I do wish I could tell you that I have signed up for a few races. I have not. I am still waiting for the weather to improve so I can resume running. We are supposed to get more snow tomorrow. 🙄 One of my goals this year is to do 300 Peloton rides. As of yesterday I am at 193 leaving me with 107 to go. I thought about changing it to 400 but who knows how it will be once I start running again. I know I won’t take a class everyday.
These are not exactly bucket list items but they’re a few things I want to get done or continue this Winter.
❄️ Continue to use the Peloton bike. I know I’ve mentioned before that Camila is my favorite instructor. I do prefer her Spanish classes than the English classes. She has 85 classes and I’ve taken 35 leaving me with 50 more to go. I cannot keep up with her! Even if I take one of her classes per day I won’t be done till maybe May. And then I also need to take into consideration her newer classes. Why did I wait so long?
❄️ Look for another 50k. I would like to do one in the Chicago area.
❄️ Train and run the Fargo Half Marathon. OK, so this one isn’t technically in the Winter but training needs to start soon (the race is May 21). I am not signing up yet because I don’t know what the situation will be like in May. I thought airfare would be more expensive but it isn’t. I checked on Sunday and it was $318 roundtrip. But add in hotel, a rental car, and race registration and I am looking at least $500. I guess I shouldn’t complain since I haven’t paid for any races, lodging, etc., in 2 years. My last race was in Atlanta in 2020.
❄️ The last item is this 🏠. I know you are all tired of hearing me talk about it so I won’t.
Topic for next week – Your six favorites of 2021. Feel free to write about this or any running related topic. We hope you’ll link up with us!
