2010 was a great year for running.  Like I said in my goals post, I set a PR at every single race distance this year.  But, I ended the year up 17 pounds from my absolute lowest weight the end of April / beginning of May, and about 7 pounds higher than January.  So, the whole "intuitive eating" thing really didn't work out.  I am afraid to say that I have to start tracking my food again, at least for a few months.  I'm frustrated that I can't just eat like a normal person.

I pushed in December to make sure that I got 700 miles for the year.  This statistic really means nothing, but it gave me something to do.  My cold over Christmas made it so that I had to rush and get in a bunch of miles the last week of the year.  I did it, but now I am having some heel pain, and I hope I'm just a hypochondriac and I don't have some sort of overuse injury.  They're currently on ice, both heels.

I've been keeping up with my strength training workouts, although still not with the regularity and consistency that I would like.  I tried out my new bike trainer for the first time today, finally, and I'm pleased to say that it's great and I have some great ideas for doing lower body circuit workouts.  Very exciting.

So, yay for a great year!  I've also enjoyed reading everyone else's year end summaries, even if I didn't comment.  I know my 700 miles is low compared to almost everyone else!  Maybe that's why it was so randomly important...

congrats on a great year! i must say though that you shouldn't even think the tiniest bit about comparing yourself to other runners - we are all different in our abilities (injuries, time available, etc). it's not fair to you :) you rock! two consistent 700mile years in a row! and HELLO your pace improved by over 15secs/mile :)

I am behind but slowly catching up!!! You did have a great year! I agree with Lindsay about comparing but I also know how hard it is not to compare. I hope 2011 rocks as much as 2010 did!
