Short-Term Running Goals:

In the next 6 months I would like to feel fitter, look fitter, run faster, and not feel like an elephant plodding along. I would like to improve my 5K times, and run a marathon in October. Goal for the marathon is 4:30. Not sure if this is possible....

Long-Term Running Goals:

Let's just get through the summer, then we can talk about long term running goals!

Personal:

Trying to get in shape through running. Not sure I enjoy it -- I feel it too much, I am too loud running.. it is not graceful. Not pretty. I have had some euphoric moments running, like when listening to Bon Jovi (I know...I know) or Tina Turner (you're simply the best!!) but these moments are not that often. I love how I feel after accomplishing a run.

I love the treadmill.... Love my ipod... blink 182 (are you feelin' this..) and a whole mish mash of other tunes that get me moving. I want to be better, faster, more graceful... and more accountable- therefore I am here.

ran 7 on my own, after 3 the day before felt good.   I think the ankle is okay....   I miss running, and wish I was where I was end of summer- but i am not... I had to take 2 full very full weeks off becuase of the compacted liganments in my right ankle.  

I just want to be fit... I don;t want to stop. and I want to have a strong marathon where I have a PR.   Even with the 2 weeks off, this is the most I have trained.   I just want to be in the 4:00s.  Like 4:50 would leave me feeling elated.   We will see.  

 

Talk soon.
