Friday Five – April Goals

Happy Friday!

As last week’s runfessions revealed I’ve been feeling a little whiny about my running. So in an effort to focus on the positive, I’m skipping my monthly rewind, in favor of looking ahead to goals for this month!

April Goals


  1. Run all the miles — Don’t leave any run shorter than planned.
  2. Lose the negative thoughts — Going to replace that negative voice that’s been all too present on the road with me lately. I will focus on the mile I’m in.
  3. Return to morning runs — I’m best when I start my day working out – then when the schedule runs amok, at least I’ll know I’ve already taken care of myself.
  4. Step-up the strength work — Going back to work with Trainer Stacy and I can’t wait!
  5. Lose 3 pounds — One of my 2016 goals is to lose 12 pounds, and while I’ve been making a little progress here, I know I lost my focus a bit last month – I’m recommitting.

What are your goals for April?

I’m linking up with Courtney, Mar, and Cynthia for the #FridayFive link-up – This week’s theme is “fitness.” DC-Trifecta-Friday-Five-linkup



  1. Great goals! Yes to the AM workouts…it makes the day so much better 😉

    Good got this!!!

    • Thanks Tamieka! Trying to workout after work is just getting harder and harder – and I miss kicking my day off with that sense of accomplishment.

  2. Yes yes yes to morning runs. It can’t always happen, but I make every effort & my day runs so much more smoothly when I do. I’m in the final stretch before my HM on May 1. But I’m ready for it to be over so I can refocus on losing a few LBs & more cross-training.

  3. I am getting a fitness tracker this month so my goals are going to be steps, steps, steps!!!!! I’m in a challenge at!

  4. Looks like some great manageable goals! Hope to see you for coffee tomorrow 🙂

  5. For April, my goals include keeping my PF under control and getting to the start line of Big Sur ready to run. And most important is finishing with that medal around my neck. After that, I’m ready to rehab.

  6. I don’t have any yet. I don’t think I set any for March, either.

    That really does need to change!

    I like that you just have 5 goals! So many people get so wrapped up in a humongous amount of goals.

  7. Great goals. I would like to shed some of the lbs as well. Need to get back in run shape! 🙂
