December and 2010 Rewind ...

Like I mentioned last week, 2010 was a fabulous year for me. I made HUGE strides in all areas of my life and rid myself of some serious negative energy. I'm in a good place. Not at all where I thought I would be this time last year, but I'm very happy with how everything has played out. And on that positive note, I give you my December and 2010 recap ...

Miles Planned/Miles Ran: 162/198.43

Rest Days Planned/Rest Days Taken: 8/8

Highest Mileage Week: 11/20-12/26: 44.1 miles

Long Runs Planned/Long Runs Completed: 4/4

Donuts Burned: 130 (my favorite statistic on Dailymile)

Current Book: Our vacation to Disney allowed me to get a little reading in this month. During the trip, I read Bart Yasso's My Life on the Run, which was FANTASTIC and a must-read for anyone looking for a little inspiration.

And last week, I started Racing Weight by Matt Fitzgerald, which was sent to me by Marlene. I am halfway through it and when I am done, I will be passing it along to another blogger. Shoot me an email if you are interested ...

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: I Used to Be Fat (on MTV). There is just something about watching people try to lose weight that draws me in every time.

Current Colors: Chocolate and Lime

Current Drink: Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla Coffee. With the temperatures dropping, I find myself drinking it non-stop just to stay warm.

Current Song: We Are Who We Are - Ke$ha

Current Triumph: My 1:14 5K PR last weekend. It was awesome to see all the the miles I've logged pay off and has given me some serious confidence heading into marathon training.

Current Goal: I've got a lot of them right now. New year, new goals. But in the immediate future, I want to run this month's 15K at goal half marathon pace or faster.

Current Blessing: Pretty much everything. And I don't take that for granted.

Current Excitement: 2011. January always feels like the fresh start to a future full of possibilities. I plan on doing everything in my power to live the life I aspire to this year.

2010 in Numbers:
Miles Covered: 1808
Time Spent: 299 hours, 43 mins

Highest Mileage Month: August - 208.42

I just started watching I use to be Fat, too. That kind of stuff really inspires me (I know it may sound silly). It's a good show.

Aron said...

A great month to end off a great year! Happy New Year!

I would definitely be interested in the book if you haven't found someone yet! I have been wanting to read it for so long but haven't bought it.

2010 was PR crazy for you! Great job.

I love that you got all your miles in with all your rest days. Your ability to plan and stick to it is envy inducing!

Here's to a great 2011

Great numbers for 2010 congrats on an amazing effort. Where do you find the time while raising a family?

Reading your results is very motivational.

Becka said...

Congratulations on an awesome year! I have a feeling 2011 is going to be equally spectacular for you!

And that 5k PR was on the treadmill, wasn't it??? I definitely think you'll pull out an even better PR when you have the race adrenaline going. :-)

MCM Mama said...

2010 was a great year for you! I am absolutely positive you are going to rock 2011!

Amazing year! Simply amazing!!!

Total guilty pleasure-can we talk about The Biggest Loser show???? It's my fav and it's actually what inspired me to start running. A few seasons ago, they had that 500 pound contestant that ended up winning the whole thing, when he ran his first 5K straight through without stopping and he was a jillion pounds overweight, I said, I can do this if THAT guy can do it. No more excuses.

So psyched to have you back! HOpe disney was super amazing!
