My goal for this month is slightly better for me than ramen. Slightly. I want to hit 100 miles this month. I've never gone that high, but I've come close!
|August = 1/2 marathon training|
September=sick for entire week
I will run 100 miles this month. When I started the sentence before this, I almost wrote "I probably...". None of that. I will hit my goal.
It's interesting that even without a large event to train for, I still have this drive to go further and/or faster in my runs. I was concerned that I would get to be a slacker with nothing huge to look forward to. Not happening, which is awesome.
My next race is a 5K in December. My goal is a new PR there. And it's an important PR; if I improve on my current PR it will mean I will average a sub-10 minute mile. I know I have it in me. I will be doing speedwork in between now and then and get myself mentally prepared. 10:00? You're going DOWN!
Other than that, I will say that I am thankful today that my Ann Taylor Loft credit card bill came. I know - weird to be happy for a bill. It's just that it's a new credit card and my first bill from them, and I wanted to be sure that it didn't get lost somehow. I just have these extremely paranoid visions of my credit being screwed up because of an unpaid lost bill!
And that ends our #whitepeoplesburdens section of November.
