It's been a rewarding year. This weekend I'll wrap up my 12 week strength plan. This on the heels of a 6 week strength plan. The fact that my knees were able to handle 35+ weekly miles without a single complaint is a testament to sticking to the plans. I used 2011 to patiently rebuild my form. Not only have the knee problems abated, my body even looks different. Unexpected bonus but I'll take it. Thank you Eric for helping me get through this.
If 2011 was my transition year, 2012 is a year for reaching goals. I'm going to race "Rock the Parkway" this spring and then shoot for something substantially longer after that. Haven't settled on the distance or the race quite yet. The one thing I do know is that mind and body are finally on the same team. Can't wait to see what I can do.
Happy holidays. Dream big in the New Year!
