It’s the new year, and I’ve got some new running goals. First up, I had to update my running log. I’ve been running a lot on the treadmill, which means manual entry (rather than auto-entry from my Garmin). Today will make 2 years and 7 months on the streak. Crazy and I never thought I would go this long.
The treadmill is great because it allows me to run any time in any weather. But, it also makes me very lazy. I don’t actually like running on the treadmill, so I find myself just running the minimum for the streak. That is a habit I would like to break this year. My average running distance has slipped from 3 miles down to 2. To that end, a friend of mine has signed up for a half marathon and asked for a virtual running partner (virtual because she’s in another country), so I’ve agreed to run a half marathon “with” her. Luckily I found one here about a week after hers, so we are good to go!
After a less-than-enjoyable marathon, and a DNS (did not start) marathon, I am looking forward to training for “just” a half. I really find the half marathon distance to be much more fun, and the training to be soooo much more bearable.
So running longer distances, tracking better, and a half marathon. Those are my goals for running this year. What are yours?
