JULY GOALS UPDATE
1. Speedwork every week A-
I was able to get in a speed session every week-however one of the weeks definitely did me in for my 10k race.
2. Finish fast A
I focused on this for every run and it definitely showed in my 10k with my final .2 being at a sub 8 min mile pace.
3. Start slow B+
This has definitely helped but it can be very hard to do. I want to continue to do this.
4. Break 30 min in my 4th of July 5k and try and break an hour at the 80s run 10k A-
I finished the Rosemead 5k in 28:25 and finished the 10k in a running time of 59:38 and official race time of 1:00:31 (when I realized I was not going to PR, I decided to stop for a bathroom break at the halfway point since the race started about 20 min late)
1. Have a strong final training run for Dumbo-6 miles on Saturday and 14 miles on Sunday
I can't believe Dumbo is almost here again! I need to get in some strong training as I feel like I may not be ready for it as I don't feel like I have been running enough miles
2. stretch, roll and yoga for 15 minutes every day
This has definitely gone by the wayside and it is showing. I am hoping by making it a habit again now, it will help
3. 5 minutes of core work every day
I have been working on getting a stronger core and I think this should help me get even stronger. The 5 minutes can be incorporated into the stretching
4. Figure out how to get in 2x weight training sessions a week
I am currently getting in 1 15-20 minute weight circuit training. I want to figure out a way to get in another day or maybe break it up over a few days.
What are your goals for August?
