How Did I Do? Part Two

Here is how I fared with my 2009 fitness goals:

Get Faster - I did. I PR'd five distances this year: 1 mile, 5K, 8K, 10 miles and a 20K. It was painful and I'm still dealing with running through pain (but not a when pain is a broken foot!) - the mental aspect of it!

One of my specific Get Faster goals was to break 25 minutes in a 5K. I stated "I'd like to do a sub 25 minute 5K. If that means 24:59, then I'll take it." That's exactly what I got at the Run for Healthier Babies 5K in October.

I didn't get the 1:50 goal time for a half marathon. I'm not sure I could have done that with my intended Run to Victory Half (that I missed this month due to my stress fracture) but this may be a 'carry over' to next year's goals.

Lose 15 pounds - this did not happen. I gave up when I was working out like crazy, being in the best physical shape I've ever been in, in my life, and I was not losing pounds. I decided that I would no longer concentrate on the numbers on the scale.

Get a P90X body - not really but I am pleased with what took shape (pun intended) during my workouts. As stated above, I have been in the best physical shape ever. Sure, when I was a teenager and in my 20s I was thinner and I could eat anything and still have a flat stomach. But I didn't workout regularly, I didn't eat healthy and I smoked.

Running Coach for CJ and Sarah - I didn't do this. I intended to but after the holidays, we didn't pick it back up.
