Happy Friday! Can you believe that we started another month yesterday? I don’t know about you, but this summer is flying by. Not that I’m complaining since I already cannot wait to experience Fall weather 🙂
Since it’s the start of a new month it’s time to list my monthly goals for August.I love setting monthly goals to keep myself accountable throughout the year.
First, let’s take a look at my goals from July:
Continue the Peloton #CrushYourCore Program
I finished the program and am still repeating some of the classes because I really like adding a quick core workout after completing some of my workouts.
Complete the Peloton Summer Launch Challenge
This is an unofficial A+, only because the app didn’t register one of my classes earlier in July. Therefore Peloton is showing that I missed a day and didn’t complete the challenge, but I know I did a stretching class that morning. I was having major issues with the app that day so I’m not surprised.
Dial in my Nutrition
Although I did much better with making smart eating choices in July, there’s always room for improvement! I was able to meal prep more consistently which always helps me to make smarter choices, especially at work.
Here are my goals for August!
Run 100 miles
I was very close to hitting 100 miles last month so I’m confident I can do so this month. This would be my first 100 mile month in over a year.
I’m taking off work for a week this month for another staycation. Although I wish I was going someplace tropical, I’ll settle for doing some summer cleaning (as opposed to spring cleaning). I’m sure I’ll also find some items that I no longer use that can either be donated or sold on eBay. I hate clutter so I try to do these types of cleaning twice a year.
Focus more on recovery
I always take one rest day a week on Fridays since that’s the day before my long run, but I need to be better about recovery during the week. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t always stretch and foam roll after every single workout. Sometimes I do forget, but most of the time it’s just me bing lazy. As the miles increase this month, I want to make sure I give my body more TLC.
That’s it for this month – wish me luck!
If you set monthly goals, what are your goals for August?
