2010 Goals

I've loved reading everyone's goals for the new year in running bloggyland so I thought I'd add mine to the mix. I was inspired by Tal Mom's and Aaron's very thorough goal lists...I'm not quite the high achiever I guess because I've decided on only 3 athletic goals for the year...They are as follows:

1. Run the LA Marathon
2. Run a sub 1.40 half marathon
3. Do 100 push-ups

These 3 goals seem attainable with the other life goals that I've been thinking about. I received a few running related items for Christmas that I'll blog about later this week. Tomorrow I have a 7 mile run scheduled with 6X100 strides. I have to admit, I enjoy doing lactate threshold miles much more than I do strides...But, I plan on trying to run my scheduled week to a "T" this week. (I haven't exactly done that the last few weeks because of traveling. I'm supposed to run 54 miles this week and I hope I can do that. My body feels fine since my 18 miler 2 days ago though. Although I was feeling knee pains yesterday that I don't usually feel,I'm thinking the glass is half full this week!


  1. I wish you the best of success with your goals for 2010. May you also remain injury free as well while doing them. Have fun on your run tomorrow. Go get em'!

  2. Great looking goals. I am praying for a pain free 54 mile week for ya. :)

  3. Thanks for the link love!! Yes I am ambitious this year, but I REALLY think it can happen and I am soo hopeful.

    Wow a sub 1:40 half, speedster, I need you to pace me..

  4. Those sound like great and very attainable goals. Hope you get them! I'm so jealous, LA Marathon sounds like a blast.

  5. you don't need a long list of goals to be successful! :) i think a short and sweet list is good - not too distracting and keeps you focused.

  6. I really like your simple list of goals because they really aren't EASY in the grand scheme of things. Especially when you have alittle one at home! Some days, it's just an accomplishment to get out the door(as I remember...a LONG time ago!). Good for you on running LA, you'll have a blast and I like your half-marathon goal time, go for it!! Nice visiting your blog!
