Time to Get Uncomfortable

14 Jan

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.
