When I started running last March, I never expected that I would continue with it. I did the Couch to 5K plan to prove to myself that I could complete something that was completely out of my comfort zone.
Back then, I ran in ancient (AKA gross) sneakers with no knowledge of pace or technique. I just got on a treadmill three days a week and followed the plan. When my first 5K race rolled around, I did it and enjoyed it but not enough to keep track of how many miles I was running.
Now, 10 months later, I have 5 races under my belt and my cardio of choice is running. Though I’m not exactly speedy or particularly great at it, I have come to (mostly) enjoy it. Do I get up at 5 am and pound out 7 miles every morning? Well, no, not yet. But maybe someday.
This year I am adding a resolution to my list. I want to log my miles and maybe even have a goal mileage in mind. But since dance will take over my life once again very soon, I don’t need to resolve to run any crazy number… just enough for me.
I want to know: Do you log your miles? What’s your mileage goal for 2012?
