Hello my friends,
I hope you all had a great Christmas and are now enjoying the last few hours of 2012. Seriously, when did this happen? December went by so fast, I didn’t even think about my New Year’s resolutions yet. I promise, they will be up by tomorrow. For now, let’s just look back at 2012 and how poor I did with my 2012 resolutions (I did really bad).
- Run 3 half-Marathons
I signed up for one half-marathon and started training for two, but haven’t run one. Looking back, I know that my whole running was an up and down this year. One week, I run for four times, the next I didn’t run at all. My motivation looked the same. I thought about running every single day, but I haven’t had it in my heart as often as I wanted it to be.
- Run a sub- 2-hour half marathon
Nope. Didn’t happen. WILL HAPPEN IN 2013.
- Decide if 2012 is the year of my first marathon
I spent the day of the Hamburg Marathon watching it on TV icing my knee. Injury came back big time that day.
The next 3 month were running-free, trying to get rid of the pain. The decision to not run was probably the smartest I did in 2012.
- Get my Bachelor-degree
- Visit Copenhagen
It’s still on my list, it will happen, sooner or later.
- Do outside climbing
My climbing club went climbing during exam week and shortly after, I moved back to Hamburg and haven’t done any climbing at all. I hope to do outside climbing, but it’s not in my focus right now.
- Read 12 books
Yay, a goal I accomplished! I read about 16 books. The one I liked a lot was “A Life without Limits” by Chrissie Wellington. The book I am reading right now is “Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall, and I love it so far!
- Try out Motions Boxing at my Gym
I went a couple of times and enjoyed it. The day after my first boxing class, I had the hardest time getting out of my bed, I was so sore. It was hard, but fun.
- Try out Boot camp at my Gym
I didn’t, but the trainer of Boot camp taught Motions Boxing a few times and made it very “bootcampish”. I knew it doesn’t count, but still!
- Try hot Bikram Yoga
I don’t know how this one got on my 2012 list. I can’t even stand the heat. Still, I think it would be nice to try out now that I actually live in a city were there is a Bikram Yoga studio.
I hope you all have a happy new year, may all your dreams and goals for 2013 come true!
