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.

Hubby and baby didn't sleep well last night, so I used it as an excuse to not get up this morning. I regretted it as I slugged out the miles on the TM at the gym. 

I was short on time when I got to the gym so I only got 5.5 in before FIT class (AP: 8:43), then I went to class and Jen was the sub today. Oh man alive her classes are brutal! Did more arm work than leg work which was welcome today, but I'm not sure washing and brushing my hair will be all that easy tomorrow.

I wanted to do at least 6 miles and I had 5 min after class before day care pick up, so I jumped on a TM and did one (yes, just one) yasso 800. I wanted to see if I even felt like it was possible to run 8 at a 7mm pace (a 3:30 predictor time), honestly it wasn't all that bad and even pulled the speed down a couple times on the last 1/4 mile. On a good day I might be able to pull that off on the track. Tomorrow the BBK's are meeting for speed work, the race is literally on now...6 weeks to SGM and if I want it I gotta start believing it and pushing myself and NOT listening to my whining self. I can and will.

I'll brush your hair for you. What are BFF's for?

You will totally do it!! I can't believe you ran a marathon on Saturday and you ran today without even mentioning it!

Burt, aww thanks!

Carina, remember, it was a nice slow and easy marathon. Fun, not hard :)

I always say, if you only have time for one 800 you might as well make it a YASSO 800...
