Goal for 2008

In an earlier post I misspoke. I said I am a runner. I should clarify. I am a jogger. Maybe soon that will turn into “runner” but I shouldn’t give myself more credit than I deserve. As I was jogging this weekend I thought of Bridget Jones when she talked about “her wobbly bits”. That’s what I felt as I was schlepping through snow, slush and ice. My wobbly bits were jiggling and it was making me quite uncomfortable. So now I am on a mission. I don’t want these wobbly bits any more. I am done with them. I was inspired (by Lulufabulous when she did this) to sign up for my own challenge, something to motivate me. And I found a goal I’m sure I can accomplish in 2008. It’s also through Nike Running. My goal is to run (jog) 1000km in 2008, that’s 621 miles for the year. Easy Peasy! I figure if I run (jog) 3X/wk at 3miles/run(jog) that’s…..9miles/week X 52 weeks/year= 468 miles for the year. That’s not 621 miles, but my goal is to work up to 6miles/run (jog) 3X/week so I KNOW I can make up the remaining 153 miles no prob. Who knows maybe by 2009, I can call myself a “runner”.

BTW I have found a great website for mapping runs. It’s http://www.mapmyrun.com/
I used it to map my run(jog) and found I am currently jogging 2.5 miles. Nike has a similar version but I think this one is more user friendly. So I have logged 7.5 miles for the year. I have some running(jogging)to do. Let the jogging begin.

*As a side note, I just realized in signing up for these challenges I am supposed to have the shoes that sync with my i-pod. Crap. Well, I hate Nike shoes, they hurt my feet so I won’t be syncing any runs. I’ll just know in my heart that I have accomplished my goal. Stupid Nike marketing campaign!

  1. Wow! We are on the same wavelength, even down to the forgetting about having to have Nike shoes! No matter – like we both said, in our hearts, we’ll know. I’m thinking maybe I should have done the 1000 kM instead, but … I’ll stick to miles for now, and we’ll see how that goes.
