Do you believe in New Year’s Resolutions?  If yes, 2012 is just five days away… have you made your list?

I have signed up for the DailyMile 1,000 mile challenge. That’s it… so far.

Can I start a resolution Feb 1? I am interested in trying to run 365 consecutive days but realistically… I can’t do this until Feb 1 (previous commitments rule this out before the year starts).

My Checkpoint! for the week:

–  Last week: I had a light week, running just 17 miles.  I ate too many sweets and tortured myself Christmas day by getting on the scale only to discover that I didn’t gain one pound (woohoo).
–  DailyMile December 100 mile challenge: 87 miles
–  Stretching: fair
–  Nutrition: Surprisingly well considering it’s Christmas week.  That said, I can’t wait to get all the sweets and snacks out of the house.

Fitness challenges:  I need to find a way to fit in 15-30 minutes of stretching.  I’m only in week two of training and my left hipflexor is extremely tight (the entire leg actually).

This week: Training officially kicks off this week.  Training plan: 4, 5, 6, 8, 5

This is a weekly post through March (race day is March 24th).  Leave a comment with an update on your week or leave your blog/post link below.  I will cheer you on!
