Today is January 21, 2020. In December 2019, I wrote my goals, I wrote my action plan to meet those goals, and even figured out a few rewards along the way. A big part of my goal planning includes my running. My Running… Oh my running!!
I ran my first half marathon October 26, 2019. It was probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, it was such a big accomplishment to say that I said this goal and completed it. I continued running in November and some of December, but when the new year rolled around, my legs didn’t.
I had family in town for the Christmas holiday, my kids were out of school for one billion days, and once they went back, I felt like it took forever to get caught up from such a busy season.￼
Well today I went running! And I felt like I have never run in my life. I almost feel like I’m starting back at square one, but know I will make up the difference pretty quickly. I was very fortunate and blessed to have my mom buy my family a membership at the YMCA for one year! It wasn’t in our budget to pay for one this year so I was so grateful.
I am excited to see what my running season will look like this year. I plan to run 2 half marathons, my towns annual 10 mile race and I’d like to run a few 5ks. (I secretly want to do a triathlon but am afraid to say it out loud!)￼
I’d like to improve my 5k time and run it under 30 minutes and I’d like to have my half marathon time around 2:20 for the first and 2:15 for the second. Moving my legs today felt wonderful and was just the push I need to get back on track!
