As you all know, I believe in SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely). I realized in the last few months, that I lost sight of this. I slacked off because I wasn't reaching for anything. I didn't have any goal in mind or in sight, other than 'don't be so heavy'. That is not enough. It needs to be something I can reach out and taste and it needs to be in a time period that doesn't seem like it is so far in the future that I won't see any wins in the near future. I need wins people.
My goal is to train for the next 15 weeks for a half marathon. April 17, 2011, I will run the Unite Half Marathon at Rutgers University. To do this, I am going to follow Hal Higdon's half-marathon training program. I will measure my performance by completing the required miles, strength and cross training regimen. I will document my fitness progress on Daily Mile.
I will continue to use HMR program to eat around 1200+ calories per day. I will document my food intake in my journal.
