Ever since Joel left for his business trip, I have had ZERO time to run. I figure I get 6 hours a week during the daytime hours to myself. I get a few hours each night, but by that time the kids are in bed and working out then is just not feasible. So, with six hours a week, my time is taken up with cleaning the house, working for the various businesses I contract with, showering, or running other errands that are easier to do without children (ie-pharmacy run, post office, etc). Something had to give, I just can not do it all.
But I got to thinking of when Joel returns, what are my goals. What is on my running bucket list?? Here is what I have come up with.
1. Run a 5k in under 30 minutes
2. Run in 10k in under 50 minutes
3. Run the "Finish on the Fifty" half-marathon in under 2 hours
4. Run the Nashville Half-Marathon in under 2:15 (it's a lot of hills, thus the slower time)
So, there you have it. Two half-marathons in three weeks, seems pretty ambitions. Of course it will be April 2012 when I get to run them, so hopefully starting next summer (2011) I can start getting back into the swing of things. But now that I have publicly stated my goals, here is to hoping in accomplishing them.
