Friday our Corporate Wellness Program solicited our New Year’s Resolutions. I thought about it for a few minutes.
Mostly, I want to continue on the same path I was on in 2011 – but I wanted something tangible to add. My decision: Compete in at least one running event at the Georgia Games. While the games aren’t heavily attended in Track and Field, I want to be able to be competitive for the distances I choose.
That’s going to mean committing to training in ways I haven’t been lately – short distance interval sprinting. First thing’s first – I’ll need to find a training program and get under way for the distances I choose.
I’m leaning towards the 400, 800 and 1500 meter distances. The 1500 is close to the mile (which I can run fairly well) and the two shorter distances are longer than all out anaerobic sprints of 100 and 200m. We’ll see once training starts.
Time to go fast.
