Happy New Year everyone!!! I hope you all partied hard last night because it is now time to start going after all those goals you created for 2012. I left out one goal from my post on Friday and that goal is to run 1000 miles this year, which shouldn’t be too hard since I’ll be training for the NYC Marathon in the latter part of the year. The only thing I won’t do to achieve this goal is risk injury, I plan to actually listen to my body this year and if it needs rest then I plan to rest regardless.
To start racking up the miles toward this goal I ran a 5K today. I had originally planned to run a Hangover 5 miler but I ended just being lazy in the morning hanging out with my family and friends. I laced up around noon and headed out for my run, which I completely overdressed for considering it was about 49 degrees when I left the house. I was wearing my Nike thermal shirt and pants….I felt like an oven…lesson learned! I managed to complete my 5K anyway, a little on the slow side but it felt great!!!
I was pretty much cooked post run as you can see!!
During my run I saw an interesting sign in front of a church that I just had to stop and take a picture of because I think it make an interesting topic for discussion, especially today.
What do you think??
I feel that the saying on this sign is stating the truth in regards to New Year’s resolutions because most resolutions barely last 2 weeks….thats why the gym is packed the first half of January and then is empty by the end of January. I am guilty of making resolutions and giving them up, so this year I have chosen to create goals instead! What I don’t like about this saying is the assumption that everyone who makes a resolution will quit. I feel that what is written on this sign could actually be quite offensive to some…”if I stick with my resolutions than I should have trouble in my life??” I understand what they were trying to say but I don’t think it is the most appropriate saying to be placed on a sign in front of a church. I find this saying to be very negative and I feel it would have been more motivational to put a saying up that was positive, something that promoted change rather than discouraging it. In my opinion, this was not the best way to start off the new year.
What did you do today to work toward your 2012 goals?
