It’s kind of hard to think about 2020 goals, especially from where I’m sitting with an ankle full of metal and a walking boot. However, ’tis the season, and I think having some clear-cut goals will be beneficial to me.
Lose the Boot.
First and foremost, I have to get out of this boot. My goal date is January 20, and I am doing everything in my power to to accomplish this task. I know I’ll be much happier in a lace up brace, than clomping around in this awful apparatus.
Relearn How to Drive.
This isn’t a fitness goal, exactly, but this girl needs her independence back. I didn’t mind not being able to drive in the early days of my accident when I didn’t want to go anywhere anyway, but now it’s starting to grate. Mr PugRunner has been a freaking rockstar as far as handling everything, but having to ask for rides and making sure it meshes with his schedule is demoralizing.Julian Hochgesang
Maintain my Weight Loss.
I told you that dropping some weight was an unexpected side effect of my accident. Well, losing weight has never been a hardcore focus of this blog, nor has it been a primary goal, but I may as well capitalize on the natural consequence. Since November 23, I have really given up most snacking, and I haven’t even been super into dessert. I used to eat ice cream every night, but I can’t tell you the last time I had some. Am I missing it? Not really. No point in reintroducing habits that are no longer in my regimen.David Calavera
Run a Half Marathon.
I haven’t run a half marathon in a while, and obviously any plans for an early 2019 race were pretty quickly dashed. One of my friends suggested I join her for the St. Jude Memphis Half Marathon and I think that’s going to be the one. I have until December 2020 to train, it’s in a new (to me) state and it’s for a great cause. Mr PugRunner said that when I talk about this race, my face lights up, so I know it’s a great goal.
Run 500 Miles.
While it’s a huge setback, from my days of 1000 mile goals, 500 seems reasonable. My PT team seems certain that I will be back to running so I am going to old myself accountable to that.
Reach 200 9Round Workouts.
This one is actually a little scarier. The idea of slamming my leg into a heavy bag fills me with dread. However, I love and miss kickboxing and how strong it made me feel. I want to recapture that feeling and get myself back.
Pay It Forward
My family has been the recipient of so many kindnesses and blessings since the day I fell. Sometimes, it’s overwhelming to even think about it. In 2020, a big goal is to pay all that kindness back and forward. Giving of ourselves to others is truly the heart of humanity and community, and I hope I am worthy of the task.
