I don’t make New Year’s resolutions generally. I’m an academic and so January 1st feels like midyear to me. Now, September, that’s the start of a new year.
But I like the idea of mini goals. See Jeff Galloway’s suggestions here.
I like the focus on things you can control, like this one: “In the last five to 10 minutes of your run, do something pleasant like looping twice around a beautiful block. Running bestows a sense of joy, so take advantage of such moments.”
I also like the idea of reviewing the year that was and planning ahead. I’m looking forward to the Pride Run and Kincardine (this time not a month after surgery!) and to the Bike Rally. (Please sponsor me here.)
I want to do another Algonquin adventure, maybe two even.
But what else? The Lakeside duathlon maybe. Maybe. If I stay running happily and avoid injury. Maybe a big bike ride, the MEC Century for sure, but possible also the The Three Port Tour and the Southwest Challenge.
What are your big events/races/adventures next season?
