2015 is three weeks away! Like many of you, I cannot believe that 2014 is almost over. I thought it would be fun to post a Year in Review series each Wednesday leading up to New Years Eve. On that day I will share my 2015 goals.
Today I am reviewing my 2014 goals that I shared last New Years Eve.
RUNNING(here is my mid-year review)
Track Weekly Mileage – A great accountability tool since March!
Follow a Training Plan – I followed my marathon training group’s plan for New York and loosely following a Hal Higdon plan for Charleston.
Capture/Record Splits – Great mid-year and stopped for the second half of the year.
Create A, B, C Race Goals –Check! I will continue this next year.
#14in2014- I’ve completed 24 races and will have number 25 coming up in a couple of weeks. Next week I’ll share a running by the numbers post.
Time Goals – Achieved half.
- Sub 2:30 in the half marathon – ONGOING – currently 2:33:32
- Sub 2:00 in the ten miler – ACHIEVED – 1:51:46
- Sub 1:10 in the 10K – ACHIEVED – 1:09:10
- Sub 0:30 in the 5K -ONGOING – currently 30:57
FITNESS(here is my mid-year review)
Yoga/Barre/Ballet 1x/week – Inconsistent, especially during marathon training. Been getting better the past couple of weeks.
Spinning/Zumba 1x/week – Same as above!
Incorporate Swimming – Have not gone swimming this year.
Complete 5 Regular Pushups – Yes! Not the prettiest for #4 and #5, but much improved from last year’s zero.
Foam Roll Everyday – Pretty good!
Continue Strength Training – Strength trained throughout the year.
NUTRITION/FUN IN THE KITCHEN (here is my mid-year review)
Track my meals – Pretty inconsistent. I will carry this over next year for sure.
Cook a new recipe/month – Pretty good..although I did not cook a new recipe a month, it averaged out to more than one recipe/month.
Take a knife/cutting skills class – This should have been an easy one to accomplish since I received some YouTube recommendations, but didn’t get to it.
Blog to hold myself accountable – Yes!
Blog to have fun – Yes and still blogging!
Continue working on sub-pages and design elements – I think the only enhancement I made was inserting a Pinterest java code so the Pinterest icon will appear if you hover over a picture. I have some more design related plans for 2015 – which I will share in the next couple of weeks.
Read at least 2 books/quarter – Total fail! I think I read two the entire year!
Re-learn to knit and crochet – Back on next year’s list!
Volunteer at least 4x this year – Only managed to volunteer 2x this year – the Cherry Blossom and Nike Women’s Half expos.
