Can you believe it's already 2018!? Part of me thinks 2017 went by slowly and dragged on, but then at times it feels like I blinked in 2012 and now its 2018 and I don't know how we got here!
So, nows the time of year where people make resolutions. Some people love it and do it each year, some think it's unnecessary. I guess I'm somewhere in the middle.
See, I think it's always a good thing to want to improve as a person, but I don't think it can all be decided on what that looks like till more in the day to day. I like to think of 2-3 big goals then from there break it into smaller steps and changing habits.
I sat down and really thought about what I want out of this year, and what kind of wife, daughter, runner, friend, and person I want to be.
|This is me researching resolutions.....|
My main goal is to be more consistent:
1. With reading Scripture and praying, I want to be closer with God and more consistently working on that relationship.
2. With organizing, keeping my house clean and tidy. I want to get on a routine with laundry, cleaning, and clearing out clutter.
3. With running! Stick to a training plan and keep time off after races to a more reasonable length. Mileage goal: 750 miles.
For the first 2 points on my list I plan on investing in a good women's devotional, and daily scripture reading. I also plan on finding a good cleaning schedule (I'll check out pinterest) and sticking it up on my fridge!
For my final sub-goal, running. Ah, I love running....till I get out of the habit, then it's so HARD to get back to it. Which is exactly why my goal is to run consistently, so I don't have to struggle to get back into it every couple of months.
My sister got me this awesome 2018 planner designed specifically for runners! I found a goal race (March 31st, Cook Forest-it hasn't opened for registration yet though) a half-marathon, I went onto my Garmin Connect and found a great training plan, and started filling in my new planner!
All in all, I have a very good feeling about this year!
So, how about you, any resolutions? Or goals?
Did you make life resolutions and running resolutions?
Do you have a mileage goal for 2018?
