Keeping Track

I was encouraged by Tracy to start tracking my miles in 2008! You'll notice in my sidebar that I'm all ready to start adding the numbers beginning January 1st! I'm super excited about doing this- basically because I'm a numbers freak and love to see progress!

Notice that there are three parts to this 'diary' of exercise: walking, running, and biking. Please make a mental note now, I do not bike. I would like to do a triathlon sprint this summer and I am told this involves biking... *grin* So, perhaps the miles may or may not increase on that little tab. We shall see.

I had dinner with my running team a couple weeks ago and we all decided to run another 1/2 marathon this spring. We'll do most of our personal runs indoors at the gym, but every weekend is our long run...come rain, sleet, snow or ice! Very "postal" of us. *smile*

I'm hoping to do at least six 5k's this year and planning on running the Columbus marathon again in October. Granted, I'll most likely do the 1/2 again, but this time my goal is not to end up in the med tent afterwards. Oh, the joy of a full year!

So glad you are joining in! Sounds like you have some great goals for this year. Hope you have a great year, I'm looking forward to following along with you. :)

I saw that on Wendy's site. I'm going to do it, too. But, like you, I'm not much of a biker. SO, I'm going to add rollerblading.

Yeah! Glad you are doing it! We just set up my treadmill so I can't wait to run on it! Although, it did snow yesterday so snowshoeing would be good too!

I should start keeping track of my treadmill miles. Should. I'll think on that. Could be good for motivation and accountability!
