Happy Tuesday and Happy Christmas Eve! This week’s topic – what are your goals for 2020? You can write about this, or any other running related topic. Remember to Link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
Well, another year is almost over. I know I say this every year but 2019 really went by in a flash. I’m super thankful for everything I was able to accomplish this year. Before discussing my goals for next year, here’s a look at my 2019 goals.
Run a minimum of 50 miles a month
Happy to report that I’m on track for this goal. I just need to run a few more miles to hit 50 miles for December. I ran 50 or more miles every other month this year.
Live my best life
I rally tried to take a positive and stress free approach to everything in my life this year, and it made a difference. I wouldn’t say that I totally felt stress free, but I feel like I handled situations in a much healthier way. I also think that having an attitude of gratitude really helped me this year as well.
Get outside my comfort zone
I did a lot of things to get outside of my comfort zone this year. Professionally, I traveled more for meetings and conferences and did more public speaking. Personally I explored a new city solo. This is something I never would have done in the past. I also traveled solo for an out of race state which was super fun!
Educate myself more on running
Status: In progress
I definitely could have read more books this year. I will continue this goal in 2020.
Here are my 2020 goals!
Burn 600 calories in an OTF class
I’ve secretly been trying to hit this goal every since I started OTF earlier this year but it hasn’t happened yet. I’ve come very close at 590 calories, but haven’t been able to break the 600 calorie mark yet. I don’t know what it will take for me to cross this threshold, but hopefully I’ll find the secret to accomplishing this goal next year!
300 Peloton rides
I just completed my 150th ride, so I’m going to set an ambitious goal to hit 300 rides in 2020. Toward the end of the year I didn’t give my bike the love it deserved so I’m going to change that next year. I want to get on my bike at least 2 days a week, hopefully more.
Run a minimum of 50 miles a month
I’m going to keep this goal again for 2020. It’s a good way for me to make sure that I keep up with my running and maintain a good base. I don’t really set goals for the number of miles I want to run in a year, but this will keep me accountable every month, which is something I need!
Add 3 more states to my 25 State Challenge
I have 10 more states to go on my quest to run a half marathon or marathon in 25 states. So far I am planning on adding Michigan to the list in October and hope to find at least two more new states to run in next year. Do you have any race recommendations for states that aren’t filled in on my map?
Complete a challenge every month
I set goals every month and next year I’d like to add a challenge for me to complete every month as well. For example, in January I’m going to challenge myself to do at least 5 minutes of core work every day. Each month will focus on something different, but it’s an awesome way to keep things interesting!
That’s it! Hope you enjoyed my list of 2020 goals. Do you have any goals for next year?
