It was great to wake up and realize I had a scheduled rest day this morning. Coming off a three day weekend, it’s always nice to ease into the work week by sipping coffee and watching the news. Somehow, going from a deep sleep into the cold wet weather to run lacked appeal today.
I’m thinking about my running goals for 2012 but I haven’t yet set them in stone. I would like to do more running outside of Long Island than I did last year. As a subset to that, I would like to explore more off-road venues. I’m hoping to participate in as many races as I did in 2011 and to improve my half marathon time by at least ten minutes. I did five personal bests in my ten 2011 races, so it will be hard to repeat that this year. But I promise to try.
I’ll be listing my full set of goals soon. The most important, as always, is to finish the year as excited about running as when I started it.
