Happy March 1st! Can you believe that we’re starting another month today? Since it’s a new month, it’s time for new goals! 🙂
Do you set monthly goals? I love doing these posts every month because it helps to hold me accountable, especially with my yearly goals. Sometimes it’s easy to get a little lazy with all of the day-to-day responsibilities that we have, but I always try to make my health a top priority.
First, let’s take a look at my goals from February:
Do more workouts with weights/strong>
I really took this more seriously last month. I’ve also love strength training but this year I want to amp it up a bit. One thing that has helped me is adding some quick strength training workouts after my runs. Just 10-20 minutes is super helpful!
Set up a training plan for Hot Chocolate 15K Philly/strong>
I run this race in 5 weeks so my runs on Saturdays will now be a little longer. I actually found a 15K training plan online but the weekday runs seemed a little short to me so I modified those a bit.
Consistent pre and post run stretching
I was VERY consistent with this last month. Most of my stretches range between 5-10 minutes. I know that this is one way to stay injury free so I will continue to do this. The Peloton app makes it super easy since they have tons of pre and post workout stretches and they add new ones every day.
Here are my goals for March!
Hit 75 Peloton Cycle Rides
I think it’s time for me to hit another Peloton milestone! I had so much fun hitting 50 rides, it’s time to strive to hit 75 rides 🙂 My goal will be to complete my 75th ride during a live class on my birthday on April 1st.
Run 60 miles
My goal for the year is to be consistent and run at least 50 miles per month, but since I’m training for a race I would like to get up to at least 60 miles in March. I know it’s not a super high number but I’m taking baby steps! I still can’t believe that one month I hit 150 miles when marathon training. That seems like it was ages ago!
Daily Core Exercises
While I’m not going to do any type of challenge, I want to make sure that I get in daily core exercises. I’m thinking of mixing this up between planks, side planks, sit ups, crunches, etc. I have to start taking baby steps to becoming a stronger runner and a strong core is absolutely necessary. I want to dedicate 5 mins a day to core exercises with the hope that it will become a habit after I do it for 31 days 🙂
If you set monthly goals, what are your goals for March?
