In 2007, I ran 427 miles. I cycled for 1296 miles. I swam 58,225 (meters/yards?). I did strength work in the gym 36 times.
I completed two 5K, two 10K, two sprint tri, two oly tri, two half-marathons and one oddball race.
I wasted a little $$ on a few races. There were two 5Ks that I didn't run. I also forwarded the race registration on one sprint triathlon to the next year.
Thoughts about 2007:
A lot of my 2007 was good. I established exercise as an integral part of my everyday life. I completed races in new distances, 10k, oly tri, half-marathon, and gained more self-confidence. I met some really neat people blogging and in 'real-life' and have new friends and know more people at races. I commuted to work by bike twice a week during the summer and early fall. I bought a comfy new carbon bike. Husband bought his first ever road bike. I discovered how fun it is to ride with Husband. Husband joined me on almost all of the running races and even ran at my side at both half-marys. I discovered running skirts. I never took anything too seriously and had loads of fun.
Some parts of 2007 were not so good. It has been incredibly difficult to balance everything while working full time and working around the kids schedules. I had open water anxiety issues to work through. I am slow as molasses and not getting any faster. I had a motivation set back in December; it's scary how easy it is to get back into the coach potato life. I still feel like an athlete poser.
Thoughts for 2008:
Not quite sure what I want to do this year, so I don't have big goals laid out yet. I think I want to do three or four half-marathons and try to break 2:30:00. I might like to do the MS150 in August or some similar long distance cycling event. I want to improve my oly distance performance.
I also want to make a life change that has a positive impact on the environment and possibly motivates others to do the same. Watch this space.
