This past week was another very successful week of training! I was able to maintain a sub 10:00 min/mile during both of my weekday runs, and then I PRed during my long training run over the weekend. Combine that with two yoga sessions this week, as well as two weight training sessions, and I’d say that this was a very productive week!
All of my recent successful runs, as well as my quickening pace, has me thinking a lot about what I’d like to accomplish next year. As I’m pondering possible races for next year, I’m also thinking a lot about what goals I’d like to accomplish. If I continue to have training weeks like this past week, it’ll definitely be difficult to narrow my goals down to just a few that I want to focus on in 2015!

Because we’ll be at Disney World starting on Friday, I’ll recap both weeks 5 and 6 of my half marathon training at the end of week 6. Although I’ll be taking it easy on the training front while we’re away, I’m still hoping to get a run or two in on the hotel treadmill. I’ll be packing my running shoes and hoping for the best!
QOTD: Have you started thinking about your 2015 goals yet? What are you hoping to accomplish next year?
