I am always late.
It is not a good combination.
14 days into 2013 and I am ready to list my running goals for the year out there for all the interwebs to see.
It's not rocket science, but it is helpful to write them down so I can keep reminding myself that I have the goals that I want to achieve.
I am now in my 3rd week of training for the Tobacco Road half marathon and I think I am off to a good start. I have been trying to add a fourth day of running to my usual 3. With that and some weight training I am slowly starting to see some improvement. This past weekend my long run was a 6 miler on a local bike path. As a runner who is consistently within the 11 min/mile range I was psyched to see these splits.
These are some speedy miles from me. Although I think having to stop at some intersections was partly responsible, I know that I was running pretty well and feeling good. It is nice to see some progress in the numbers.
I am hoping that, by sticking to my goals and training hard and smart, I might see something less than 2:34 on the clock when I cross the finish line in March.
