1. Eat better, more healthful food (healthy food is food that isn't sick) in my daily diet. This really means eating a regular healthful breakfast and eating more frequently with smaller portions. And not eating after 7pm.
2. I would also like to switch from coffee to green tea and other teas. No more coffee.
3. Include a genuine warm-up, cool-down, and post run stretch session into each run.
4. Run on a plan. This means utilizing several different run types each week: long, tempo, interval, and speed, etc.. Also, at least one run per week will be a natural run with no electronic gizmos, no time, speed, distance, route plan --just run for fun. Strict adherence to 10% rule!
5. Build in cross-training including bike spinning.
6. Find and develop a running partner/group.
7. Volunteer at a race (at least one).
8. Health permitting, complete a marathon.
9. Health permitting, complete a stride and ride or similar biathlon event.
10. Continue to blog and be thankful for followers.
11. Spend more time with this guy.
12. That should do it. Any more and I'll wind up knitting my own clothes or something.
I took this past week off to try to let the calf rest. Went out this morning and it cramped up after one mile then I had to limp home. Two weeks ago I was slamming 6 and 7 milers. Not happy. Home-spun therapy continues. Anyone have experience with calf compression sleeves? I doubt it will be ready for RnR AZ. C'est la vie.
