(now on with the blog post...)
4 more days in 2009.
This year, I raced:
2 full marathons
2 half marathons
And my training mileage? Let's say it's not NEARLY in the ballpark of where it should be for having run 2 full marathons this year. (daily mile to the right isn't correct, I did, at least, run more than 370 miles!)
I'm not one for excuses but this time I'll cut myself some slack by pulling the "getting used to a new baby AND two year old, work, and college full time" card.
This excuse expires at 11:59 p.m. on December 31st, 2009.
I am in total awe of people who train for ultra marathons. My friend Tara is currently training for the Rocky Racoon 100 mile race in February. 100 miles in one race. I can't wrap my mind around that idea, nevermind around the fact that she is currently running 90 mile training weeks, while taking care of her kids. While I don't aspire to run a 90 mile week, nevermind an ultra, anytime soon (I won't say never, those ladies are awfully inspiring and their insanity tends to wear off on others...), I would like to increase my mileage in 2010 to be, if nothing else, more consistant.
In a previous post, I made my resolution to take 2010 in stride when it comes to my running, and enjoy whatever challenges are thrown my way without burning myself out. And that resolution still stands, and can still stand while I reach for some super fun goals. So here they are!
Goal A (the reasonable, attainable goal): 2010 km (that's 1248.96 miles) in 2010
Goal B (still attainable, but don't kill myself trying goal) 2010 miles (that's still 2010 miles) in 2010
- GET IN THE POOL!! (sent my email!)
-GET ON THE BIKE!!
-exceed my goal of raising $1,000 for the Ulman Cancer Fund through TEAM FIGHT!
So, to sum up the 2010 goals.... TRAIN, Heather, TRAIN!!
Anyone want to share their total mileage for 2009 (as of today?)
