Post Your Small, or Big, Victory For The Day! (Read 5582 times)


old woman w/ hobby

    Today's run puts me at 651 miles this year.

    My goal was 600, stretch goal 650.

    Small victory compared to a lot of mileage around here, but I'm happy!

    Here's to a higher target and total next year!

     Very good and congratulations to you Meg!

          I ran a two miler today. It was my first run after a few weeks off for surgery. If I can squeeze out a 5 miler tomorrow I can hit a nice round number for 2011. I hope everyone is ready for a fantastic 2012!

            now time to start stringing a few of those together!

              so my big victory of the day is sort of a reverse victory.   I am NOT going to beat the pace bunny this year.  whoo hoo for me!   the reason that this is a victory is that it shows that I have been able to "control" my obsession of numbers.  In my training for Nov marathon (dns) I became obsessed with hitting certain #'s-weekly & monthly miles, 2000 yrly miles, 3 hr training runs etc.etc.   this obsession lead to breakdown (dreaded PF) 2 mths out from goal marathon.  I came close to beating the bunny & could have done so but at risk of hampering recovery. Focus last few mths has been on going easier & have full recovery from PF (at about 80 % right now) to  start out 2012 with a more balanced plan.   Does this make sense to anyone??  anybody relate to this??

                By the hair of my chinny chin chin, I just logged my 1000th mile.   It was just a few weeks ago that I had 77 miles to go, and just decided to go for it.  It wasn't pretty, but I did it. I have not done this in about 4 years.   Next year, I plan to be ahead of the bunny, and not just finishing on the last day of the year!!!!

                   Smart move. A lesson most of us need to learn.

                      Finished up the year with an awesome progression run.  6 miles at my steady pace of ~8:30, then 1 mile fast but controlled in 6:50.

                       

                      This run was my first 7-miler, my first run over an hour in length, and ended my first 100-mile month.  Here's to an exciting 2012!

                      I ran. I ran until my muscles burned and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

                       

                       

                      Future Goals: 5:30 mile • 19:30 5k • 33:30 8k • 42:00 10k • 1:15:00 10-mile • 1:40:00 half-marathon • 1000 miles

                            A victorious year in terms of running, and a victorious day in terms of creativity. Managed to come back pretty far this year, despite 7 weeks of missed running and aerobic system killing high-stress due to illness and death in the family. Won two age-group trophies including a first place (which means I entered an alternate universe this year) . Today, after much planning and hard work,  I launched a new running, athlete oriented comic strip. I wish everyone here at RA the best of years. And if 2012 is indeed the year of the apocalypse, then go out in a blaze of athletic, creative, and loving glory! Cool
