Christmas Day run in shorts! It's been a little colder since then. I feel like my running has been a bit all over the place. Working more hours than usual the last month, good but harder to fit all my miles in then thinking I would have so much time to run last week with 3 days off work but asking someone to watch Gretchen so I could go on a 4+ hour run felt wrong. Had a couple good runs from my parents house to Warrensburg and back and somehow managed to get up at 5am one day and run a solid 17 miles on the treadmill.
Had a few good runs with a little snow pre Christmas.
Egg Nog makes a great coffee creamer substitute, just saying.
Christmas Present, It is a Running Journal by Lauren Fleshman, a pro runner. I'm pumped about filling it out and it is full of inspirational running quotes. Nothing I love more than a good quote.
Getting to it I started my New Year's Day with 13 miles at Wallace State Park in Cameron, MO at a Fat Ass run. It was a warm 18˚ when we started. It was put on by this nice couple, they apparently do it every year. It was a 6 mile loop you could go as many times as you wanted. I went with a group and we did two loops. After we went to the couples house where they had soup and lots of cookies all for free. So nice! Once I got home I showed, napped then decided to drive out to WYCO park and finished the day with another 7 with the BAR group so good way to start it all off I think.
Calling it a win. So close to 2000 but not quite. Way more than last year though.
Last Year's Goals:
3 pull ups in a row --- Not a total fail I bought a pull up bar and can do a solid one
Run a 50 mile race --- Nailed it! Ran 2, won both
New Marathon PR --- Fail, didn't even try to run a marathon
Run without injuring myself --- Nailed it! Ran lots, no injuries
Only made fitness goals and decided to ignore the rest of my life because I didn't know what to do with that mess.
Fail or not fail I don't know. It's less of a mess but not where I want it to be.
This Year's Goals:
Run 100 mile race --- Planning on that happening Jan 31st-Feb 1st.
3 pull ups in a row --- I feel like getting to 1 pull up was a lot more work than getting to 3
New marathon PR --- Already signed up for Rock and Roll DC so unless I injure myself I should be good.
Run more races --- I've got a list going of races I'm thinking about, some I don't wanna sign up for till I see how this 100 miler goes
Blog more --- You know for all my fans(Hi mom!) haha
Still gonna just ignore the rest of my life, that seems to be working for me. kinda.
