So, it's time to set some running goals for 2009! Here they are:
- Build my base to 35 - 45 miles per week
- Put in 1500 miles during the year
- Run one marathon
- Keep it fun!
Shooting low? Maybe. But of the four goals, I think #4 is the highest priority for me. Over the last year and a half, I have come to really enjoy running. I have come to grips with the fact I will probably never win an age group award. And, being a results driven person, I know I've found something that I like because that doesn't bother me. More importantly, I haven't burned out even though I know I'm not going to win. As long as I am able to keep running fun, I'm pretty comfortable that I won't burn out. And, if I don't burnout, the rest of the goals will take care of themselves!
Now, on to 2009! I will putting my tactical plan together on a month by month basis to achieve these goals....
