2012 Goals! (and January too) (Read 702 times)

    Let's hear your yearly goals and your goals for this month!  Happy New Year!!!

    Live the Adventure. Enjoy the Journey. Be Kind. Have Faith!


    I fly.

      2200 for the year.

       

      I think I want 200 for the month, but I might have to settle on 175.  My legs are tired.  I'm sick.  I skipped 3 days of running.  I give up.  January is already going down the toilet.

      Bring it on.


      In it for the long run..

        I'm in a streak, and would like it to continue through the month.  No huge milage goals since we are in the middle of moving our house. Want to keep on pace for 1600 miles for the year.

         

        I am planning on running Flying Pig in May with my daughter for her first marathon.  I want to get through the training injury-free.

         

        Carry on!

        "It's not who wins the workout..."

          Yearly goals:

           

          • Have fun!!!
          • Get back into some sort of shape other than running - upper body fitness
          • no mileage goals this year, just get out and run whenever I can
          • Stick to my training plans for whatever races I decide to do
          • PR in at least 2 distances (first is the 10 miler in March, after that either the marathon or 5K)
          • BE MORE POSITIVE ABOUT EVERYTHING - Negativity seemed to be on a rampage in my life in 2011, so this year I'm trying to stay upbeat
          • Have fun!!!

          January goals:

           

          • Mileage:  No idea
          • Stick to my Master Run Coach plan in training for my 10 miler - plan is to not miss any of the workouts
          • 4 weeks of 20 pull up challenge
          • 4 weeks of 100 push up challenge

            I am jumping in here, hoping to run 1500 miles this year although I haven't done so for a couple of years now. Smile

             

            I'm not sure that I'll stay ahead of the bunny for the first few months, but I'm not going to let that stop me! (One of my goals is not to obsess on mileage.) This is my first winter running with no treadmill access, so my main goals are to stay consistent through January/February, and to hopefully get out there at least 4 times a week.

             

            This morning I ran before work, when it was 14 (and dark) so I'm off to a good start.

              I have no idea what my yearly mileage goal is--last year, thought it was 1,000, ended up hitting 1,500.  I'm just going to run and see where I go.  Tentatively, I should hit 2,000+ miles pretty easily unless I get hurt (*fingers crossed*). 

               

              I plan to run every day that I feel all right to run, which I've been doing for a while (60 days and counting), which might turn into a running streak.  My marathon training plan has no rest days.

               

              I'm looking to take 20+ minutes off my marathon PR this spring (I've only been running <8 months--ran my first marathon in November, so natural progress might do it).  In a perfect world, I will attempt to BQ next November.  First goal marathon is the Flying Pig.  Doing the ORRRC marathon as a training/tune-up.  Not sure what one I'll do in November yet.

               

              I'm planning on running my first ultras this year--two 50ks, one 50 miler.

               

              2012 looks to be a great year!

              "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem." 
              Emil Zatopek

                For the year I would like to stretch my streak out (currently at 6 months straight) and not miss any days (doing at least 1 mile per day) and break 1500 miles again. Starting in mid-February, once my daughter's finished with indoor track, we're going to get going on the master run coach program to prepare her for some college running. I'd also like to get some lower body strength back and have cut back the running a bunch lately to facilitate that. I hope to get to a decently maintainable level by mid-Feb.

                 

                For january the goal each week is just to get a 9-10 miler, a couple faster workouts, and fill in the rest of the days with easy running. The 20 pullup challenge sounds like fun too. I'll start that tomorrow. I haven't had much motivation for stuff like that lately...


                Beware, batbear...

                  I am trying to stay well so I'm not going to try to streak at all for another month or two.  My goals for January are to hit 20+ miles each week with a couple of 9 milers in there.

                   

                  1.  2012 -- 1500+ miles.

                  2.  Streak starting in March or April if I'm healed.

                  3.  100 Push up challenge to get some upper body strength back.

                  4.  Get weight under 180 by the end of the summer.  

                  5.  1 or fewer alcoholic drinks 4+ nights per week every week.

                  6.  Concentrate on 5K distance and September HM.

                  7.  Have fun!

                  2014 Goal -- Run 5X per week, pain-free (relatively) by end of summer.

                            I really haven't made any 2012 goals yet, or January goals for that matter (little late on that one anyway)...

                             

                            ...but really I'm just posting this to put one more thread at the top above LedLincoln's I am sad thread. Smile

                              Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.


                              I fly.

                                2200 for the year.

                                 

                                I think I want 200 for the month, but I might have to settle on 175.  My legs are tired.  I'm sick.  I skipped 3 days of running.  I give up.  January is already going down the toilet.

                                 

                                1 month down. 201 miles done. Bring on February.

                                Bring it on.
