Never doubted it for a moment....
Thanks for starting this Soup. Will you copy the goals into OP? Nice to have a record, but not a must have.
I'm gonna kick it off. I've decided not to escalate things further with my running this year. I think I'll do a 100 mile run sometime again in the future, but not in 2018. As I mentioned at the close of the last thread, I also got pretty un-fit in the last four months of the year as a kind of consequence.
Main thing for me this year is to complete the John Muir Trail (JMT) in August; a 240 mile hike through the Sierra Nevadas in California. All training is geared towards that. I'll be running a bit less, hiking a bit more, and doing bodyweight training a lot more. I've also really missed playing soccer this past couple of years, so I'm going to come out of retirement. Final thing; I want to avoid tailing off badly again, so here are my official goals:-
1. Complete JMT hike
2. Run a <2 hour HM again (it's been a while....)
3. Complete 2x 50+ mile ultras, one in a PB time
4. Get back to my fighting weight of 160 lbs @ 10% body fat (currently sitting at a record fat level of 180 lbs @ 17%)
5. Log 1500 miles of running this year. That was my first and hardest goal in the CB 2015 thread and it was a great way of keeping going through the year
Plan is to run thrice a week, go to the gym thrice, hike on a Sunday and play soccer a couple of times a week. Really going to clean things up with my nutrition as well; got really sloppy in the run up to Christmas.
Started 2018 with a bang. Ran 20 miles today. Good luck everyone!
