I hope you’re doing well! We’re a few days into March and I couldn’t be happier! Hopefully, the spring will finally make an appearance and cold weather running will be a thing of the past!
I thought with the start of a new month it would be a good time to share my latest round of running and fitness goals! A new month is always a great opportunity to reset and evaluate my progress on my previous goals!
Unfortunately, my goals for February didn’t go as well as planned. I felt pretty bad about it for a while, but I know by now that you’re not always going to knock your goals out of the park. All you can do is reflect and move forward!
Join the Wissahickon Wanderers for a Group Run. Grade: F. Unfortunately, this goal may have been too specific. February was such a jam-packed month and I just wasn’t able to meet up with the Wissahickon Wanderers. I was THISCLOSE to meeting up with the Conshy Runners, but I chickened out. The Running Club Roundup continues to be on hold…
Run outdoors on a weekday every week. Grade: C. I started strong, but the last couple of weeks in February just didn’t work out for me.
Buy new running shoes. Grade: A. I haven’t received them yet, but I will be wearing some brand new running shoes very soon! I can’t provide details YET – but I look forward to wearing and reviewing the shoes. Stay tuned!
Follow Coach Laura’s half marathon training plan. I’m so happy that I’m working with Laura again to get ready for the Rock ‘n Roll Nashville Half Marathon! I look forward to being back on a routine – I know myself, and I know that this works best for me!
Incorporate stair climbing whenever possible. While I haven’t talked about it much, at the end of the month I’m participating in the American Lung Association’s Fight for Air Stair Climb! I feel completely out of shape and I’m worried about my performance, so I know it’s time to start doing stair workouts whenever I can! If it’s just climbing the steps at home or at work – now is the time!
Make time for downtime. As I mentioned in my Coffee Date post, I really ran myself ragged last month. I feel like I haven’t had enough sleep. I always feel guilty for not doing “all the things” – and I need to figure out why I always need to have a full schedule. So for the month of March, I want to prioritize more me time, time to read books, relax, and not pile on the stress!
How did you do in February? What goals are you looking forward to in March?
