Resolutions for 2010

So, before I get started with resolutions, I just want to say: I've never been this sore before.

I've never had to actually ice my knees and ankles after a run (or a race). My calves are still not feeling so hot, but I really want to run tomorrow, so hopefully I can shake that off. I also won't be able to run outside tomorrow due to an all-weekend snow storm, so to the gym it is.

I'm still a little frustrated my work on the treadmill hasn't translated to the street. That is something I definitely need to work on - and pacing myself. Why am I finding this so hard? Do other people find this hard too?

Anyway, here are my goals for 2010:

1. Run a 5k in 37 minutes.

2. Run and finish a half marathon. (Oh boy is that terrifying! But it would be a dream come true!)

3. Continue to monitor what I eat.

4. Learn to love vegetables.

5. I need to cook more and not be terrified of it.

Okay so that's really it. I'm not really comfortable setting too many goals or resolutions, because I hate being disappointed. This will have to do.

Look out, 2010. I will OWN YOU.


  1. Do you think it's the cold that causes your legs to hurt? Do any running web sites address running in the winter? I have a veggie steamer you can have --veggies taste good when they are steamed. You just plug it in, add some water and put the veggies in. Cook stuff at low heat and spray your pan with PAM. Call us before you cook something so we can help. That's it from you secret advisor! PS: I can't figure out how to comment as anyone but anonymous but you know who this is!!! LOL

  2. haha, thanks mom! (mom, right?)
