New Year's Resolutions Related to Running? (Read 582 times)

    I hereby resolve to learn how to brew my own beer.  


    Don't tell me this isn't related to running.


      Stay healthy and consistent – no getting off track for a month or two like Aug & Sept 2012.

      Run 1,200 miles. 

      Run a HM in the fall.

        To train like I mean it.

        Runners run.

          Resolution sounds like I need to change....

          I don't want to change.


          I want to "do what I can do", and "enjoy what I do".

          I plan on another full Ironman in May.


          But, the "do what I can do" has been my resolution since 1999, and although what I can do today is different from what I could do in 1999, there hasn't been any change in my plans.

          2017 Goals:

          #1: Do what I can do (200+ training days, 200+ aerobic hours). 

          #2: Race shape (1/2 marathon, 2 half Ironmans, marathon)

          #3: Prepare for 2018

          100K or Bust

            No resolutons as such but I plan out each year with my race schedule, goal times, and what I need to run to get there. The biggest change for 2013, and this was made a while ago so not strictly speaking a New Year's resolution, is to run my first ultra. That's a big change for me because my normal race distances are 800m - 5K.

            2017 Goals: for races not to be exercises in futility

              After a couple of years of running without a purpose , what Nobby would call crap shooting, will try to stick to a plan, at least until April, when I plan to test the plan's effectiveness.
