Going Public

Ha! Do you like my title? No, this post has nothing to do with the status of my blog. But, I decided it was time to 'go public' with a few of my fitness goals for the year. I know myself, and know that I work much better under pressure. So, I figure that if I announce my goals, than I will be more apt to actually accomplish them!

I have two hopefully achievable goals:

1) Run 200 miles
2) Be able to do the splits (front and back, not sideways) by my birthday!

Like I said -- achievable -- I'm reaching for the sun (the stars are too far away). I just came back from a good 5 mile jog/walk, and my total is now at 90. I'm just a few days away from 1/2 way through the year, so I'm just a little behind. However, I took the months of March and April off due to lack of sleep, so I think I'll make it.

My friend Liz ran 800 miles last year. She inspired me to set a goal this year. So, after realizing that I go to the gym and do cardio classes (dancing, weight training, etc) 3 times a week, I knew I wouldn't be able to come anywhere close to 800. So, 200 is my goal. Little steps.

As far as the splits -- I've NEVER been able to do them. So, why now? I've been going to a dance class each week and we do these great stretches when we are done. I started noticing a month or so ago that I was getting pretty flexible. So... I turned it into a silly little goal for me.

I promise to post a picture around my birthday (end of October) of me doing the splits -- just to prove that I have achieved it (assuming I have by then).

Well, thanks for indulging me and my desire to 'go public' with my silly goals!

Sorry about the canceled comment. I noticed a typo. Can't wait to see you doing the splits. What a great goal!

I love your goals! I look forward to pictures!

Just had a funny picture pop into my head, remember Forrest Gump when he was running and running and running. Oh the image that came to my mind was what he looked like at the end, when he decided he had run enough! Random I know, but that's what came into my mind. I chuckled a little bit!

Ti si ena neverjetna punca, pa saj si zmeraj bila! Ne dvomim, da boš dosegla cilje. Uf, jaz bi si morala kak cilj postaviti glede trebuha - še vedno ga imam od nosečnosti...
