I know it has been a really long time since I have blogged and I am hoping to publish about 5 half written posts soon to catch you up on what has been happening in my life. But for now I am focused on the present and some big goals I have made this year. I signed up for my first marathon! I will be running the Rock N Roll San Diego Marathon on June 2nd. I know in order to run 26.2 miles and stay healthy, I will need to be dedicated to training and therefore need to hold myself accountable. Therefore I am going to make some monthly goals and check back in weekly or monthly to let you know how I am doing.
Goal #1 – PR a 5k – (I am cheating on this one because I already did PR my 5k for February and I just need to blog about the Best Damn Race to let you know about it)
Goal #2 – 3 to 4 training runs a week -My running plans for this week :Monday – 4 miles, Wednesday 3 miles, Thursday 3 miles, Sunday 13.1 (Half Marathon) I have to give myself flexibility on 3 to 4 because my work schedule is hectic and my IT bands get so sore… which leads me to my next goal
Goal #3- Yoga 4 times this month ( I already did 1 intro to hot yoga class yesterday which I LOVED so much I signed up for a 10 class package) My IT bands and hips appreciate the good stretch.
Goal #4 – Strength training 2x a week
Here is to a great February!
P.S. If my brother reads this he better be just as committed as I am to running this marathon. Time to get training.
