I like to use this page to personally keep track of myself – at the start of 2018, I realized I hadn’t updated this page since early 2016 – so that was kind of embarrassing.
I read through my goals that I set for that time, and realized I’ve accomplished a lot in two years, but still have some work to do.
Things that have been accomplished:
A sub 2 hour half marathon >> Now I’m moving onto going sub 1:50.
A sub 50 minute 10k (that one really hurt)
A sub 25 minute 5k >> Personal best is currently 22:37. My first 5k was > 36 minutes.
Getting better with my finances (this continues to be a work in progress)
I’ve gotten a lot better with my own personal diet, both out of desire, and necessity – this too, is a work in progress
Things that still need to be done:
As I update this after 7 months of training for a 50k, my #1 goal is to just enjoy running again without a training plan
Blogging more consistently, or as I continue to enjoy it
I am still very much interested in doing a podcast, to accompany this blog, however I only want to do it if it’s a right fit
A sub 4:30 marathon – I’ve come close, but it just needs to be done. This was done as of June 2018. Now I’m interested in seeing if it is feasible to go sub 4?
One of the aspects I love about this blog is it allows a space on the internet to be very real, to discuss real nutrition issues, running, and other things related to that. I think something that’s really important is monitoring progress, or lack thereof – the ability to make change and grow isn’t something that happens overnight.
