Here's hoping I can successfully achieve some goals
Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Last fall I set some goals I wanted to achieve during my 50th year of life. It's been 6 months since my 49th birthday, so it's about time I revisited those goals.
The next two weeks should show me how I'm doing on the physical goals. I wanted to:
1) finish a 5K race in under 30 minutes
2) finish a half-marathon
3) finish a sprint triathlon
This coming Saturday is my first 5K of the year--not counting the Valentine's Day race, which wasn't really timed. I've done a 4-mile race, at which I achieved a PR, but this 5K is special. My weight loss support group is doing it as a team, and it's the same race I did as my very first ever 5K last year. Based on my 4-mile time, I have a very good chance of achieving the goal of finishing under 30 minutes. Fingers crossed!
The following weekend, April 28th, I am scheduled to run my first half-marathon. I feel fairly confident that I can finish it; whether I'll achieve my tentative time goal is another story, but my goal for the first half-marathon is really just to finish.
So the next 10 days may see the accomplishment of two of those three goals. Wish me luck!
