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!


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.

Sleeping in this week, I've got a crazy busy week - well, I have to jam 5 days of cleaning and responsibilities into 3, so it's going to be busy and I'm going to SLEEP.

60 min on the elliptical @ L15 - 5.30 miles

1.5 miles @ 8:23AP. Started at an 8:34 and oh, how wonderful it felt!! I had no problem/pain/limping and it didn't even feel fast. I can't wait to run 26 miles at Outer Banks! So, after 1.2 (which practically flew by) I upped the speed and ended at a 7:30 AP, still felt good.

Did some strengthening stuff since it's a 'rest' week in P90X (mostly yoga, kempo and cardio stuff - off week for resistance) and then did my PT stuff. Feeling good again. I think I'm going to slowly up my miles and make sure my leg will be happy with more miles this week...then I'll beat it to death at OBX :)

Elliptical for 60 min @ L15 5.65 miles (had to switch ellipticals in the middle, because someone keeps using MY elliptical at the gym. pshhh...don't they know that one is reserved for ME?)  :)

1 mile on the TM @ 8:20 AP, still felt good. I did have some tightness and soreness later in the evening though. 

Spent the rest of the time stretching and strengthening.

Core synergestics p90x at night. This is my favorite workout so far.

Busy day and climbing into bed at night was my favorite part of the day!

Boot camp at the gym, and then worked out my jaw jabbing away the last 20 minutes and so that's it!

Kempo tonight for p90X then I hope I can get something in tomorrow early morning.

Got to bed at 1:30 in the morning and when I woke up to go meet Kelli at the gym I was tired and had a headache (I seem to get these lately in the morning when I am sleep deprived). So, I ditched Kelli and made her run alone and just got up and ready to sit on a plane all day.

Baby did great on the plane(s) and I'm now here with QP and loving no responsibilites just playing with the little one and catching up on the blog I've neglected for some time now.
