I already talked about 2017 in running but I also had a couple of other goals going into the year:
I may have mentioned getting the basement together and that's another big yes. We put down exercise mats, installed Sven (the treadmill) and decorated with medals and race bibs. It's a lovely space, unless a cat comes down and has a shit in the litter box around the corner.
Back in 2016 I set a goal of reducing the credit line and in the last few months of 2017 I finally made progress - it's at less than 1/3 of what it was (because we haven't booked any trips). This makes me very happy, except for having no trips booked obviously. Edit WAIT I just booked a trip so yeah that might affect future progress.
What about 2018?
One big giant sexy goal race. Only one!
Unfortunately I can't run the Pittsburgh Marathon in 2018 as I used up my vacation with the UK trip, I might need to be sedated in May for a few days. My vacation year runs from July - July.
Start something new with less impact/wear and tear on my Achilles - I've always wanted to have a go at open water swimming.
Weight. For heaven's sakes make some progress. Any progress. And....Eat better. Honest to god someone should show me a pile of all the junk I've eaten this year.
Say 'no' more. I keep saying yes to stuff I really don't want then dread it for weeks and suffer through whatever it is then get sick after. I don't have to feel guilty about asserting my space and recognizing my boundaries instead of trying to make everyone happy and having a breakdown. (Stay tuned for 2019 - be less of a bitch).
