It’s been 2016 now going on two days. I’m still not completely sure what the new year will bring for me. What I do know is I do have a few goals in mind to get start on right away. I don’t believe in resolutions, but I do believe in setting goals for yourself, both short-term and long-term ones.
— Get closer to God. This is my biggest goal for the year. I don’t want to be lukewarm, I want to be completely in for Christ. It’s not going to be easy every day, but I want to commit myself to really work on my relationship with Him.
— 2,016 miles in 2016. I’ve joined the challenge through Run the Edge to run this mileage this year. I’m part of a team of four. So, this makes getting in 2,016 miles between all of us easier. I want to see if I can exceed the 504 miles that I will be accountable for.
— Restart PiYo. It’s time to again hit ‘play’ and get my sweat on with Chalene Johnson! I really do love her, and I want to finally follow through on getting the entire program done this year.
— Read a book a month. I’ve gotten off reading as much as I used to. Goal is to read at least a book a month. Again, I’d love to exceed that, but first thing is to get going on my reading again on a consistent basis.
— Work on my speed. With 2016 being the year of the half marathon for me (no full marathons until at least 2017), I want to work on getting a bit faster. So, I’m going to get back on the track for weekly track workouts, and do hill workouts when I can. I’d love to better my 5k, 10k and half marathon times this year.
That’s the five goals I’ve got to start working on in 2016. I am also going to drop the 3-4lbs I re-gained after running NYC during the holidays. Too much junk food doesn’t do my muffin top good! Then, I want to maintain my goal weight again like I did from June through the big marathon last year. I think not running a marathon will help in keeping my weight…at least I hope so. 🙂
What are your goals for 2016? I’d love to hear about them!
Let’s help one another stay accountable and motivated this year.
