Running & Fitness Goals!

Here’s the deal. Not much is changing as far as running goes. I’m still chasing a sub 20:00 5k, a sub 1:30 half and a Boston Qualifying marathon. These can take the next several years to complete (if ever). I’m hoping sooner than later, but these are very large goals, and as long as i keep chipping off time and running happy i’m doing the right thing!

I’m going to put it out there that i’m still unsure if i’m going to gun for the marathon this year. I’m going to start with a few halfs and see how I feel, but i want your suggestions! I’m open to travel for it 😉

Another goal is to complete the Spartan Beast, my first ever obstacle course race. As I complete my running goals, or when I need a break from the difficult marathon training schedule, i want other types of racing to be there for me. Triathalons, obstacle course racing, etc are all on the table!

Staying injury free is also a huge goal of mine this year. I’m tired of being sidelined for 6+ weeks due to dumb overuse injuries. That means  a lot more time with foam rollers, more yoga and cross training!

Home Goals!

These are kind of boring, but when i come back and re-read this post it will help me stay on track!

At home i want to finally get my office set up and make set times in the evening to blog. It’s really easy to sit at a computer for hours and hours to work on a post or just read the entire internet. If I set aside time a few days a week, i can bust out a good post and not spend excess time on the laptop.

my messy office/workout space

LE is such a great learner and a big goal of mine this spring/summer is to build up her mileage so she will be able to join me on easy runs.  I need to train her to walk properly next to me so when we start running it will be an easy transition. One of my clients is a dog agility coach and he’s constantly giving me tips!

Travel Goals!

I have a trip planned for Colorado in May with family & friends (I CAN’T WAIT!) and I’ll be heading back to Chicago for a visit this summer–Chicago in July is always amazing! Hopefully in the fall I can squeeze in a beach trip where it’s warm. I want the beach. I think i wore a bathing suit once last year <—That’s sad.

I always try to visit new places in the local area and I’ve been dying to camp and hike in Shenandoah (VA) and I heard about some cool places in Northern Maryland for hiking as well.

I’m heading out for an easy 6 mile run today. The weather finally decided being in the teens just wasn’t cool. High of 40 today and no wind which equals perfect day to run!

What does your workout look like today?
