So, I have majorly been slacking on my blog posts this week.
For that, I am terribly sorry.
Things have been a little nutzo at work!
Annnnnnd I’m getting ready for yet another vacation, so needless to say I am very behind.
Yes, I know, I take a LOT of vacations.
Working in the hospitality industry will do that to you.
A friend and I are driving down to San Diego for the weekend!
We are going to visit a few friends while we are there.
I’m pretty stoked!
Anyway, enough about me.
Last week, I talked about the importance of making SMART running goals.
I asked you to write down your SMART goals and email them to me.
And you didddddddddddd!
I was beyond stoked to get the number of responses that I did…
THANK YOU to those of you who took the time to share their goals.
Let’s go over them!
He writes, “Last year it was my first Half. Ill-prepared and without a plan, my goal was sub 2:00. I finished in 2:09:19. Went out too fast, and started crashing after mile 9. I have a training plan in place, and will follow it. Last year was my first full. I thought I was prepared, but a couple last minute changes in routine played a part in why I missed the mark, (even though I read countless articles telling me not to do just that). I ran a sub 2:00 first half of the race, but my feet failed me on the back half. I finished in 4:16:23. I have a training plan in place, and will follow it, (and not make any last minute changes).
Isn’t it motivating to see the goals of other people?
I know I am excited!

Help me run 20 meters without panicing
Just take it 1 minute at a time, or even 30 seconds at a time. Try running for a minute and walking for 5. You can do it!
Thank you for the shout out. Had a bit of a set-back (well, a major one), tore my calf muscle on Tuesday. My goals stay the same, although the May 1st Half Marathon will have to shift to a later date. Thanks for the inspiration.
OH NO!! I am so sorry to hear that. I hope you heal quickly!! Best of luck to you.
