First, let’s take a look at my goals from July:
Conquer the Stair Climber Machine (20 minutes)
It just didn’t happen this month, but I will make this an unofficial goal for August.
Have a blast at RnR Chicago
RnR Chicago was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. The whole weekend was filled with miles, smiles and new friends. I loved every minute of it.
Get back into a workout routine
I’m finally back into a groove and loving it!
I had 12 blog posts (including this one) in July which averages out to 3 posts a week and I’m happy with that!
Use collagen products daily
I’ve been using Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen everyday and loving it so far. I also notice that if I use it in my afternoon cup of tea, I don’t need an afternoon snack because the collagen has so much protein.
Here are my goals for August!
Start a training plan for Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia
I wrote out my 7 week training plan yesterday so I’m feeling better about this. My training will consist of a mix of running, strength training and spinning. I’m thinking of adding more spinning because that really helped me with my endurance in the past. I’m also toying with the idea of running the 5k, 10k and half marathon that weekend, but I probably won’t make a final decision on that until the beginning of September.
Take 2-3 spinning classes per week
As mentioned above, I’m going to try incorporating more spinning classes into my weekly workout routine. since I’m only running 3 days a week, this should not be too hard to do. Back when I got my half marathon PR, I was teaching spinning twice a week and taking my favorite instructor’s class once a week. I noticed that my stamina was amazing during that time, so I’m hoping to recreate the magic.
Enjoy my vacation time!
I’m taking off from work the last week of August and I cannot wait. I feel like I really need this break, especially since work is going to be insane in August. As of right now I don’t have any travel plans, so it may just end of being a staycation, but that’s okay with me. I really want a week off to do absolutely nothing.
Do you set monthly goals? I love doing these posts every month because it helps to hold me accountable, especially with my yearly goals. Sometimes it’s easy to get a little lazy with all of the day-to-day responsibilities that we have, but I always try to make my health a top priority
Did you have a good July? If you set monthly goals, what are your goals for August?
