Week 1 of 2015 with goals written out.

Happy New Year 2015!!!

I like to set goals all the time, mostly weekly because I feel those are easier to achieve and won't let you down if you miss a weekly goal.

I also like to make "what I call Ultimate Goals"

Here are a few of mine for the year of 2015:

  • Complete an Olympic and Half Ironman Triathlon
  • Do a Sprint Triathlon faster than I've done it in the past, so that means faster than 1:44:29 for a 600 yard swim, 15 mile bike and 5K run.
  • Run the Air Force Triple race and complete it strong, meaning at the end of the 23.1 miles I still feel like I could run more.  This race is something I have registered for, it is on September 18th and 19th in Dayton, Ohio.  You run a 5k on Friday night, then on Saturday morning run the 10K at 7:30 a.m., you then have to finish the 10K within the hour no matter what because the half marathon starts at 8:30 a.m.  I have wanted to do this for 3 years, but didn't have a 10K timed race under an hour yet.  Now I do so I'm ready.  I'm currently, most times doing a 10K distance under an hour in practice, so I'm looking forward to my next 10K timed race to see how that goes.
  • Try for milage every day. Even if it's a walk on Sunday, that is mileage.
  • Swim at least once a week.  
  • Run over 1000 miles this next year.  Last year I did 834.60 miles.  I know I can do better than that.
  • Bike more often, try for once a week.
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables every day.

Here is how the first week of 2015 actually went:

Monday:taught Sculpt and Zumba
Tuesday:taught Sculpt
Wednesday: Ran 5.40 miles  22 degrees, 15 mph winds
Thursday:  Ran 5.45 miles.  32 degrees,  15 m.p.h. winds, taught Sculpt
Friday:Ran Sprint intervals for 3.5 miles on a treadmill, swam 700 yards, lifted weights.  Ran 2.05 miles outside. Total running for the day was 5.55 miles
Saturday: Ran 6.40 outside 36 degrees.
Sunday: Speed Walked, partially ran because dog dragged me 1.15 miles.

Totals for Week 1:

Sculpt classes:  3
Zumba classes:  1
Ran 22.80 miles
Swam:  700 yards

Good about week 1:  Was active every day with Sunday being the lightest day for a rest.
Happy about my mileage on the days I went out.  Trying to be more consistent with doing mileage every day.

Bad about week 1:  Didn't bike

Goals for week 2:  Bike and swim  once.  Run more miles than I did last week.  Eat better than last week.  With the holidays I was naughty.
