I have a short list of main goals I want to accomplish in all areas of my life during 2016
- Run uninjured
- Foam Roll
- Strength Train
- Listen to my body
- Take baby steps
- Pay off debts
- Work on personal relationships
These shouldn’t really be that hard right? Well that is just a general outline of what I actually want.
For example, I still want to run a marathon. I feel like I can if I do things right. I am looking toward September, I feel that I can make it happen by then. That would put me at needing to start a training plan by May or so. To me that sounds feasible. That gives me 5 months to get up and around to a good base. Nothing too extreme, just one month at a time.
I like plans, I don’t do well without them. I don’t like unexpected things AT ALL! Seriously, no surprises or I will go completely nuts. Don’t change my running plans, just give me a daily checklist of what I need to accomplish and I am good to go! Hell, I still have a paper calendar, I need it in my life for this reason.
Speaking of plans. I have made a small plan in order to get back to running. I just started working out again on Monday. Monday night I did an Insanity workout which was a little uncomfortable. I haven’t done anything in so long my muscles were not excited about it at all. Naturally I assumed I would be sore yesterday. Which held mostly true. Today is a different story!
Last night I went for my FIRST RUN since November!!! OMGracious! It was amazing and wonderful and cold, I loved it!! Now I know I sound excited so you would think it was some huge run…no no no, not at all. I ran 1 mile. Yep, one! I ran it slow…very slow.
|Slow but not injured!
I know this post has been somewhat…random. But I will finish with this. DOMS suck! If you haven’t been working out, don’t do Insanity one day and run the next in 20° weather! It hurts….a lot!
Do you use paper or electronic calendars?
Race suggestion for this summer? I like to plan early!
