Short-Term Running Goals:

Okay, so for 2013 I am going to have FUN! Not that running isn't always fun, but I had a wonderful breakthrough year last year and I want to play this year :) AND get faster! So, my first goal I'm going to put out there is my yearly mileage goal.
It is 2,186 miles from my driveway to my sister (QP's) driveway! I want to spend this year on a virtual trek cross country running those miles. So, that is how far I will run in 2013...from my house to QPs. It will take all year and yes, this is measured on Hwys so it isn't really exactly how I COULD run it, but good enough. 43 miles/week...totally doable, and a fun goal to track how far I've traveled as I go along. Who knows...maybe I'll even run PAST her house :)

I will do more trail runs, Boston, Pacing duties, another Half IM and some other tris. I'm excited for this next year and look forward to having fun with all of you out on the roads, and trails! Maybe bag a few peaks this year too!!

Long-Term Running Goals:


Big Dreams: 5K in 20:2X; 10K in 39:XX; Half in 1:29:XX; Full in 3:15:XX; complete the Rim2Rim2Rim run and not die; Comrades; Iron(wo)Man.

Run for the rest of my life!

Personal:

4 children: twelve, eight, five and baby Fartlek - 2 1/2. Wonderful supportive husband that lets me drag him and the family all over for race after race!

Finished 13 marathons and LOVE running that distance! I'm definitely hooked to the marathon monster and hope to constantly improve my endurance, speed and stay injury free!

I've also found a love of trail running! I hope to keep improving on this front.

After being injured with a broken foot at the first of 2012 I found a tri group and started training with them and am now loving tris! The half IM was harder than I'd ever imagined...and am ready to do it again. I'll earn my bike butt and someday have enough time to train for a full IM.

Sleep in and TM miles today again. I've gotten too used to sleeping in and I don't like the cold - I'm afraid of it, so I'm hitting the gym.

4.0 miles AP: 8:42 - 8:57 for the first 3 miles, then 7:54 for the last mile (progressive last 1/4 finish).

20 min arm circuit. All major arm/shoulder muscles 3X with a plank to end each set.

4.0 miles AP: 8:38 1@8:57, 2@8:49, finish with 7:48 (same progressive last 1/4 finish, but did the first .75 @ 7:53, not 8:00 even).

Trying something new - no superfeet in my shoes, it seems to help the plantar feel better. We'll re evaluate after a week.

Trying to get more sub 8 miles in, gotta get my legs used to running fast(er) when tired. If I want to increase my speed I need to make a consistent effort to run faster, not just race faster.

Devine - nice work, back in the saddle, by the way, had a good running friend of mine drop out at STG at mile 19, it was a darn tough day.

Nice workout! It is always good to split the runs up like that because the 2nd round is always so mentally tough. :)

Nice job Rachel. You need your sleep.

Brent, yeah I think I've heard more horror stories than success stories!

Rachelle, yes it is! I need some mental strength

Nancy, I'm a sleep hog! :)
