With August coming to a close last week, it’s time to think forward to September, and that means thinking about 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 August:
Start a training plan for Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia
I’m currently in week 6 of training and it’s been going well overall. I can’t believe that the races are next weekend!
Take 2-3 spinning classes per week
I’ve really been enjoying the Peloton bike and taking spinning classes at the gym. I hit my 2-3 classes target every week in August.
Enjoy my vacation time!
My staycation last week was really good and I came back to work feeling rejuvenated. Of course that only lasted a few hours into the work day yesterday, lol. But it’s okay, it was still a nice break.
Here are my goals for September!
Do PT exercises daily
I have definitely been slacking with this over the past few months, but I need to make that a priority now. With my hip pain on my long runs, and some new knee pain, I know that I need to get back to basics. I’ve been setting aside 10-15 minutes every day to get in some basic PT exercises. I hope that it will pay off in the long run.
Plan another racecation
Last week I went through my vacation time and I have a good amount to use up before the end of the year – yikes! I saved my all the money from my work bonus back in April so I thought I’d treat myself with another racecation. Now I just need to pick a race!
Read a running related book
To be honest, I haven’t done as much reading as I would have liked this summer, but that doesn’t mean I can’t get more reading done in the Fall. I haven’t selected a book yet, so if you have any recommendations, please let me know!
Did you have a good August? If you set monthly goals, what are your goals for September?
