It's halfway through the year, so it's time to do a quick check in on my 2014 goals!
Marathon PR. I'm not going to sign up for another marathon until my current training indicates that a sub-4 will be in my cards. I'm hoping that will be the case late this spring when I'm tentatively planning to register for marathon #7!
I'll take my one and only crack at a marathon PR in October!
Half Marathon PR. This spring I'm shooting for ~3 half marathon races. Since our weather can be incredibly fickle in the spring (and the fall, and the winter, and the summer....) I want to have options as to deciding what my A race is since I know that certain weather conditions destroy me. I have a lot of work to do to make this a reality over the next few months!
Not yet. Going to make an attempt in August in Fargo.
10k PR. There's a 10k in May and June that I'm planning on doing. If I'm in speedy shape, I would like to see this 3 year old (OMG) PR fall.
After the 4th of July race, I'm less than 90 seconds off!
Be in L-O-V-E love with running.
Run and race with friends.
Yay! Jenn J and I have been running together and race planning, and I have a race weekend planned with Jenn and Megan!
Make some new running friends to add to the group.
Working on it!
Run with speedier, intimidating folks to force me to run harder (Jacqueline, this means I will hopefully finally take you up on your long run offers!)
Jenn is speedier so it's helpful to run speedwork with her!
Run a 200 mile month.
Ha. Not even close. September might be the month.
Hit a 50 mile training week while not in marathon training. (I'd like to try higher mileage training for my spring halfs, as long as my body is up for it!)
Well, my body wasn't up for it.
Run a 60 mile week, either in training or not.
And I'm peaking at 52-55 for the marathon, so nope!
Do a month long run streak.This summer before marathon training starts? Next November? December? Hmm...
I did one massage so far. I definitely need to plan for some as my mileage builds!
Do hip stretches and exercises on the reg.
Eat healthier. Cook more. Bulk up the delicious recipe stash.
Bike another half century.
Might do an unofficial one this summer.
Continue with stuff OTHER THAN running (ie: strength training, fitness videos, yoga, etc.)
Do abwork year round, not just in the summer when abs make an appearance.
Make 100 pushups/day, every other day, a "thing" not just a one time thing. (I did this on my birthday as it was on my 101 in 1001 list. It felt pretty good and Kyle did it with me!) Caveat: They were girl pushups, but I'd definitely like to work up to ALL regular pushups. It'll take some work though. My girl Jillian has helped over the past month. I wouldn't have been able to do 100 girl ones without doing the 30 day shred, that's for sure. Captain of the T Rex arms team over here!
