5 goals for September

I figure before this month gets any older I better map out a few goals for the month.

Run 80 miles (at least) — I’d really like to hit 100 this month, but given my ankle’s unpredictable nature I’m hedging my bets a bit.

Re-establish my morning routine — Towards the end of the summer, my workouts were all over the place, essentially jamming them in when I could. I know I’m much better off when I get my workouts done early so that’s the goal.

Return to continuous running — Run:walk intervals have served me well in both dealing with the crazy humidity of this past summer and the cranky ankle, but I’d really like to transition back to continuous running.

Improve my fueling — I could do better here – both pre- and post-run.

Focus on self-care — This comes in many forms…daily rolling, yoga, sports massage, getting more sleep!

  4. These are GREAT goals. And I know you’ll nail them all.

  5. These sound like my goals :)… I do much better when I schedule my workouts in too. I don’t tend to waiver from it very much though. I definitely am upping my self-care though!

  6. I need to kick start my exercise program again. We are going on vacation at the end of the month and I need to be in better shape.

  7. I’m easing back into strength-training and PT stuff for the knee/hips/glutes….and some daily ab work (YIKES!). Good luck with you goals 😉

  11. I can’t remember the last month I ran 80 miles. That’s a great goal. You’ve got this!

  12. Sounds like some great goals! I’ve totally been there where my workouts were out of sync, and I definitely rely on a routine to get them done.

  13. Well done on the goal setting! All I can think about is getting myself to Berlin and across that finish line. After that maybe I’ll set some goals.
