- Incorporate more speedwork into my schedule (at least 2 on most weeks)
- Stretch after runs (I think this will be my hardest goal, but without it I'm positive the BQ is sunk)
- Go sub 23 in a 5K (Garmin says I did on Saturday, but it's not official)
- Go sub 1:40 in the New Haven Road Race (20K)
- Run a sub 7 mile, during any race, training run, speedwork, etc.
- Go sub 35 in a 5 miler
- PR a half marathon (in other words: run a 1/2 faster than a split a full)
- Know why I am eating something before I put it in my mouth
- Incorporate a larger variety of healthy foods into dinners (My dinners are usually very healthy, but they consist of the same 3 meals repeated...)
Tonight I made KALE
I sauteed it with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, tomatoes, butternut squash and mushrooms. Eric had his with sausage and I had mine with chick peas. Definitely a successful meal!
- I would definitely like to lose weight this year, but I want it to be because I am consciously eating what my body needs to run well and be healthy. I don't want my focus to be on losing weight, but on gaining speed, strength, recovery and health. I want to eat like an athlete.
-I'd like to open up a 403b and start saving there
-Pay off credit card. I've never held a balance on the cc, but after the wedding and some unforeseen car expenses, I have a little bit on there. I'd like to be back to a 0 balance very soon.
- Work on organizing: my classroom, my house, my office area, my closet. This will definitely be the biggest challenge for me.
- Raise more than my minimum goal for Team in Training. My goal is 2,450, but personally, I'm shooting for more like $4,000. http://pages.teamintraining.org/ct/cmc11/cbrandom Right now I'm at about $1,100, so I think this is possible.
- Try some new things. First up: Cross Country Skiing
Well, that's all I thought of as of today. Good luck with all your goals. I've really enjoyed reading your posts!
