And just like that we’re in the second month of 2019! I hope that you’re still motivated to tackle all of your goals, in and out of the gym.

Since it’s the start of a new month, I’m reflecting on my fitness goals for January and sharing my new goals for February. These are one of my favorite posts to write because accountability is key!

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!

January Running Goals Recap

With the start of a new year, I like to start things off with a bang and carry the momentum for as long as possible! This was another low-mileage month, but I’m still pretty happy with what I was able to do. Here’s how I did on my goals.

  • Attend barre/yoga classes at Y2BFit 8x/month.  Grade: A-. I ended up attending 7 classes at Y2BFit. The 8th class I forgot I registered for and missed the class. I went to 2 Barre Fusion classes, 2 (t)RX Barre classes, 1 Pilates Fusion class, 1 Yoga class, and 1 Barre class. I’m definitely feeling much stronger, especially in my core. The (t)RX was really challenging and I enjoyed mixing it up with new instructors.
  • Meet up with a local running club. Grade:  B. This was tough to grade. While I did kick off the Running Club Roundup reboot, I technically only ran with my company’s running club this month. So technically it is a local running club, but not what I had in mind for this goal. I should have been more specific!
  • Create a daily prehab routine. Grade: B-. I have been sending myself reminders to stretch my calves and hamstrings and massage my feet, and while I’m not doing it every single day, I’m getting there. I still need to work on an incentive to keep up the habit.
  • Run 2x/week. Grade:  C-.  More often than not, I did NOT run twice a week. I already runfessed about my low motivation, so I need to make more of an effort to get out the door during the week. Maybe the running club could help with that goal…

February Running Goals

  • Join the Wissahickon Wanderers for a Group Run. I learned from January that I wasn’t specific enough in this goal, so now that I have committed to the Wanderers, I gotta get out there! They are very close to home so I’m hoping this is low hanging fruit! Then I can write about my experience for the Running Club Roundup!
  • Run outdoors on a weekday every week. Again, I’m trying to be more specific. I have to essentially trick myself into going into race training mode because when I do, I always make time for my runs. I know I can do this, but damn is it cold out there, lol! I don’t want to use the treadmill as a crutch…remember, I’m the one who loves winter running! 😛
  • Buy new running shoes. According to Strava, I have about 279 miles in my current Mizuno Wave Rider 21’s. Instead of shopping online, I think I need to hit the running store and really try some new models/brands. And maybe for once I’ll finally get 2 different pairs!
