With the new year it is time for some new goals. Here is quick break down on how successful I was this last year and what my new goals for 2013 are.
Goals for 2012:
Run 2000 miles. That is approximately 41 miles per week. This is a VERY lofty goal. I am going to trust Daily Mile to keep me on track. The Garmin will be getting a workout!
Um, that didn't happen. I was even on track to not just run 2000 miles, but break it. Even to this day I feel like this goal jinxed my entire running year! As of yesterday my grand total was 1209 miles.
Finally get that six pack of abs! Jillian M: you and I will become great friends over the next 12 months.
Ha! This didn't happen either. However, I am much closer to this then I was a year ago. It might be feasible to accomplish this goal in 2013. Jillian and I did not become friends. Her videos were too repetitive and annoying for me. I need diversity in my core work! I was able to complete a 5:15 plank a couple of days ago which was a huge milestone for me.
PR in every distance (5K, 10K, 1/2 marathon and marathon).
5K- PR’d! My PR of 20:21 was from February at Partner’s in Pain
5 mile- PR of 33:12 was from the Rapid Rabbit in March
10K- Didn’t run this distance in 2012
12K- PR’d! I ran the Bloomsday 12K six days post Eugene in 54:18.
½ marathon- PR’d! My PR of 1:33 was at the Houston ½ Marathon in January. I think that Desi Davila rubbed off some of her speed on me for this race.
Marathon- No PR :/. I wasn’t that far off, I just needed to run 4 minutes faster.
Not too shabby for only having 4 months of training during the year of which I was seriously injured and didn’t even know it.
Be more diligent in lifting weights on my own, even if it is only once a week.
This is where I knocked it out of the ball park!!!! I probably wouldn’t have been so successful at this, but when you are injured and can’t run you tend to try out new things. Not only did I fall in love with lifting weights on my own 2-3 days a week, but I joined Farmgirlfit in October. I didn’t mind lifting on my own, but I tend to get distracted and I love how going to Farmgirlfit holds me accountable and really pushes me to test my limits. Since starting in October I have never had the same workout. Love it!
My goals for 2013:
Keeping it simple again, but adding some personal goals for the new year too. Hopefully none of these goals jinx the next 12 months for me.
Run 2000 miles. I am going to take another crack at this goal. I know that I am capable of it, I just need to stay healthy and in one piece.
Bike 1000 miles. This seems like a lot of miles, however, I think I can do it. I don’t really know what I am capable of so I am just going to go for it! If not at least I tried! Mr. Healthy Diva bought me a wireless bike computer that I can use on my spin bike so I will include those miles in my tally. Spinning counts, right? It might be another couple of months before I can take my new bike outside so spinning will have to suffice.
Train for at least 1 triathlon. This I am very excited about! I still haven’t selected one, but luckily there is a lot that take place in Spokane. I might even do one in Seattle with my college bestie Adrienne! I think she just wants to do a triathlon with me so that she can kick my bum in the swim.
Compete in a crossfit competition or two or three. I know that marathon training will have to come first and I will only be able to go to Farmgirlfit two times a week, but I love the aspect of it. I already have registered for a competition that will take place on January 13th.
Get my marathon PR that I have been dreaming about all year. I don't even care if it is by 1 second. I want that PR.
Continue my progress on the elusive six pack. I think that I am getting closer, but it has been hard work! I want to continue adding 15-20 minutes of core work into my routine at least 5 days a week.
Have a professional revamp of Healthy Diva and sign up for self hosting. I have already started to collect estimates on this fun project. I can’t wait to see a new look for Healthy Diva!
Once a month have a date night that doesn't include just a quick dinner at Qdoba.
Read at least a book a month.
Really make a dent in paying of our debt. I would like to have my credit card paid off by this summer. With that I would also like to save more $$$ so that we can finally move into our dream home.
Questions for you:
