How are we a week into 2014 already? Crazy. Hope everyone is having a good first week. I am slowly getting knocked down by a nasty cold but I’m loading up with vitamins and sleep and hoping it passes without a sick day(s).
I promised 2014 goals/resolutions and here they are! The word ‘resolution’ is a dirty word for some and I don’t dispute that, but I like to start every year with a few goals for the year. While I’ve had a bad couple of years with resolutions and have definitely learned a few goal setting lessons, I can’t forget that one big fat resolution in 2010 changed my life for the better. So here we go!
- PB in the 30K! I had an absolutely AWFUL race in the Hammer last year for my 30K debut due to a lot of things, the main one being undertraining. I’m determined to go back to that race and enjoy it. Even if I don’t PB, if I don’t want to cry or yell at the end of it, I’ll consider that a win.
- Get up to a lifetime total of 15 – 20 half-marathons by my 30th birthday. I keep hemming and hawing over whether 20 is too ambitious, so I’m calling 15 my low goal and 20 my stretch goal. I’ve got until September, don’t I?
- Cook more and eat less take out. I’m working on this one with my better half. Fingers crossed.
- Cook at least one recipe from every cookbook I own. I tried this last year and failed miserably so I’m giving her a go again. Persistence pays off sometimes right?
Are you pro-Resolution? Have you set any goals for 2014?
