Last year I did 2010 miles in 2010 and that kept me motivated so I knew I wanted to do something similar in 2011. When I looked back at my miles I noticed the months I was training I was close to 80 miles a month which is about what it takes to get in 1000 miles for the year. So first and foremost I am going for 1000 miles of running in the year 2011!
Which means I will need to have something to work towards so here is the plan:
Start the new year training for a full marathon (not registered yet); planning on Knoxville in April since it will back up to my Spring Break. (4/3/2011) or Virginia Beach on March 19th which would mean I should have started training a few weeks ago : ( I will be deciding very quickly! As in by midnight tonight!
Then I plan on running the Nashville Half Marathon with my mom and step dad! Mom just did her first 5K and my step dad has not ran a race yet but has lost around 100 lbs in the past couple years : ) (4/30/11)
I am sure I will do something during the summer but nothing is standing out to me yet. There are a blue million 5Ks that I like around here that I have done for the past 2 years so I am sure I will run a couple of those but I do know I will not run them all like I have done the past 2 years.
The fall is still in question. I know I have the Bourbon Chase coming up! (October 2011)
But I want to do a full! I like this:
and of course we all want to:
All of this should keep me plenty busy in the year 2011! I hope everyone has a great 2011 and has big plans on their calendar : )
