These girls are enablers, but I’m not objecting
In a related story, my phone completely died and Ben thought I was dead. He came looking for me. Isn’t that sweet?
We made last minute plans to do a roadtrip this weekend. I didn’t account for this when making my marathon training plan so I had to try and bust out a long run this morning.
I was supposed to do 14 miles, but my right leg was super tight and tired (???). I assume it’s from kickboxing yesterday, but isn’t it weird that it’s more my right than my left?
I spent a few miles worrying that I had a stroke.
I love Monday mini-goals, but I need more than just 7 days to get my sht together. So for the rest of 2011 I’ll be making monthly goals.
July 2011 Goals:
1. Stick to Marathon training program = 4 good runs a week/2 strength sessions/Yoga once. Document runs, strength and stretching. The key here is I have to start pushing myself past the hard parts of my runs.
2. No diet soda. This was one of my 2011 resolutions that I keep pushing aside. This month I’m all in.
3. Eat clean during the work week so I can listen to my body’s signals and not triggers or blood sugar spikes. (Eating clean is different for different peeps, I have my own little definition.)
If you have goals you want to document – HealthRally is a new site that allows you to announce them on their website and invite friends and family to support you.
The goal can be anything from quitting smoking to taking 3 walks a week. You get to decide your goal and your reward. If your supporters wish, they can contribute to your reward monetarily or they can donate money to a charity. If nothing else, sharing your goals with friends helps with accountability and moral support
I want to try and take 2 classes a week at the gym or yoga studio all month in July! I gave myself the reward of a new pair of running shoes if I do it. Wish me luck!
Got any goals for July? Any fun plans this weekend?
I’m still not even sure where we’re going, but Ben booked a hotel for tonight and we’re leaving right after work!
