Looking at my activity log for the year 2012, I'm a little embarrassed. The movement numbers are a little low post-April. I'm glad I didn't log beer consumption, too, because that would probably beat running, biking, and walking put together! LOL
Nonetheless, I had some fun this year. In April, I ran a fantastic trail half marathon. The hubby and I did a little mountain biking, and I was a top contender in our office walking challenge this summer. We ran a naked 5k, the Color Run, the Grand Rapids Mud Run, and the Warrior Dash.
With the Grand Rapids Sport and Social Club, I played dodge ball, kick ball, broom ball, flag football, and volleyball. I also made some great new friends.
For the number lovers out there, 2012 saw:
102 miles of biking
352 miles of running
214 push ups
172 miles of walking/hiking
64 miles (or the equivalent) of other sports
The hubby is pretty much recovered from his back injuries earlier this year and is committed to getting into better shape in 2013. To that end, we are planning to sign up for the Tough Mudder in Detroit at the end of June. I'm very excited about this. I've been wanting to do this for a couple years now. I'm nervous about some of the crazy obstacles. The hubby is nervous about the 12-mile distance.
In 2013, we also plan to keep the traditions of the GR Mud Run and the Warrior Dash alive. We may throw in a Zombie Dash somewhere and maybe an adventure race. In any case, we should have some fun events to look forward to and some solid goals to keep us on the fitness track.
My vacation time over the last few weeks as been so renewing. Not necessarily restful, but I've embrased the free time to get out for some hikes, some weight lifting, some skiing, some snow runs. Work in 2013 is going to be crazy, but I am itching to maintain a good workout routine despite the fatigue of stressful office hours.
On the Paul B Henry Thornapple Trail today
Thanks for a great year, and welcome the new one! Happy New Year 2013!
