Goals – One month down

So it’s the end of January – 2013 is 31 days old.


How are you doing with your goals so far?

My goals? Well it’s still early but I’m doing the things I need to do to lay the foundation.

  • My pursuit of the 13 in 2013 Challenge begins with two races in February. I also recently registered for the Boston Athletic Association’s Distance Medley, which adds 3 more races. So I’m more than half way to my goal (at least from a registration point of view!)
  • PR goals will have to wait for my goal races in May and June.
  • Now that I’m back to double digit long runs, I’ve returned to the chiro (in addition to yoga and foam roller) to stay off of injured-reserve.
  • After reading Jason’s post on Cook Train Eat Race about core work, I joined the 30-day Ab Challenge-Core Work Facebook group. The goal is to do 30 straight days of core work — this will go a long way towards my strength training goal!
So that’s where things stand for me. 
Tell me – how did things go for you in January?


  1. You are the second person in an hour who I’ve read about doing the BAA distance medley. Sounds fun! My January was derailed by being sick but still eating like a marathoner. I’ll be dealing with the fallout of that in Feb.

  2. BAA distance medley sounds fun, too bad I live no where near there 🙁 I to am back training and pulled out the foam roller today!

  3. A 30 day an challenge? That sounds like what I need to kick my core into shape! Off to check the link out now’

  4. I’m so joining in on that challenge! It sounds awesome!

  5. Great job on the challenge. I feel like I’m bursting at the seams with challenges right now, so I’ll just cheer you on.

  6. I had been MIA with my chiro and paying for it. Playing catch up now with my very out of whack body. Such good advice for runners…well, anyone really! Get adjusted 😉

    I’ll be seeing you at the BAA distance medleys!

  7. Really like the idea of the 30 day core challenge, I will check it out. Thanks for posting!

  8. Thank you for the shout out Michelle. I really appreciate it.
