Juuune, she’ll change her tune… – 2014 Resolution Check-In

My title is stolen from April Come She Will – great song. Who doesn’t love some Simon & Garfunkel? Anyways, not to be confusing, I know it’s July, but this post is recapping my goals through June, so it makes sense. Plus, in June I got to the point of the year when I started asking myself why I wanted to do some of these things in the first place which makes the lyric even more appropriate. Because I’m changing my tune. Get it?

Anyways, let’s see where I’m at (detailed list here).

 1. Complete a 1/2 Marathon in Under 2 Hours – SUCCESS! 4.27.2014


I just keep this same pic in every resolution post. You didn’t remember that until I mentioned it, did you?

2. Keep up with my Running Blog – SUCCESS! – I’m killing it at this one.

3. Run a Marathon – Ummm, errrr….we’ll see. I MAY BE CHANGING MY TUNE. 

4. Keep a Running Journal – Success? I did this for 3 weeks. I hated it. For quite awhile I thought I should try again, but I don’t think I’m going to. I think the training log I have is too intense for me, and it ended up making me feel bad about myself.

5. Join a Running Club – I emailed someone about this; that’s progress! 

6. Volunteer – Nothing on this front. If I manage to ever get myself to a running club, they will have races for me to volunteer at.

7. Run 1000 miles – I was at 444 miles by the end of June, so I have a little ground to make up. This is another goal I changed my tune on; originally it was to run 2014 km (1250 miles). 

8. Beat Jeff’s 5k PR – Currently I have no plans to train for this effort, so we’ll see how that goes. 

So, that’s my progress so far. I don’t think I’ll be crossing any off the list this month since I haven’t yet and July is already half over. (True to the song again! – July, she will fly, and give no warning to her flight). But I’ll make some more progress towards my 1000 miles goal, and maybe also the run club one.

How are you doing on your resolutions? Done yet? Change any? And isn’t it crazy how much sense that song made in my post?

    • I love setting goals. I know that while I work towards them they may change or stop being important to me, but I still like having a list.

  1. I second making some mid year goals. I started running in January and had no goal other than to run a 5K. Now I’m training for a half marathon – goal there is to just finish. Come December, with a year of running under my belt, I’ll have so much more to think about and challenge myself with.

  2. SO much love for Simon and Garfunkel! ❤ The song choice was perfect for this post 🙂

    Congrats on completing 2 (and a half – emailing about a running club should count a little!) goals! Not bad at all for half a year!

    I've completed 1 of my 3 resolutions for this year… I know I'll complete the second but the third I'm not sure about (getting my 5K time under 30 minutes). I hope I can anyway!

    • I’m glad you liked the song. Once I decided to call the post that, I listened to a whole bunch of Simon and Garfunkel, and was reminded how much I love them!

      Even if you don’t get your 3rd resolution this year, as long as you’re making progress, it should count as partly complete. You have lots of time before the end of the year though, lots of time speed work!
