Review 2010 and Goals 2011

It's the end of another year and everyone is reviewing the past year and setting goals for the next.

My MIL gave me a gorgeous journal to chronicle my running adventures in.  We will have to see what happens with that.  I'm thinking I should dig up my first marathon bib and put that in there...

I've been debating on doing another Susan G. Komen 3-Day, my biggest obstacle is the fundraising.  The two months leading up to the Twin Cities (the chosen walk for Blister Sisters in 2011) I will not be able to do any fundraising at all.   I am also looking at my other goals and how walking the 3-day would fit in not to mention the extra $$$ to get there.  I know it would be fun, oh if only money grew on trees.

So what did I do in 2010?

Well, I lost 70 pounds, walked the 3-Day, and my running has improved in quality and quantity.  I wasn't great about tracking all my miles but I have around 815 miles running and walking.

So what do I want to do in 2011?

I'm really thinking about running a 30K, 50K, and a 50M.  I want to volunteer for the Javelina Jundred and maybe pace someone.

Obstacles, a really big vacation but I vow to run while on vacation and enjoy the sights.

The beginnings of a plan...

I'm thinking I need to ramp my running up and see first of all if I can handle higher mileage and fit it in with my everyday life.  I've been doing a ton of reading and have settled on a Ultraladies 50 mile schedule.  I wish I lived closer to LA I'd totally join the group!

Basically here's the plan:

Week NumberMTWTFSSTotal

I am modifying the days so that my long runs land on Fri/Sat and this week I did run 6 miles on Sun so no rest that day but I've had plenty of rest the past 2 weeks!  I'm in the middle of week 1 and so far this is a breeze.  I can't remember the last time I went out and just ran 2 miles. :)  We will see how the back to back longer runs go.  

So for now this is the plan.  My next plan is to incorporate some strength training on the easier days and work on leg strength.
