Looking Back on 2012

2012 was a pretty good year.  I accomplished things I never thought possible.  I had set some goals last year and met most of them. 

Totals for the year:

Miles Run--476.05 (unless I run tonight)  This is down from the previous year of 600 miles.  Somehow in my deluded mind, I thought I could run 1000 miles in a year and that was my goal.  ha.  good one.  I guess I never really broke that down into what that means per month because there no way this girl is going to average 83 miles a month!  Maybe if that's all I did, but trying to keep up with tennis, swimming and biking--that is just not going to happen. 

Reasonable goal for 2013--550

Miles Biked--220 miles.  Last year 164, the goal I set for myself was 250.  Close enough.  Yay me.

Goal for 2013--maintain and shoot for 260. 

Miles Swam--54!  Last year I swam 22 and my goal was 50!  That means I'm probably about 30 miles away from the 100 mile club at our local YMCA.  That's pretty exciting stuff for someone who couldn't swim 10 lengths without stopping just 2 years ago. 

Goal for 2013--join the 100 mile club at the Y.  End the year with 60 miles of swimming.

December totals 2012

Miles Run--37.65
Swim Yards--10,000
Tennis--5 hours
Bike Minutes--190
Weight Training--70 minutes

I didn't race much this year, but what I did, I loved!

First place finish in a local YMCA sprint tri!

Ran into some friends at the Beach to Beacon 10K

Conquered this ocean swim to complete my first olympic length tri!

One of my proudest accomplishments yet.

We managed to get in some non-running fun as well.

Oh!  and ended the year with one last race--the Operation Jack Satellite Run 10K.  19 degrees out and we knocked out 6.2 like nobodys business.

If I got to run with this crew all the time, I think I might want to do a marathon.....

That's all for 2012.  I wish you all a happy, healthy and wealthy New Year!

Great year for you! All the swimming should definitely count to your overall mileage - in my deluded mind anyway :)

Happy New Year!
