Setting Goals For March

I am trying to get into a habit of setting goals each month, although I need to keep them simple so I don’t get overwhelmed. I already am finding that taking the time to set a few goals, write them down, and share them here is making me more accountable and more determined to reach my goals.

Setting Goals

Before I share my March goals, I want to review how I did with my February goals.

February Goals

  • BestBodyBootcamp. I did pretty well keeping up with BestBodyBootcamp, although I missed a few specific workouts the week I was in Europe because the hotel gym hours didn’t fit with my schedule.
  • Run 2014. I met my 20.14 miles/week goal during the first two weeks of February, but I only ran about 12 miles during the week I was away, and then my treadmill at home went out of commission. I think I will have to set this goal aside until my treadmill is running again too!
  • Run in Europe. After setting a goal to run in Europe, I was determined to make it happen.  I headed out for a run the day I arrived, and ran two other days, including running around The Lakes in Copenhagen.

All in all, I think I did pretty well.

Now for my March goal-setting:

Goal Setting

During March I will be focusing on two things: observing Lent and getting ready for my April races! Lent starts on Wednesday, so I will share more about how I will be observing Lent then. To kick up my training, I am going to do speed or hill intervals (or some other kind of speed or hill training) every week and make sure I am including core and glute exercises in my strength routines, to keep my ITB and piriformis quiet!

Have you set any goals for March?

Do you have any spring vacation plans?

  2. Sounds like February was a good month! After missing some of my runs due to my knee or the weather, my main goal this month is just to get all of my runs in.

    I fully support the goal to run in Europe! Wow!! Some of my happiest travel memories have been runs I did on vacation–Hawaii was by far the best place to run. 🙂
