New Year. More Miles.

Happy New Year! I can’t believe how fast 2014 flew by!

Last year, I made a few running and fitness goals. (Shown below)

  1. Run at least 2 Half-Marathons
  2. Run a Half-Marathon under 2 hours and 15 minutes
  3. Run over 200 Miles in 2014
  4. Eat clean, cut out processed food as much as possible.
  5. Give up Chocolate for one month. (This will be extremely hard, since I’m addicted)
  6. Bike 100 Miles in a MS Bike Tour
  7. Run a Marathon.

Unfortunately I was only able to complete one out of the eight.  I had a handful of setbacks in 2014 with running injuries and illnesses. Needless to say 2014 wasn’t my year for wellness.

But that’s okay. Because, now I’m able to stick to the goals I made in 2014 and complete them this year.

Without further to do, here’s my new personal fitness goals for 2015…

1. Run a Marathon
2. Bike 180 Miles for Children’s Miracle Networks. I must raise $450 before I can bike. Here is my fundraising page.
3. Run over 300 miles
4. Run at least two half-marathons
5. Strengthen shins and overall muscles

My main focus this year will be training for my first-ever marathon. I am planning to run 26.2 in the Fall.

So here’s to another wonderful year of health and fitness!

 

 

 

 

And the results are….

Shin splints. BAD shin splints. Basically the worst I’ve ever had. Since last night, I’ve had extreme pain in my right leg. So this morning I decided to go to the doctor’s. Two crutches later, I have physical therapy for me lined up and another doctors visit next week -_-
As of now, it’s a Netflix marathon on my couch with ice.

Have you ever been injured after a race? How did you heal?

Sunday RunDay

Wellllll, I am two days away from running my fourth half-marathon! (It’s so weird to think I’ve already ran three!)

Anywho, like I’ve said in previous posts, this training seasons has been rough.

Come Sunday, I know I won’t PR. It was my goal this year, to make it under 2:10, but I’ve made peace with myself that my body is not trained well enough.

All that matters is I cross the finish line on Sunday. It  just might be my worse half-marathon time ever, but I’ll have other races to make up for it(:

So here’s to finishing another 13.1 (hopefully without the pain of shin splints)

OH! And here’s to nice weather. Last year, I ran the same race in the pouring rain….yuck.

Sneak Peak Sunday

Welcome to the beginning of a new and wonderful week everyone! Can you believe January is almost over?

Which means….my February running schedule will be  up in a few days! Here’s a sneak peek….

I’ve decided with my monthly running schedules, I’ll be putting a quote at the bottom of each one. This quote begins with “Run like you’re falling madly in love” …why?
Because Valentine’s Day is this month duh!
…oh and my birthday(:
So in February for whatever you may  be training for…run for something or someone and love every moment of it!
