I'm a planner and while I have my three vacations scheduled for the year (and have for over a month), I have no racecations or even races scheduled yet. I'm actually contemplating only running this year. Running is so simple regarding planning and gear. Well, running outside in the winter takes some layering, and extra clothing accessories, but it is still the simplest of all three disciplines.
Anyway, on to the goals. I like to keep the number down as I'm a big fan of keeping things simple. Life is complicated enough.
Goal #1 - Run 1000 miles
Goal #2 - Do at least one plank a day, every day
Goal #3 - Stay under 160 pounds
Races - ???
Triathlons - ???
I may throw a few running races in on a whim and may even do a long weekend here or there and fly somewhere to race. Nothing definite. As a planner, it's amazing I'm good with this approach. I've been doing a decent amount of running (for me) and as a result, I've been running in mental zone 4 and 5 just about every weekend with a couple supporting runs during the week. I haven't been running with music either, no need for it in mental zone 5.
Any running races you consider must do? Any destination half or full marathons I should consider? Did I just say marathon? Yes, the thought keeps cropping back in my head and once that happens, becoming an MM or doing an ultra does too.
