I know I’m at least one tick off center compared to the normal population. I like it that way.
Most normal people think about New Year’s Resolutions around the end of December, after the holiday binge weeks of roughly November 20 through December 31. I’m thinking of New Year’s Resolutions now.
For me, the New Year begins after the Fall Fun Season ends. Fall Fun Season is when I enjoy all of my hard-earned race fitness by doing fun adventures with no training goals and few planned workouts. This is a nice way to celebrate the change of seasons. The days are getting shorter and snow will soon arrive in Colorado. When the snow and cold settle in, my habits change.
So now, late September and early October, I’m beginning to look forward into the next 12 months.
I’ve been pondering some of these things in the last couple of weeks. Nothing is written down yet, but I’m close.
Maybe you want to get a jump on January by beginning your resolutions and goal setting now?
