With Duke City behind me, restricted activities for 3-4 weeks, I've been daydreaming about what I might do next.
This was actually prompted by Husband declaring a run goal of his own this week. He has announced that he doesn't want to run long, he wants to focus on a faster 5K. Cool, I think this is the first time he's had a goal other than "run to be healthy."
Of course this begs the question...what about me? What are my goals? For the most part, I haven't nailed down my own goals, but I've started thinking.
One big unknown is whether or not knee rehab will be successful.
If not, I think I can still do 5K runs, maybe 10Ks. My knee seems to be good up to about 5-6 miles. I could certainly join his quest for a faster 5K. There are lots of local 5Ks over the course of the year that we could sign up for. That would be fun.
However, if knee rehab works well, I think I'd like another attempt at the half-marathon distance. Maybe Unser this spring. I'm also intrigued by the Squash blossom half marathon in Gallup in September, a trail run.
On the triathlon front, I'm fairly certain that I'll stick to sprints again next year.
What about you? What are your goals/plans for next year? Have you figured them out yet or are you still daydreaming as well?
