Happy Friday! I hope that the new month is treating you well so far. I have to say that August is probably my least favorite month because it always seems super hot and humid. I’m hoping that’s not the case this year (fingers crossed)!
July was a busy month but I was really happy with the amount of workouts that I was able to complete, and I hit all of my goals. Let’s see what August will bring!
First, let’s take a look at my goals from July:
Complete the Peloton Summer Launch Challenge
Happy to report that I completed the Peloton Summer Launch Challenge and I also racked up a few badges for other challenges in July as well:
-Pelothon 5/7 Challenge: Awarded for working out 5 of 7 days during week 3 of Pelothon
-Summer Launch Challenge: Take one class daily for 30 days in July
-July Cycling Challenge (Gold): Completed 181.5 miles (needed 150 miles)
-July Running Challenge (Gold): Completed 65 miles (needed 40 miles)
-Pelothon Live Class Challenge: Awarded for taking any two live classes during week 2 of Pelothon
-July Activity Challenge (Gold): Completed 31 days (needed 15 for Gold)
You could say I spent a lot of time with Peloton in July, lol.
Plan out workout schedule for the week
This has been working out really well for me and I will definitely continue to do it moving forward. It helps me take a look at the week ahead to make sure I have a mix of cardio and strength. One issue I’ve had since working from home is that I want to do ALL the workouts because I have more free time in the mornings, but I know that overdoing it will be a recipe for disaster in the form of an injury, and no one wants that!
Complete the Quad-City Times Virtual Bix7
I can tell that I haven’t been doing any long runs because this 7 mile virtual race was a bit of a struggle. The one thing that helped me to keep plugging along (in crazy humidity) was the fact that I knew I was running “virtually” with some pretty kick-ass women!
Here are my goals for August!
Complete the OTF #BackAtITChallenge
I took 2 weeks off from OTF, but I still think I have time to complete this challenge (it has to be completed by August 31). I just have to complete 7 more studio workouts and 3 more outdoor workouts to finish up the challenge. This was a really fun way to get back into the groove of OTF and I hope they offer more workouts like this moving forward.
Run 100 miles
I haven’t run 100 miles in a month since September 2019, so almost a year! Last month I ran 80 miles so I think I can log 100 miles in August. I’m still enjoying my lower mileage months so this will just be a goal for August.
Do yoga classes 2x a week
I still don’t love yoga, but I’ve been trying to do it more often to help my body recover after hard workouts. I feel like I ask a lot of my body with the different classes that I do so it’s only right to slow down and give it some proper TLC!
That’s it for this month – wish me luck!
If you set monthly goals, what are your goals for August?
