity move in!
Since I set some goals for myself at the start of the year, I thought it would be a good idea to check in on them every few months just to see where I am and make sure nothing’s getting neglected – so, here’s where I stand today with each of my 2013 goals!
2013 Goals & Growth
Run a Non-Disney Marathon
I’m registered for the Marine Corp Marathon in October! I’m interested in seeing my marathon time after doing speed work through the summer and not stopping to take pictures with characters!
Start Doing Speed Work
When I wrote this goal what I really meant was “break 2 hours in a half marathon”, but I figured speed work was how I was going to get there so I made the speed work my actual goal. Well, it looks like I peaked too soon because MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
This goal stays on my list though because more speed work can only make me faster! Maybe another PR attempt this fall in Disneyland??!
Run 800 Miles
As of yesterday I am at 188 miles for 2013 so far which means I have to average 68 miles a month for the rest of the year to reach my goal. Definitely do-able since I’ll be training for Dumbo, Marine Corp and Dopey! (I’m actually hoping to average more like 80-100 miles per month.)
My goal here was just to keep up with my regular yoga practice after finishing teacher training. I’ve been practicing 2-3 days a week, so doing well here! (Seeing how much yoga helps my running definitely motivates me to keep it up!)
Ummm….yeah. I have yet to swim or bike. This is probably my biggest reach goal for this year, but I do have my eye on a couple of sprint triathlons up on Cape Cod this summer, so we’ll see if this one happens.
Classes are going well so far and I’ve started my PT observation hours, so headed in the right direction! I do really need to get started studying for the GRE’s though!
Overall not a bad start, I’ll check in again in another few months!
Do you have any long term goals you are working on this year??
