So we are a few days into 2016 now. I’m not doing new years resolutions, I don’t see the point – resolving to stop eating unhealthy crap isn’t going to pan out when i’ve still got several boxes of chocolate and bags of crisps lying around the house from Christmas. Besides, i’m already living a way more healthy lifestyle than I was this time last year (go me)!
I have been thinking of setting some running goals though. I like to have running goals to work towards and keep me motivated. Even if you don’t manage to hit them, you can have fun trying. My goal last year was to run the half marathon, and as my regular readers will be aware that didn’t quite happen (read about it here – boo – but I did still have fun trying)! So it seems only right to carry that goal over to 2016. I’m not giving up on it – and it never really had a time limit in the first place. I just figured since we entered the half marathon and trained for the half marathon we’d have actually ran a half marathon! Damn you lightening storm!!
My other goal for 2016 (besides running the half marathon) is to improve my times running the smaller distances. By the end of the year i’d like to have run a sub-30 5k, and i’d like to have run a sub 1:05 10k. Really i’d love to run a sub 1 hour 10k but this may not be quite so realistic. You never know though – if I continue to work on my running anything is possible.
And the main goal: just keep running! Just keep going, keep staying active, keep lacing up the trainers and getting outside whether its to walk or run or skip or dance! Just keep at it!
