Tomorrow is the Matteson 5k that I'm very excited about. I'm going to try and break into the 22 minute category (last 5k was 23:03).
In the spirit of the new year, I've made a list of things accomplished in 2011 and goals for 2012. My mail goal for 2011 was to finish the Chicago Marathon. Things didn't workout as planned (which I've brought up a billion times), but I still got the medal!
Completed my first obstacle course race (Warrior Dash)
Attempted my 1st marathon (Chicago Marathon)
Finished my 1st marathon on the 2nd try (Grand Rapids Marathon)
Goals for 2012:
Complete my first trail race
Complete 12 races in 12 months
Finish a half marathon in under 2 hours
Complete a 5k in under 23 minutes (current PR is 23:03)
Run at least 650 miles for the year
Cross train with weights and cardio 4x per month
I think these goals are achievable and I plan on using Daily Mile to help keep track of the miles and cross training, along with Athlinks to keep track of the races.
In OTHER NEWS... Toph and I are officially registered for the Warrior Dash 2012! I'm so excited as this is the first race we will both be doing, ever. He's not into races so I'm excited for us to complete this together. Obviously, the plan is to run faster than him. :)
Have you written out your goals yet for 2012? How do you plan on keeping track of them?
