This was supposed to be my best year of running and thus far it is turning into my worst. I made some big running goals for this year and so far I have not met one of them due to injury and illness. You can check out my Goals here. My biggest goal was to run the NYC Marathon and after heading out for a disappointing run today I am facing the real possibility that the marathon may not be in the cards for me this year.
These were my running goals for 2012:
I will run a 1/2 Marathon in 1:45.had to pull back due to a stress fracture, was supposed to run the NYC 1/2
- I will run the NYC Marathon in
4 hours.Changed it to finish, hopefully in under 5 hours
- I will run a 5K in under
25 minutes, hoping to break 23 minutes.5K’s are on the backburner until after the marathon
- I will run a 10K in under
50 minutes.Had planned to do this during the NYC mini 10K but developed severe bronchitis with a 102 fever 2 days before the race.
- I earned a new 5K PR-25:09
- I ran my fastest mile-7:01
- I ran my longest distance-14.2 miles
