And now, one of the things I loathe this time of year: that nagging question about a resolution for the new year. What do I resolve to do in 2012? Set goals instead of resolutions.
My least favorite time at the gym is January. Why? I can only assume it's because the majority of America resolves to "get in shape" or "lose weight" in the new year. Because of this, the gym is always packed for the first two to three weeks of the year while everyone is gung-ho and then, for whatever reason, by February the crowd thins out. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for people getting in shape and being healthier, but isn't a resolution supposed to be a year-long thing instead of a January-long thing?
So anyhow, I've given some thought to my running/workout goals for the coming year. Since I can't afford to register for many more races but I want to keep up my training, I've set a goal to run 700 miles in 2012. I've also set a "strength" goal of being able to do a pull-up. How it's possible that someone who works out so much cannot do a pull-up is a mystery to me. 2012 is the year. I will do it!
