“Spring” is almost over (for these purposes, spring is March, April, and May), so I should hold myself accountable to the goals I set for myself.
- PR at the Hot Dash 10 Mile
DNS, womp womp.
- Course PR at Chippewa Moraine 50K
I had a 25 minute course PR!
- Overall PR at Chippewa Moraine 50K
I fell short of this goal, unfortunately. Time to improve my nutrition in ultras.
- Sub 4 hours at Superior 25K
Yes! I had a great race and came in at 3:49:45!
- Sub 30 minutes at Be The Match 5K
I ran a gun time of 29:00 (watch time 28:30, grrr, I am stupidly bitter), so check check check!
60% achievement – that’s a D- in school, but I consider it pretty good. I don’t set goals that I can easily check off. Well, sometimes I do, but not exclusively! It’s sometimes nice to not make my goals so that I don’t have to make up new ones, ha.
I wish I had run the Hot Dash 10 Mile, and I feel stupid for not getting up to run it, but whatever. It’s not like I forfeited thousands in prize money or something. I’m sure I would have enjoyed it but it’s fine. I like sleep, too.
Checking in on my overarching 2018 goals:
-Taking deliberate rest breaks: I plan on taking 2 weeks off after FANS.
-Running more miles than 2017/reaching 1000 miles earlier than 2017: I am 70 miles ahead of my 2017 mileage through May 23rd.
-Going outside daily “with intention”: Not every day, but more days than not. I’m keeping track in my running journal.
-Turning strength training into a habit: No
-Tracking spending: I forgot I was going to do this, so no
-Spending more time with other runners: Kind of? I walk at lunch with 2 other women, and I have people to talk to pre and post race, but I’m not going on group runs or anything. I didn’t join the running gym as it’s really far from my house.
Now I have to hurry and make up my summer running goals since my first opportunity is just around the corner!
