Mid-Year Goal Check-In

I’m a few days late, but we just passed the halfway mark for 2015, so I thought it would be a good idea to check in on the running goals I set for 2015 and see how I’m doing.

2015 Goals:

Volunteer at a race Β 

Not yet. There are a couple I’m looking at, but my schedule is bananas right now, so I’m being commitment phobic.

Run at least 500 miles

Right now I’m at 136 for the year. Not quite where I want to be, but I’ve got time to get there, and I have half marathon training starting in August, which will help a lot.

Run 15 races in 2014

So far I’ve run six races, and I’m already registered for three more, which puts me at nine. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to cram in 6 more races, but we’ll see.

Run a sub-29 5k race

CHECK! I ran a 28:55 on my birthday, which was an awesome present to myself. Time to start chasing a 27:xx 5k!

Run an actual 10k race

I’m registered for the Jaxson’s Dog Days of Summer 10k hosted by RaceVermont on July 25. Barring injuries or illness between now and then, I’ll be able to check this one off the list.

Don’t have any non-running months

So far, so good. Most of my months have been pretty low-mileage, but I haven’t had any non-running months, so I’ll take it!

Participate in the RW Holiday Run Streak

Still on the docket, but if it’s a particularly wet or icy early winter, I’ll probably bag it, since I don’t want to get hurt.

Not bad for the first half of the year. I’m excited to see where the rest of the year takes me!

How are you doing on your 2015 running goals?

    Not bad at all! And congrats on meeting your 5K goal! One of these days I’ll beat mine…. My goals for this year aren’t going so great because of my silly injuries, but at least I was able to check one off. Now my goal is to get healthy and slowly work on the others πŸ™‚

    Woohoo – good work! It’s totally possible to keep pushing and complete more of these too! I still have to volunteer for a race as well. I’ve actually contacted people about volunteering for one in September, but communication hasn’t been so great yet. Hopefully I’ll hear more soon though!

    Awesome job so far – and you have had so much going on that it isn’t worth sweating everything!

    My basic goals for the year (had to check my old blog post) were:
    (1) Start and Finish the year healthy and injury free
    (2) Run >2500 miles
    (3) Run at least 2 races, 1 short, 1 long
    (4) Set a PR in something
    (5) Put in time on the trails
    (6) Maintain my weight without unhealthy eating habits or restriction

    As for how I’m doing?
    – Healthy? Definitely – better than ever!
    – Run >2500? Well on my way – I have done ~1600 miles so far
    – 2 races? Well, I did a run/walk 5k for charity with Lisa (her joints & arthritis make sustained running impossible) … which was the best thing ever. No clue if I will do another race … don’t care.
    – PR? Doubtful if I don’t run another race πŸ™‚ Don’t really care, though!
    – Trails? With Lisa’s new job we have full weekends together so I run more in the mornings and take weekends off … so trails are less likely.
    – Maintain healthy weight? ABSOLUTELY! πŸ™‚

    So I am also having a great year! Keep up the good work!

      It sounds like you are having a killer year! It’s always nice to look at goals and feel fulfilled and happy, regardless of whether or not you’ve actually hit them.

    Great job so far! I like your goal of not having any non-running months. I think I’ll add that one to my list for next year!! Would give me more incentive to try not to get injured, lol!
