Run… actually run an entire 5K. I think I’ll do the Race for the Cure again this year. (I should probably look up the date… Okay, it’s May 8, 2011). That doesn’t give me a lot of time to get up to running the whole thing, but spring is coming and the days are getting longer so I may get out of the office while it is still daylight. If I can’t run the entire 5K during that race, then I will sign up for another one.
Complete the Coast to Coast Challenge. I will hopefully be signing up for the Disneyland Half Marathon soon. I’ve been keeping my eye on the registration level and I will be signing by the Princess expo, if not sooner if the registration levels jump significantly. I will also have a free Southwest Air flight after this next trip to WDW so I will be using that to get out there. I’m not sure yet where I will be staying, but I’m working on that too.
Run the Wine & Dine half marathon. With a better time then last year. That shouldn’t be too difficult since it was my worst half time ever, but I still plan on being well trained for that one.
Train for the WDW 2012 Half Marathon. I haven’t completely ruled out the idea of a the Goofy Challenge, but since registration hasn’t opened yet. I don’t need to address it right now.
Complete a 5K in less than my age. Yup, I said it. I won’t say my age, but I will say that if I accomplish this goal, it will be my fastest 5K ever. EVER.
My non-running goals include:
Biking to work. There is a nice bike/jogging trail that basically goes from my house to my office. I plan on taking advantage of it and riding my bike to the office. My boyfriend rode his bike most days last year, so I will be able to join him for the first half of his ride. I just need to get a tune up for my bike…
Practice pilates. I love pilates. I loved pilates before pilates was popular. I have VHS and DVD workouts that I can do at home and there is a class offered at my gym. I have plenty of opportunities available, I just need to take advantage of them.
Lift weights. Well, duh. If I can build up my lean muscle then I can increase my overall fitness and health.
Watch what I eat. I signed up for Weight Watchers, but I haven’t even stepped on the scale since I signed up. And I already fell off the wagon last week. It was hectic, really hectic, at work and I found myself eating more junk than I had been the previous weeks. I will
make an effort to stick the the plan!
So what do you think about my goals. I’ll probably add more in future posts as I meet these goals, or as I think of new ones. I’ll definitely be revisiting this post throughout the year though!
