As I have already updated my New Year's Eve goals for the halfway point, I decided with 5 weeks until dumbo double dare, I would write out 5 goals to have the most successful race I can (and also because I need to be in good shape to run in just a sports bra as Lilo from Lilo and Stitch).
GOALS TO WRAP UP DUMBO DOUBLE DARE TRAINING VERY STRONG
1. Finish all training runs
I have these following training runs left:
This week-6 miles- at the rosé bowl
Next week-4 + 12.5- 4 at home, 12.5 at the beach
6 miles- rosé bowl
6+ 14- i may switch the 6 to 5.3 (I hate the 6 mile loop around my house because part of it doesn't have sidewalks) and then do the 14 at the rosé bowl.
I have decided to get ambitious (and also lessen my own anxiety about Dopey and Princess), I have decided to make the last 2 training weekends 3 in a row. Crazy but definitely doable. I will need to slow down. Also it will give me a chance to test out which shoes to wear.
2. Roll and stretch at least 15 minutes a day
I have been slacking on this and my body feels it. I need to do 5 minutes after I run and at least 10 minutes at night. More will definitely be better but I feel that's a good goal to set.
3. Do my core workout 5 times a week
I think this is a great goal. I started doing a core workout and started seeing results pretty quick. I want to stick with it as a strong core is essential for running.
4. Start PiYo and do it 3 days a week
I have heard nothing but amazing things about this program so I ordered it this week and can't wait to start it. I will probably do it 3 days a week and hopefully will see results!
5. Finish my costumes
A known fact but it needs to get done! I plan on finishing my lilo costume this weekend and the parts of my dumbo costume as well (my mom is working on the skirt and shirt). I then need to finish my wine and dine costume as I will be so busy in the Fall.
What are your goals for the rest of the summer?
