Goals 2022 – Half Year Update


2022 New Year Goals Checklist. Future Goal And Plans. 3435777 Vector Art at Vecteezy

At the end of 2020, I set 15 goals for 2021. In 2022, I decided that it would be cool to keep those 15 and add 7 more. So 22 for ’22.

It’s 6 months into 2022. Let’s see how I am doing so far:

1.Run at least 3 miles twice during the week.

For the most part, THREE times during the week ALL year. And always outside.

2. Go for a walk or hike on non-running days.

Just occasionally.  During the Pandemic, there was not much to do.  I hiked 100 trails in 2020.  Now when I don’t run, I don’t feel the need to get out there.  And rarely unless I’m with a friend.

3. Run long on the weekend (10 miles if able).

Pretty much every weekend.  But not necessarily 10 miles.  It may only be 6-8 miles. Or just a 5k race.

  1. You nearly nailed all your goals, Darlene! Great job.
    Speed work: I think you should count your races as speed work. You race nearly every weekend, so you do quite a lot of tempo runs!
    Why was the mentoring disappointing?

  2. Your goal are GREAT, and you’re doing great at them so far. I agree with Catrina- races can be counted as speed work. That’s probably while you’re doing so well. I mean- we all could be faster than we are, and maybe if you did dedicated speed work you would be faster- but your paces are good and you frequently place in your AG, so… if you’re happy doing what you’re doing, you should keep with it. Oh, and congrats on not being sick or injured! I would say 2022 is going well for you.

  3. You are well on. track with your goals this year! My weekend long runs are a little shorter than I would like right now mostly due to heat. I need to up those in August for our half in October. It will be here before we know it!

  4. Great job with your goals! I have some things going on in my personal life I haven’t gotten into on my blog so I made the decision in the spring to not make any major goals for this year. Next year will hopefully be a different story, however!

  5. Well, I’m at 10 races/events thus far for ’22, but one had to be virtual (Key West in January). I don’t have much on the calendar for the remaining six months (yet), but there are a few that I just haven’t officially paid for yet. I need to do a major closet (and running gear) purge…famous last words, huh!

  7. Wow, 22 goals! Glad to see you’re hitting them all. I don’t think I set any formal goals for this year except to run all those races that were postponed due to the pandemic. I sure didn’t expect them to all fall into place within 5 weeks, tho!

  8. Great job with your goals! Your fall trip sounds really fun – we want to head back up to New England this fall but haven’t planned anything yet!
