I lied about not having goals for 2013.
It wasn’t a lie when I said that I’m in a much different place than I was 12 months ago. I’m truly content with my life. I have a great job, a great apartment, a great family, great friends and (gasp!) a great boyfriend. I feel like I‘ve found a balance.
|hey old friends|
The part that remains unbalanced, though, is my relationship with running. My training log for the past twelve months can only be described as consistently inconsistent. It shows several weeks where I would run regularly before getting injured and taking a break. Most of those breaks were complete breaks (i.e. no workouts whatsoever) meaning I would lose what little fitness I had gained. It's the epitome of the phrase one step forward, two steps back.
Now, in January 2013, I find myself basically starting over. Sure, I could still crank out 8 miles without dying but it wouldn’t be easy or fun. I want running to be easy and fun again. And then I want to make it challenging.
Running is an area where I firmly believe I have untapped potential. Even at my best, I know I wasn’t as good as I could be. So rather than writing something like Run a sub-3 hour marathon, I’d like to Find my limit.
Let’s make this a running blog again.
