2018 By The Numbers Year In Review - Sweat Like Becky Edition

2018 was an interesting year.  I struggled a lot in June and I had a really bad race that month that made me contemplate quiting this sport and finding something else to occupy my time.  I actually told a friend that I was done after seawheeze because the struggle was real and my confidence was shit. I took 9 days off after that june race and started back up in July starting from zero.  It was the only way I could rehab my achilles and still be able to continue running.  I am glad that I ignored my thoughts and worked so hard all summer because it paid off.  I ran 3 more races after that awful June morning and I did really well and boosted my confidence like you would not believe.  It also helps to have a great support system and a physiotherapist who is the best in the business to get you fixed and ready for your next race. My goals for 2019 are at the bottom but basically I want to grow as a runner by getting stronger, muscular and leaner which should also make me a better human I hope too haha. 

900k - goal for km ran in 2018 
1075.49 - what I actually ran in 2018

I improved over every number except for bootcamp which ended half way through the year, I did 11 bike rides in both 2017 + 2018 and I did way more hiking in 2017 that I did this year. 

My goals for 2019 are to run 1200km, stay healthy so that means making sure I stretch, strengthen, roll and hydrate all the time!!! I want to build more muscle and get stronger to help make me a better runner and injury free.  I want to PR a half marathon and hopefully get into  Seawheeze.  I want to learn how to properly fuel my body as a runner and as someone who is turning 40 this coming year.  What are your goals for 2019??

Here is to making this year the best one yhet!
