Happy Friday! How was the first week of July for you? Did you have a good 4th of July holiday yesterday? I definitely enjoyed a few drinks and some yummy food, but I also worked out yesterday morning so it’s all about balance 🙂
Since it’s the start of a new month it’s time to list my monthly goals for July.
First, let’s take a look at my goals from June:
Decide on a Chicago Marathon Training Plan
I have decided on a 14 week training plan that starts on Monday! It’s going to be an interesting training plan because this time I’m adding in OTF classes. I will need to make sure that I strike a good balance between strength training and running, but I’m up for the challenge!
Get in workouts while traveling
While I don’t travel for work that often, June was a very busy month. I was in Washington DC, Toronto and Nashville. I didn’t want the travel to derail my workouts so I made sure to utilize the hotel gyms.
Complete 2 morning workouts per week
I did 8 morning workouts during the work week to hit this goal. I feel like I’m going to keep this goal going all summer because it’s just nice to get workouts done early in the day. One less thing I have to worry about doing when I get home from work!
Here are my goals for July!
Continue the Peloton #CrushYourCore Program
After I finish the 4 week program this month, I will most likely do it again because I find it so easy to fit into my routine. Do a 5 or 10 minute core class 5x a week is certainly manageable and it will only make me a stronger runner!
Complete the Peloton Summer Launch Challenge
Similar to the Winter Launch Challenge, this is all about taking at least one Peloton class per day everyday in July. It can be any type os class – core, spinning, walking, outdoor running, treadmill, boot camp, yoga, meditation or strength. There’s thousands of classes to choose from so I should be able to accomplish this goal.
Dial in my Nutrition
With marathon training starting in a few days, now is the time to really dial in my nutrition. I haven’t been horrible these past few months, but there’s definitely some big room for improvement. One thing n particular I’m going to really focus on is making sure that I am hydrated throughout the day. I think that will help with some of the mid-day and late-night cravings that I have.
That’s it for this month – wish me luck!
