Take 4,000,000 steps in 2017 | I made it my goal most months at the end of 2016 to get 80,000 steps each week - and for the most part I was successful. It got me up and moving during the work day and made sure I continued to move after my runs each weekend. To make it to 4 MILLION steps in 2017 I'll need to average 76,923 steps each week, and while it's a lot, I think I can do it! Luckily my FitBit makes it easy to track. P.S. If you wanna be Fitbit friends, holla at.
Track my 2017 running mileage | I tracked my mileage old school back in 2011 when I was training for my first two marathons. I had pretty much no idea what I was doing - did 99% of my runs on the treadmill and insisted on writing everything down to 2 decimal places, which made adding it all up such a nightmare. I'm so curious to know what kind of mileage I'm running in a year. I'm not ready to make a mileage goal yet, I would guess I'll run around 500 miles next year, my first step is to track it all & see where I come out. I'll track via GoogleSheets so I can access it anywhere - and I'll use this to keep track of my weekly steps too.
PR in 2+ distances (HM & 5K) | I'm trying a spring training plan totally different than anything I've tried before (more on that to come in the next few weeks) so I am expecting big things. I've picked a spring half that I think will increase the chances I have good weather. And y'all know I am still chasing that sub-25 5K time - but 2017 is my year, I know it.
Race another TRI | I raced a sprint triathlon in 2015 & I LOVED the process. The training was so much fun and it made me such a strong runner. While I'm not 100% sure I would re-race my first tri, since the RD can't seem to pull it together, I'm excited to tri train again. I mean, talk about built in cross training!
