November Goals

It’s a new month and with race training temporarily on hold, it’s time for some new goals!

Move every day! — 30 days of movement – be it a run, a walk, time in the gym or on the yoga mat. I will move every day!

#RunNovemberChallenge – When I saw Jessy’s post, I knew I wanted to do this. It fits perfectly with my daily movement goal, and I like that I can mix running and walking.

Strength Train 3x’s/week — Strength work must be a priority. Period.

150 minutes of planking —  Last time I did 5 minutes a day was back in April. And, while I’m a big fan of planks, I’ve been inconsistent in my planking lately so I thought it would be fun to challenge myself with a time goal.

I’m already eyeing some early 2018 races, so I’m hoping these goals will help to set me on the right track.

Do you set monthly goals? What do you have planned for November?




  1. We have a similar goal with the daily movement! I’m aiming to get in my 10,000 steps daily. It will be a little harder on days that I don’t run, but I’m determined to be active every day.

  2. Moving everyday is always my goal and I feel better when I do it. I seem to start strong w the planking and then lose it. These sound like doable goals hope you have a great week. See you for coffee this weekend I hope

  3. I love that move every day goal! I guess I informally try to do that–but it’s nice to put it out there!

  6. Alrighty then! I just finished 150+ minutes of planking for October, and have some other ideas in the mix for November. Stay tuned…I’ll preview them on Friday! Glad you have a great attitude for this “rehab” journey you’re on at the moment 😉

  7. Those look like great goals. I’m beginning this month with a week of going sweets-free…had too much on Halloween! I feel better already. 🙂

  8. I love your goal of moving every day for 30 minutes. That is so easily attainable, and what a feeling of accomplishment to do something every day!

  10. Great goals. That moving challenge is a good one. I too need to be more consistent with planks/pushups/strength. Especially now that marathon season is behind me.

  11. I haven’t really sent monthly goals in a while. I am just trying to get through this year race by race, week by week and day by day. So far it’s going well and in 2018 I can change my strategy.

    Great work!
