New Year’s Resolutions 2015

New Years Resolutions

Happy 2015!!

I’ve never made New Year’s Resolutions before. This year I really want to set intentions out loud  (to increase accountability) and commit myself to them. Here is what I came up with:

  1. Heal my ankle 100% before running
  2. Continue strength work so I stop spraining my ankle once a year
  3. Run another half marathon
  4. Run the NYC Marathon (ahhh!)
  5. Become a comfortable bike rider
  6. Workout in the mornings on the regular
  7. Find a workout regimen that works long term (since I’m not a gym member I’ve been paying per class and I’m starting to miss the built-in access a gym offers but I’m still uninspired in the gym options available)
  8. Embrace calm
That last one might be the hardest. I want to figure out a way to meet the above goals in a non-type A+ crazy person way. So maybe I should add yoga to the list?

What are your New Year’s rezzies? How did you ring in the New Year?


Happy 2015, everyone!

    A tip for ankle strenthening is to run on trails.

        I had a problematic ankle and I now do a regular 10k route on trails. It’s really helped. The uneven surface works out muscles in the ankles and thus strengthens the joint.

        Start very easy pace and the route should be uneven but should allow you to have a good rhythm running.
