arbitrary.

I have this new arbitrary goal. Well, I've sort of had this arbitrary goal and obsession since July. Either way. It is that I run 100 miles a month. Not a huge feat by any means, but compared to where I was most of last year, it's pretty decent. When I was taking time off, healing from multiple injuries, indulging in lots of pouting and even more eating... In the context of that? It's a pretty nice and attainable goal that will keep me motivated when I have zero races to train for.

As long as I run 6 miles tonight after work, my arbitrary goal will have been met every month since July. I plan to keep it up through December and all of 2011, especially as I transition back into marathon training in January. Yes, lots to discuss. More on all of that later. I have lofty goals for '11 in mind.

Speaking of goals, I have two more chances (two if need be) to finish up and meet my 2010 goal of getting a PR in every major race distance. I am doing a 5k in two weeks, and if that one doesn't go well, I can always hit up the New Years Eve 5k. I'm hopeful I can swing it on the next race though.

In that regard (the 2010 PR goal), clearly since I only have a 5K PR left to snag, that means I PR'd at Gobbler Grind! I've started a post, but honestly just lost motivation to write it. For now I'll share that I met and exceeded both my "safe" PR goal of 1:57 and and my "oh i would pee my pants from joy" goal PR that was in my head of 1:54. Apparently I had a good day. And peed my pants...

Awesome on the 100-mile months too.

Can't wait to see what's up for '11!

Loving you.

That's an awesome accomplishment (the PRs, not the pee!).

I think you get a double awesome there. Excellent job on the pee-inducing PR AND the 100 mile months. I don't think I've hit 100 since Spring!
