This week’s Tuesday Topic: What’s your plan to achieve your 2023 goals? You can write about this topic or post any running-related blog post. Remember to link up with Kim and Zenaida! Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!
In December I wrote about my 2023 goals. Let me tell you how I plan to achieve these goals.
Complete 500 Peloton rides. To date, I’ve done 359 classes. I need 141 additional classes which is about 12 classes per month. It can be done.
Run 800 miles. It was tempting to make this number again 1,200 or 1,000, but who am I kidding? I want to be a bit more realistic. 800 miles is about 67 per month. I am starting slowly and hopefully can soon ramp up the mileage. I know someone that has a goal of 2,023 miles, but it includes running and walking. That is tempting too!
Run at least 5 races. I am signed up for two but have been eyeing a couple more: 4 on the 4th of July, Lakefront 10 Miler, and Soldier Field 10 Mile. I also need to start looking into my goal of running a half marathon in each state. I have 8 more to go: South Carolina, Kansas, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, Idaho, New Mexico, and Hawaii.
Do one Peloton activity each day. Many of you know this but there are many Peloton classes. On the days I don’t run, I take either a walking or meditation class. I know I can do more. Once I figure out a schedule, I will add cycling, strength training, and stretching classes.
Read 12 books. One book a month. I am on book 2 and we are halfway through the month. If you need book suggestions, definitely check out Wendy’s book reviews. I’ve loved all of the ones I’ve read, some more than others.

Oh, you only have 8 more states to go? That’s so close!
With all the training and the races on your plan, I’m sure you will reach your annual mileage goal.
Go for it, Zenaida!
Thanks so much, Catrina! I love how positive and encouraging you always are.
I decided on 2023 km this year and I feel it’s a tad bit ambitious again! BUT if I just stay consistent (especially through winter which is June – August here) then it’s doable! Can’t wait to see you do those 8 states! Is it strictly a Half or would any distance count?
It has to be a half.
I’d like to eventually have run in every state, but no preference as to if it’s a race or just hitting the pavement. I have about 35 states to go, though, LOL (I’ve been to many more states, I just haven’t actually run in them). Good luck with your ’23 goals 😉
Just running in a state is a fun goal! Do it!
Sounds like a great plan of action to achieve those goals. Good luck and have fun!
You’re starting off the year strong and i have no doubt that will continue for all of 2023!
Thanks for the support, Kim!
I think it’s so smart of you to break it down like this into reachable goals. You’re setting yourself up for success and I can’t wait to hear all about your progress!
I think your goals seems very realistic-you can do it. I bet you would really enjoy the Peloton stretch classes post run
Thanks for the vote of confidence!
