I normally don't "do" the New Year's Resolution thingy very good. I'm more the type to be making resolutions/goals all the time! But this year, I decided to doing something big after my "rest" year from major walk training...I decided to go for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day (60 mile) for the Cure in 2012 AND I made this ridiculously crazy goal of walking 1,000 miles in 2012!
Maybe not so ridiculous to you folks who walk all the time and have the time for such things. Easy in fact for you who work at a job that requires walking. But for a "stay at home Mom" (hysterical laughing) who teaches 3 children during the day and has to divide the rest of my time up between Husband, Home, Laundry, Church, Cardio Kickboxing, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Shopping, etc... Well...you get the picture.
In my heavy training year for 2010's 3-Day event, I only logged about 650 miles. So going for 1,000 is crazy.
(Hysterically laughing again) So Crazy!
I'm tackling this like I tackled the getting rid of 120 lbs. One step...one mile at a time. I know that if I raise the funds that I won't be walking much at all in November as the last time I did the 60, I damaged both legs in the process and couldn't pull miles for about 5 weeks while I healed. So I know I have to be ahead of the game a bit.
Crazy and OCD in one woman...you'd think my poor husband would have pulled in the reins a bit but NO. He and the children are so excited about my goal and they are encouraging me.
Now I have no way out!
