Another thing is that maybe I don't actually have to make any resolutions this year, because I'm halfway through one I made last year. Yeah, I've eaten junk since mid November and I've only run 3 times in the past 10 days, but I've also been sticking to a long term running program, and I feel really good about our half marathon that's only 57 days away...we've done lots of base runs, hill training, long runs and cross training. We've booked our days off, our car and found a place to stay. I think I have a cute outfit to wear.
Yeah, we've had a few stumbling blocks--vacations, being sick and oh, yeah, Christmas!---but overall, I'm incredibly proud of us! We've done distances we've never done before, run in the cold, in the snow and in the dark. I can't believe all the new things I've tried and even liked! Christmas was really tough on our schedule, but I know we'll be back on track soon because the three of us are set up for success. No matter how tired or crappy one of us feels, the other two are there to keep us motivated and on track and the support has been just fantastic! And joining the Running Room was a great idea too, we're still dragging ourselves out in the cold and in the dark to do the toughest stuff. Thanks to my fellow Princesses, 2011 is already a success! I can't wait for our run!
