I already plan to wear my medal for a week and pretend like I'm a queen. I already told all my friends they had to at least pretend to be impressed. I will be very happy to finish between 3 and 4. Faster than 4 and I'm wearing my medal for the rest of the year while pretending I'm a queen.
After the half, I have some other goals in mind for the winter. Although in my mind, they're called plans. Here are my winter plans:
- I've been doing core and weight exercises on Wednesday mornings at the gym. I'm planning to take that up a notch. I want to do core exercises at least twice a week and will be starting The New Rules of Lifting for Women. I'm really excited about building strength. This can only help me in my athletic development.
- I will continue taking CycleFit classes. I love CycleFit and I don't want to lose any gains I've made in my biking this year. I may also get some spin DVDs so I can train better at home too. I have a trainer. I should take advantage of it.
- Start swimming. Swim at least once per week. I may even finally sign up for those swim lessons at the SRSC so I don't have to worry that the lifeguards are secretly laughing at me while I flail myself from one end of the pool to the other. Also, I want to swim correctly and efficiently.
- I would like to continue running at least two, but preferably three days per week. I may start working on getting faster.
And finally, here are some random long-term and/or fun goals, in no particular order:
- Become an Iron(wo)man
- Run a sub 30 minute 5K
- Run a marathon
- Do a Rock N Roll race
- Do a Disney race
- Complete a century bike ride
- Do RAIN
- Conquer Mt Tabor in the Hilly Hundred
- Cross-country bike tour
- Lose 30 pounds
- Figure out how to work yoga into my routine as well
- Make my blog more interesting/popular
- Eat better more consistently
- Convince my husband to work out too
