We’re officially half way into 2017. That still seems a little cray-cray to me, but I think everyone is feeling like this year is flying by! It’s the start of July so that means it’s time for some new monthly goals. Let’s discuss!
First, let’s take a look at my goals from June:
Establish a good post-run stretch routine
I’ll give myself an A+ for this one! I have a 10 minute routine that I do after every run. I’ll do a blog post about it later on this month.
Try new fueling products
Another A+ for this one because I tried Tailwind and Huma gels last month. Both were great and I didn’t have any GI issues. This month I want to try Generation UCAN products.
Read a new running related book
I’m giving myself a C for this one. I did try starting a new book when I was traveling to Chicago but realized that I didn’t like it after the first two chapters. I just started another book yesterday and I hope to finish that one, lol.
Here are my goals for July:
If you read my Runfessions post last week, you know that I’m trying to drop a few pounds. I’ve decided that July will be the month I really buckle down and get serious about that. I know that meal prepping will help with that!
Do some “Summer Cleaning”
I have a need for more simplicity so I’m going to do some “summer cleaning”, as opposed to spring cleaning, lol. I already started doing that this week and have a few bags of stuff to donate. It’s just amazing how much stuff you can accumulate over the years!
Balance life and marathon training
Recently I noticed that I’m getting in the habit of focusing solely on marathon training and I don’t want to do that because it’s no fun. This month I’m going to make sure I do some fun things, like meeting up with friends, going out to Happy Hour, etc. There’s gotta be a balance if I’m going to make it to October in one piece!
Do you set monthly goals? Do you have any goals for July?
