How is October over? 2012 feels like it flew by, just me? Here were my original goals:
Run a 5K under 27:30 (8:50 pace)27:21 June 23, Ignite 5K Have a baby. (hahaha)Just about 10 months old. Get down to my "happy weight"at 122 pounds. Done. clothes fit, now to toning those muscles! Biking speed averaging 18 mph.Destroyed at the tri. 18.8mph for 25 mile ride. Only faster from here! Do an olympic distance triathlon. no time goal although I would LIKE to break 3 hours. 2:55, placed in age group - goal crushed.
- Complete my marathon in under 4:30. I am hopeful. I know I could absolutely do this if my feet were 100%. They are not, unfortunately, so I'm going to do the best I can and see what the clock shows when I'm done.
- Find another 10K and break 58 minutes. not a goal for me until my feet are healed.
800700 miles for the year. Ran just under 83 miles for the month of October which is really incredible for how little I ran since my feet are bothering me. I feel like I've barely run at all! I'm at 666 miles for 2012 so far (hope that's not a bad omen). I'll for sure make my 700 mile goal, and then it's rest and recovery after that so I may not go above that much more this year.
This year has had it's ups and downs for sure. Had a baby (yay!), moved and left all my friends (sad), lost the baby weight, trained for 2 5K's, a triathlon, and a marathon (yay), and got an injury (sad). I'm looking forward to 2013 and hopefully making it an injury free year!
