Happy New Year once again! I hope that 2019 is off to a great start for you. I’ve been working hard to keep those Resolutions going along with a positive attitude – it makes a difference!

While I’ve already shared my goals for the year, I also really enjoy sharing my running and fitness goals on a monthly basis. It’s just a good practice and writing it down keeps me a accountable! I highly recommend it!

I’m linking up with Kim and Zenaida for Tuesday Topics,  DebbieMarc, and Rachel for the Running Coaches Corner, and Annmarie and Nicole for Wild Workout Wednesday!

December Fitness Goals Recap

I have to say that I did a really good job keeping up my fitness in December! I am still taking running very slowly getting only about 21 miles for the month. Here’s how I did on my goals:

  • Work out 4 days a week:  Grade: A. I did it! Even when I had several days off of work, I filled my time with yoga and barre. Now technically, I did had a week where I did 2 workouts in one day, but I’m claiming this as a victory!
  • Foam roll and use lacrosse ball after each run:  Grade: F. I didn’t run much in December, but even still, I didn’t do what I needed to do. Bad Janelle!
  • Transition to running with custom orthotics:  Grade: A. The orthotics are in! I’m not having any issues with them so I think I’m pretty well adjusted. However, I probably need to buy new running shoes.
  • Limit portions at holiday gatherings:  Grade: B+. I honestly think that I did a pretty good job with this. I didn’t stuff myself, that’s for sure. And I always looked for healthier food options.

January Running/Fitness Goals

I'm sharing my key running and fitness goals for the month of January!  Find more running motivation and encouragement at runwithnoregrets.com!
  • Attend barre/yoga classes at Y2BFit 8x/month. I have had a monthly membership at my local barre studio for a couple of years now, but I recently realized I was falling way short of 8 classes a month. I’m looking forward to meeting this goal! I started and achieved this goal in December and I want to keep it going!
  • Meet up with a local running club. This is one of my New Year’s Resolutions. Since I’m not training for a race, I have no excuses to keep me from joining a group run. Now, I just need to figure out which group, and when…then hopefully I can share my experience and revive the Running Club Roundup!
  • Create a daily prehab routine. Injury prevention is another huge goal for me this year. I have started to look up articles on stretches that I should do for my feet, knees, and weak hips (which is probably the root of all my issues). Judy suggested coming up with a reward, so I need to work on that too!
  • Run 2x/week. I’ve realized that my stamina has really suffered due to my limited running…the struggle is real. I only like to stick to 3-4 miles right now, and don’t even ask me what speed work is. I think that having a short run during the week and a longer run on the weekend could go a long way! But again, no pressure to go a certain pace!
