Still Lazy But New Goals in Mind

So, it has been a while, and yes the motto remains the same, I am lazy and unmotivated. Now that the year has nearly ended, have I achieve all that I set out to. In a nutshell, no I haven't. I was due to run in the fall classic in November, I transferred out of the 1/2 Marathon to the 10km, and then the weekend that the event was to occur, my adorable BF talked me out of running. This mainly due to me being very cripple and barely being able to walk without wincing in pain. I am all recovered now and am now setting goals for 2010. Will I be motivated next year and will I complete all the goals that I set out to achieve. I don't know, but I know that I will start the new year with a positive attitude and will not put any pressure on myself to achieve goals that are too far out of my reach. I know that my friend W & I were tossing up which Sprint Triathlon to complete in. But I think that my goals will have to change. My main priority is to take care of myself and take one step at a time. The first thing that I have registered in is the BMO Vancouver 1/2 Marathon. My goal in that is to compete it in 2 hours 30 minutes - only 7 minutes off my previous time in the 1/2 but I am being realistic. Another thing is that I will also complete in the Vancouver Sun Run 10km. I will competing in that race with my BF MJ. I would also like to complete in a full marathon, but I will make up my mind in the new year. I have a bit of a conundrum, will I compete in the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll full marathon or will I compete in the Scotiabank 1/2 Marathon, as they are both on the same week. If I chose not to run in the Seattle Full Marathon, I have the alternate choice to run in the Victoria BC Full Marathon, all these races sound so appealing. I have brought a few books on running and training and will start to journal my progress. However, first things first though, on January 1st, 2010 I will be doing the polar bear swim with MJ, this is to start the new year off with a giant leap. My new mantra for the new year.....I will strive to be the best me that I can be...............
