And then, in a slow, sauntering flash-bang, it was two thousand and thirteen. Damn. Now what? I’ve got no plan. I’m not training for anything. I’ve got no goals. I have absolutely nothing specific I want to accomplish. I don’t even know where this post is going to end up, but it’s starting here. Last [...]
This probably isn’t going to be the greatest reflection on my 2011 goals, but let’s just get down to it. The year is over. And then some. And I haven’t made any “resolutions” save for a resolution not to make any year-based goals for 2012. So, before we get to far in to 2012, I’m [...]
This probably isn’t going to be the greatest reflection on my 2011 goals, but let’s just get down to it. Mileage – Holy breaking the consistency, Batman! After nine solid months consistently above my targeted minimum 104.131456 targeted average for the 2011 kilometer challenge, the taper and recovery of my first marathon in over a year [...]
… and June, July, and August, too. So I slacked a bit on keeping track of goals through the summer. The first weekend of October seemed like as good a time as any to get back on the goal-seeking pony, so let’s see what’s up with my 2011 goals, eh? Mileage – The first five [...]
Yup, it’s once again two weeks in to the next month when I get my ass in gear to look back on the prior month and how I’m doing with my 2011 goals. But May was an awesome month, so it bears looking back on. So there. Prior Goals Mileage – May; 116 miles. Pretty [...]
Sometimes, it’s good to pick your race about 18 hours before the gun. We’d picked up a flier for The Great Kilted Run in Seattle either during the Tacoma City Marathon expo or during our epic search across every running store in the Tacoma area for a hydration backpack1, but had lost it in the [...]
I’m certainly not doing too hot on the whole “monthly reflection” of my 2011 goals thing, but two weeks in to May seems like it’s still a perfectly valid day to look back at April. I’ve been mulling April over a lot, for reasons that will become apparent, and I guess I’m ready to write [...]
Oh. Hell. Yes.
Yeah, I ran another half marathon today. And, yeah, I PRed again. It feels awesome. But enough about me . . .(for now).
When I set out in January to keep an eye on my goals, I had planned on doing it monthly. January, check, but February was pure chaos, so I’m using the close of March (out like a lamb, right?) to reflect on both months and the first 25% of 2011 coming to a close. For [...]
Setting goals is not practical if you don’t periodically review your progress and whether or not they are still appropriate. I just gave this speech to a customer yesterday and realized that it applies to me as well. So, one month in to the year, I’ve decided that it’s as good a time as any [...]
