<b>Race Goals</b><br>
LaCrosse 5 miler - January 5<br>
LaCrosse 5 miler - February 8<br>
Irish for a Day 5k - March 15 - I’d like a new PR but I’m not really sure what my 5k PR is. In my handy dandy new runningahead.com PR listing it shows the same race run in consecutive years as:<br>
2006 3.2 miles 26:42<br>
2007 3.1 miles 25:34<br>
Earth Day Half - April 18-19 - Under 2 Hours<br>
Madison marathon relay - May 27 - Run well and Have a lotta fun!<br>
Grandmas Half - June 21 - if I get in, run faster than I did at Earth Day for a <span style="text-decoration:underline;">new</span> PR.<br>
Reach the Beach Relay - September 12-13 - Run well and Have a lotta fun!<br><br><b>Fitness Goals</b><br>
Run at least 3x a week.<br>
Total mileage for this year was under about 460 miles. Now that I’m settled in at home and at work, I see no problem getting more miles in for 2008 and I’m going to put 700 as my mileage goal for 2008.<br>
I’m also going to do more strength training and learn to use the machines at the gym. I have free weights at home that I’ll use but at least once a week I’ll go to the gym for some weight training on machines in order to shake things up and use my muscles in a different way than with free weights.<br>
Spin Class at least once a week.<br>
Yoga every Sunday morning at the gym.<br><br><b>Nutrition Goals</b><br>
Water Water Water<br>
Keep a food journal<br>
Limit /eliminate the “easy” foods - fast food, pizza delivery, Kraft Mac N Cheese, chips. ICE CREAM <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> OK that’s not necessarily easy but I lerv Ice Cream. It’s my favorite.

My goals are more generic but do have wide reaching benefits:<br><br>
Cross training: 3 days a week<br><br>
Running: 4 days a week<br><br>
Eat smaller portions<br><br>
Drink about 100 oz of water a day<br><br>
Cut down on eating late meals as much as possible as those stay with you the most.<br><br>
If I am consistent then those things will all contribute to a healthier, slimmer, trimmer, me. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> If I do all of the above for most of the year then my two other goals will be achieved:<br><br>
Get my weight down in the upper 180s. Which means lose about 17 pounds or so in a year.<br><br>
Lose more inches around my waist. Perhaps at least 4 to 6. I don't really have a set goal in mind but an overall reduction is the idea.

Why do you need #6? You have already achieved that one. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
