I Resolve

I’m not a fan of goal setting or resolutions when it comes to most things. But I am a fan of seeing progress and change, and 2016 did not show me a lot of progress when it came to running. And the change was NOT the good kind, ahem.

But I still had some fun, and that’s what really matters! Like the time I raced a Marine through Animal Kingdom.

So for 2016, I Resolve:

  • To run more. This doesn’t mean run longer or even sign up for more races. But just to run more often. 2 miles isn’t too much to fit in on pretty much any given day, so there’s no reason I can’t do more of those little runs.
  • To be more consistent in my pacing. I’ve always been all over the map when you look at my numbers. I’d really like to focus on running a steady pace for more than 3 miles.
  • To start working on those intervals. Remember when I could run a whole 5K without walk breaks? That was at least a kid ago. While I still believe in the Galloway method and intervals for long runs, I also believe it’s how I slowed way down. So I’m going to work on making the ratios a little longer on the run and a little shorter on the walk and see how that goes.
    I was searching for a new brand of running skirts. One that has deep pockets, built in shorts, and custom design options. I found the right brand for me in Sassy Sara Skirts! running | walking | Active wear | Plus Size | Regular Size
  • To find the joy in running again. When I’m out there with friends during a runDisney event, it’s THERE. But the training leading up to it? Nope. Gone. And I used to somewhat like those runs. So 2017 is the year I find that again.
  • I resolve to not take things too seriously, buttttt… maybe a little more seriously than I did this year. That shouldn’t be too hard, ha!

How about you? What are your 2017 running resolutions?

Great goals! One of mine for this year is to finish what I started in 2016 and get that first marathon checked off... 9 more days!

I love this link up! I have found and drawn on lots of inspiration from you Patty!

While I am sidelined for the time being (at least another 5 months before I can walk for exercise) I am promising that I spend the next 5 months working my weight as well as my mental/spiritual well when I can run again I can be there entirely in the run...mind, body and soul...#oneintervalatatime.

It sounds like your goals are right in line with mine. Just a little more than last year. Really I love this time of year a fresh start and new beginnings. We so can do just a little bit more right!

I think you are on the right track with your goals and finding the JOY is so important. I am certain you will find it again but in probably one of the most random weird ways- just roll with it chica! 2017 will be a great year for you!!! (my magic 8 ball told me so!)
