This morning I woke up to my ever-the-early-riser toddler tantruming about some nameless injustice in his 34 month old world. I have similar tantrums when awoken a good 2-3 hours before the sun rises. That’s just how our mornings go. Raise your coffee cup in solidarity if you feel my pain.
While Fit Boy was eating breakfast, I checked emails and was greeted with my yearly summary of my physical activity from 2012 courtesy of DailyMile. Given that I was not cleared for exercise until April and ridiculously pregnant before that, the fact that I moved 500km for the entire year is pretty sweet. Also sweet is the notion that I’ve never moved that much in one year period. And that’s just the movement I remembered to record
Check out my totals here if you’re interested.
This year when I made my running goals, I specifically omitted a distance marker and the reason for that was I didn’t want to put pressure on myself to go a certain distance. The goals I have come up with are lofty enough, I don’t want to create stress in my life if I don’t get X number of miles logged. I want to enjoy the journey, enjoy the miles and hopefully rock out the year.
Your Turn: Do you set distance/mileage goals when you run or are you more of a race or overall miles logged kind of runner?
