2012 Goals

Ok, so I think it's time for me to finalize my running goals for 2012. But, before I go into that, let me take a look back at 2011.Overall I'm pretty happy with 2011. Lets take a look at what I wrote 1 year ago:

Set a PR in:
5K - yes
Half - I would have if the half I ran didn't turn into a 9.5 miler so this is a semi-yes
Marathon - Didn't end up running one
Do an Olympic Triathlon - yes, I did two!
Run 2000 Miles - Nope, only 1617, which is 31 miles per week, and 276 more than 2010.

Stretch Goals: Nope :(
<20 5K
<1:35 Half
<3:20 Marathon

So, even though I completed only half of my regular goals and none of my stretch goals, I am not at all disappointed. This is most likely due to me being very gung-ho about 2012. I have laid out a slew of goals and I am very excited about what's to come.

Half PR
Marathon PR
Longest running streak
Highest weekly mileage
Highest monthly mileage
Highest yearly mileage
under 160 lb

sub 20 5k
sub 1:35 half
sub 3:20 marathon
60 mile week
2000 mile year
50K ultra
under 155 lb

sub 19:30 5k
sub 1:32 half
sub 3:15 marathon
70 mile week
50 mile ultra
under 150 lb

Crazy Hard:
sub 19:00 5k
sub 1:30 half

I will admit that I just added the running streak to my easy goals, because I'm about to beat it this week if I don't miss the next two days! knock on wood.
