Monthly Goals: April 2013

Yes yes, I am a week behind with my goals for April and my review of my March goals. What can I say, I had a lot to talk about last week! First let’s take a look back and see how I did in March.

1.) PR in the 5k distance (officially): (A+) Done! Three times! I PRed in the Run for Relief, then again by one second on a hot day for the St. Patrick’s Day 5k, then again on a training run (27:30). Feels so great o get an A+ on a mini goal!

2.) Stretch: (D-) Oh boy. This one is ugly and starting to take it’s toll. My IT band has been really angry at me lately, and I am not as flexible as I would like to me. I know this one is so important though, so I must try again this month.

3.) Continue with Body Pump: (A+) Yes! I went every Monday in March, then followed it up by missing the first Monday in April. #fail. Oh well, I still went four times in March and am really proud I stuck with this new class. Will be back tonight!

4.) Update the races page on my blog: (F.) Hhhhmmm…..No was around this one folks, it just didn’t happen. With the re-launching of my blog in March and getting all the kinks worked out I just didn’t have time. However I did finally publish my runDisney tab on my blog. Check it out!

I also PR’ed in the 10k distance at the Crescent City Classic

Onward to my April goals. Let’s see….

1.) Stretch. I am putting this one at the TOP of the list because I really need to get back on top of this. I don’t want an injury.

2.) Cross train twice a week. You can join my Cross Train or Remain the Same challenge if this is an April goal for you! Like stretching, this is also important for my overall health and strength.

3.) Cut back on the sweets. I know myself well enough to not say “cut out sugar completely (hello, what’s the point of living?!?) But I DO need to get a handle on the Easter candy consumption. Especially since it’s almost swimsuit season here. Yikes!

4.) Run two more races. Sadly racing season is coming to an end down here, but I would love to get in a couple more short distances races before the heat really sets in. We will see what I can find locally!

Race I ran 2 years ago in May. May races are HOT here. I was not happy.

QOTD: What is one of your goals for April? Did you accomplish any March goals?

Comments

  1. Cutting back on sweets is a CONSTANT goal of mine! I just love them so much! :-)

  2. Cross training is one of my goals for April as well. I notice a big difference in my running and the way my body feels when I don’t do activities outside of running. Your Cross Train or Remain the Same Challenge is a fun way to make sure I add it into my week :)

  3. Awesome job! I’m so happy about all of your PRs!

    Yes, stretch! That is my huge goal too.

  4. Better late than never! :) My goal’s been simple since I started marathon training: stick to the plan and complete every run/workout.

  5. Congrats on the “official” PR! I’m going for the 10K PR this month!

  6. well nary a one in march for this misfit.
    FINGERS CROSSSSSED FOR APRIL ;)

  7. I don’t really have a goal for training, but I want to PR during my half at the end of the month. I am running it for time and I’m hoping it’ll be good to submit to runDisney for January. I’ll use a time I already have for registration, but if this one is better, I’ll send it in.

  8. What a great month of running and cross training girl! I know you will rock this month as well!

  9. You are my inspiration! I am just getting back into running after a 2 year no go. I love reading all your updates, and I am with you in the way of the sweets. I am NO where as bad as I use to be, but it could still be better.

  10. April goal: PR for my 5k race.
    March goal completed! Attend yoga class 4 times each week!!

  11. Great job with your goals this past month! I need to incorporate more stretching as well! It’s APRIL!! I get to see you SOON!! :0)
