Track Weekly Mileage – ONGOING
I’ve been tracking my weekly mileage/workouts each Monday since March. Thanks to all those who commented and gave advice – it has definitely been a great accountability tool.
Follow a Training Plan – ONGOING
I would say this has been more of a quasi effort. I am happy that I trained through the winter, increasing my endurance base. I will officially begin marathon training in 3ish weeks – I look forward to following a plan and sharing my experience with everyone.
Capture/Record Splits – ONGOING
Rockstar status – I’ve been pretty consistent capturing my race splits. It has been a great way to see how I’ve improved over the year and where I need to improve (ex. race strategy for shorter distances or the last 3 miles of a half).
Create A, B, C Race Goals – ONGOING
Check, check and check! This one was low hanging fruit! While I do not always meet my goals, they definitely keep me motivated. I have certainly surprised myself through the year.
