A story of going from being a non-runner to planning for a marathon in three years...

December Wrap-Up


Source


Due to a series of events I missed my opportunity to run my last run of 2010 outside. I'm a little bummed about that but I made up for it by doing 2x800 and 2x400 on the treadmill at the gym AFTER doing some strength training and BEFORE doing some ab work.

I started my treadmill workout with a .5 mile warm-up at 6.0 MPH then did half a mile at 8:00 min/mile pace, followed by another half mile at 6.0 MPH and then another half mile at 8:00 min/mile pace. Then I switched to 400s and did .25 miles at 6.0, .25 at 7:30 min/mile pace, .25 at 6.0, and .25 at 7:30. All that added up to 3 miles.

Which means that even though I felt like a total slacker for all of December, I ended up running a total of 51.96 miles!

Like November, December was sort of a "blah" month in terms of running. However, I did manage to finally join the running group for a Saturday morning run and I ran in a snowstorm so I suppose there were some highlights.

I'm looking forward to 2011 (already signed up for three races!) but first I need to do my year in review post and come up with a few resolutions. Do you do resolutions or goals for the new year?

Happy New Year! I do more goals for 2011, and the few resolutions are more like "be nice to other people"... something that you never completely accomplish, rather a behavior to build daily. Goals are the "run a marathon" or "learn to cook like an iron chef."

Think about Thursday night track runs at holly's for 2011. I miss my rabbit!
