Weekly Update

Since I am starting training tomorrow and I have set monthly goals, I am going to be doing a "weekly update" to keep myself accountable.

Goal Part 1: Head for the trails.
 I have not gone to the trails yet (I haven't done that much running this week).

Goal Part 2: Schedule the workouts you like to do.
I tried to do hill repeats not once, but twice this week, but my ...monthly cramps... decided that they did not want me to do hill repeats.  Bummer.  I tried.  I really did, but each time I only got through one repeat.  I will try again, although I know my next few weeks are going to be filled with pretty boring, easy runs (beginning of a training cycle).

Goal Part 3: Set Goals

4-Week Goal: Consistent in half-training.
I don't start until tomorrow.
3-Month Goal: Blog twice a week.
Done for this week (barely, I almost forgot to blog tonight).
6-Month Goal: Sub 2:00 Half-Marathon
That is a long way away.

Goal Part 4: Sign up for a short-for-you race.

I haven't signed up yet, but I know for sure that I am going to do one in September.

Goal Part 5: If you are on the fence about going on a run, GO!

I was not so good at this one this week, but I am hoping that next week with a solid training plan starting, I will be better.

I am not even going to recap my weekly training because I really didn't have anything specific planned.

And, I am not judging you, even if you run weird (better than not running at all), but I love this oldie, but goodie Don't Be That Awkward Runner Video.


  1. Haha that video was hilarious! Hopefully I'm not one of those awkward runners but oh well if I am....Love you're goals! Checking in weekly is a good way to make sure they get done!

  2. Keep at your goals :) You are doing better than most...
