that counts, right?! So I'm a week or two late on the holiday greetings. Anyway.
Happy 2007, y'all. The first photo trio goes to the RBF. The second (scroll down) is a rather naughty one of me and Jeanne after one too many lemon drop martinis. Both taken at the company holiday party.
I'm back from my 2+ week hiatus from blogging ... and running. No, make that almost a month since my last good run. But I'm baaaaack: 5 miles of intervals on the elliptical machine yesterday, and a 7-mile run earlier this evening.
Stack 'em up: I'm not one of those people who turns up her nose at turning over a new leaf in the new year. I am all about self-improvement. [Just ignore the two chocolate-covered doughnuts with rainbow sprinkles that I inhaled this morning.]
Looking back over some notes to myself from last year, I saw two of my 2006 resolutions:
1. Run a 10K in 48:00
2. Run a marathon in under 4:00
I was a bit lazy trying to achieve the first one. The last 10K I raced was back in April or May. Haven't really tried since then. But I came pretty close to hitting that goal. My time in that spring 10K was 48:48. As for the second: Yeah baby, been there, done that.
Here are my 2007 health-and-fitness-related new year's resolutions:
1. Qualify for Boston
2. Run a 10K in 46:00
3. Race in two states I've never raced in before
4. Eat sweets only twice a week [gonna be hard]
5. Do yoga or other core strengthening twice a week
Oh, and a 6th resolution, which may elicit as many groans as grins: I intend to post on this blogeroo three times a week. No more long absences from the RBF. You help keep me sane.
