People often start out their years proclaiming “New Year, New Me”. But I don’t need to be “made new.” I’m pretty excited about the direction I’ve been going over the past year (and then some). This is a new year, but I’m continuing on improving the awesome me that already exists!!
There is no doubt that 2014 was pretty awesome. I accomplished two HUGE fitness goals that I previously never even imagined I’d be involved in. In June, I finished my first marathon and in September, I completed my first fitness competition! Both required physical and mental strength that I never had to tap into before, and on some days of training, I wasn’t even sure it was there. But it was! I showed myself that I am a strong, capable and exciting woman and I have no plans to slow down in 2015!
Towards the end of the year, after my competition, I really began to slack off with this blog and on my running. In October and December I ran my 5th and 6th half marathons with barely any training. I absolutely do NOT recommend this, of course. But it has taught me the importance of training. I know mentally that I could get off my couch right now and complete a full marathon if I had to. But I wouldn’t do well and could possibly injure myself. My last two half marathons were the absolute worst times I’ve ever recorded. I still had fun, as I always do, and got a couple pretty sweet medals to add to the collection, but I know I can do better.
What’s the point of doing anything if you’re not doing you’re best?
So for 2015, I present my following goals, both fitness and personal.
I’m still working on concrete plans for achieving these goals. And I have a couple other big secret goals in the works for the coming year. It is sure to be a year of adventure and determination!! Let’s go!!
