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