Happy Friday! Well we made it through another week – congratulations 🙂 I’ll be honest that I haven’t given much thought to my goals for June. I feel like May kinda flew by and then earlier this week I realized that I never made any June goals..oops! I finally settled on a few goals for this month.
First, let’s take a look at my goals from May:
Hit my Century Ride with Peloton
Happy to report that I completed this last week. It was a fun but hard ride (tabata) and I’m already looking forward to my next milestone which will be 150 rides.
Complete the BibRave Run Streak
I was able to complete this streak by walking or running at least a mile everyday. I’ll never do a traditional run streak (running daily) but having the option to walk on days I don’t run is nice.
I was able to do a good amount of sightseeing in the Financial district and near the Seaport but I would love the chance to explore more of the city on a future visit.
Here are my goals for June!
Decide on a Chicago Marathon training plan
I can’t believe that I’m already talking about marathon training – why did I think I had more time??
This month I will decide if I want to do a 12, 14 or 16 week training plan for the Chicago Marathon. My last marathon training cycle was 12 weeks (Shamrock Marathon), which is considered to be short, but I had a great base going into training so I wasn’t starting from scratch. I just need to sit down with a calendar and put pen to paper and see what I want to do. I’m not running with a marathon PR in mind but I damn sure want a course PR!
Get in workouts while traveling
I honestly don’t travel that often for work, but June is very busy. I’m traveling every week in June (except for the week of June 17). Of course it’s always hard to fit in exercise when you travel and deviate from your normal routine, but I want to make sure that I still make time to get in my runs, etc. It’s important to me that I don’t lose any fitness between now and when marathon training starts.
Complete 2 morning workouts per week
Although I always do my long runs on Saturday mornings, I don’t do too many morning workouts during the work week. This is primarily because I start work at 7:30am. While I know I wouldn’t be able to do all my weekly workouts in the morning, I think getting in 2 morning workouts is manageable. I always feel great once I get my workout out of the way in the morning and it frees up my time after work as well.
If you set monthly goals, what are your goals for June?
