New goals…Happy New year!

2 Jan

Hello 2010! Do I have high hopes for you or what! So, adios 2009, thanks and ciou! I am planning to run 2500 kilometers this year. I plan to kick my previous marathon time in the butt and qualify for Boston…to do this I need a 4 hour and (i think) 29sec marathon..so of course I will aim for a sub 4 marathon. Even sub by 10 seconds will be fantastic. I am optimistic as all hell regarding this. My first…and err only marathon time is 4.29.6…how hard could it be to knock of 30 minutes huh!?

The word ‘planning’ is the key of course. In order to run 2500k and kick a sub-4 marathon, there needs to be a big, focused plan. Effort and hard work. I need to get to bed before 10.30pm and I need to wake at 5..or earlier. I need to be nutrionally sound. I need to do yoga and look after my mind and soul. I need to plan for all of it..I mean a hard copy, pinned on wall-plan. I will do this. I need to do this and look after my family, my career and my relationships.

But right now, I need a coffee.

Thanks for reading.

    Going with my New Year resolutions … more commenting and less just lurking – I thought I should introduce myself and say how much I’m enjoying your blog!

    I’d love to aim for Boston one day, so will be reading with great interest … I have yet to finish at least one marathon before I can really decide that should be a goal! LOL
