2013 was good, 2014 will be great!

Thursday, January 02, 2014

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I had some good race results in 2013, some nice vacations including 2 bike trips, and got my skin cancer taken care off.

What I did not have are 12 injury free months. And any weight loss, except maybe 3 pounds.

In adding up my bike, run, walk mileage for 2103, I was not happy to be reminded that my mileage for February was: 11 miles biked, 42.7 miles run, and 28.6 miles walked. February may be a short month, but that is not what I'd like to see again.

My plans for 2014:

Run 1,500 miles including an easy, scenic Sedona marathon on 2/1 and a sub 3:30 marathon in Toronto on 10/19. Maybe, just maybe, I'll do the 100K I planned to do in celebration of turning 62 on September 6 at age 63.

Bike 1,500 miles, including another multi-day bike trip somewhere. This will include miles from Spinning classes.

Walk 500 miles. No increase from 2013. Prior to becoming a Sparker, I HATED walking. Maybe because when I was forced to walk, it was usually because of an injury that prevented me from running. Now I find that I enjoy a nice quiet walk. Or a walk with friends.

Get my weight down to 180 for my youngest daughter's wedding in October.

If I can go 12 months injury free, I think I can meet these goals. Heck, it is almost 4:00 p.m. on 1/02 and I haven't broken a New Year's resolution yet!

    I'll take the 3 pound weight loss.

I see that the chest thingy was the skin cancer? I thought maybe the chest surgery was a skin thing since you had running plans soon after.

No matter what your weight you will be a gracious and handsome father of the bride.
