2013 Running Goals
1. First and foremost 26.2 under 4 hours--enough said
-I did end up running another marathon that I received free entry into. My goal was to run smart and listen to my body which I did. I also finished in my second fastest time (4:31:43) so I can't complain about that. I will have to try for sub 4 another day....
2. Achieve a second sub 1:50 half marathon so I can remove the asterick from my current sub 1:50 PR
-I wasn't planning to run any 1/2's this month but it worked out with Kaelynn's skating schedule that I could run the Fall Classic with some of my Sunday morning girls. I didn't run a PR but I did run with Emily for the first 11.5 miles to help her achieve her goal time of 1:55. I am thrilled to report that she finished in 1:53 and I was just behind her in about 1:54. It was so cold that we have zero pictures from the event! I'm pretty sure I won't be running a 1/2 in December so I'm thinking I won't be chasing that sub 1:50 until sometime in the future.
2013 Mini Running Challenges
1. Run 100 miles per month
-70.4 miles run in November....oops!!
2. Run 1300 miles for the year
-41.49 miles to go to complete this challenge. Definitely possible to achieve by year end.
2013 Non-Running Mini Challenges
1. Cross-train at least twice a week
-Partial success and partial fail. I did successfully complete the November Triceps Challenge. I didn't do any other cross-training during the month though.
|I didn't pick a challenge for December yet and it's already the 3rd...oops!|
2. Complete a jump rope workout every day
-Not a single jump rope workout completed. And...the trend continues...
3. Drink 50 ounces of water per day (based on my current weight, this is my daily water intake need)
-Done and done well.
4. Take my vitamins daily
-Vitamin taken all but one day in November. Pretty sure I forgot the day I ran the "unplanned" marathon....go figure!
5. Continue to choose and cook healthier foods
-14 meals made in November . I am very pleased with this one!
6. Learn to swim...better luck this year
-What's this swimming you speak of......
Overall I am happy with November and look forward to seeing what is in store during this last month of the year.
