It feels a little weird for me not to have a goal (other than the "goal" of not weighing myself everyday and/or obsessing about my weight). I like goals. I like having some tangible thing I'm trying to achieve. Sooooo - I think I'll make a new one!
Run ten miles on the treadmill in less than 1.5 hours.
I don't really have a specified date I'd like this completed - but I want to do it in the healthiest, most comfortable way possible for my body. So I don't think it will necessarily happen next week. I'm setting a time limit because I think, in theory, I could probably run ten miles now if I just took it super slow. So I don't want that to be my goal (ie, just run 10 slow-a miles in 2+ hours). I want to keep up with the pace I have now when I do my 6 or 7 mile runs which, according to my Nike+ GPS app*, is usually around 8:30-8:45.
So that's my new goal! To achieve it, I'm just going to keep clocking the miles - and then gradually add onto them (even if that's adding an extra .25 at a time). I've noticed that once I get to 7 miles, my body starts to get pretty achy - so I think I need to chill out there for awhile so I can get used to running that much on a regular basis.
Anyone else need a new goal? Want to try to achieve it alongside me?
*This app is awe-some! If you have an iPhone & you like to run, you need it. Pay the $2.99. It's worth it (and I'm not usually a person who pays for apps).
