August Goals Update
1. Have a strong final training run for Dumbo-6 miles on Saturday and 14 miles on Sunday A+
This I blew out of the water. I shortened my intervals with the crazy heat (down from 2:00 min run to 1:45 run) and was able to do 6 miles on Saturday and 18 on Sunday! I planned to do 15 and was feeling good enough to do 18 (which included a cool down as well). I am so ready for this race this weekend!
2. stretch, roll and yoga for 15 minutes every day C
I started off so strong and then fell off as work got busy. I am planning on doing it this week leading up to Dumbo this week
3. 5 minutes of core work every day B-
I definitely have been doing this minus during D23. No matter what, I did some stretches and at least one plank which definitely has helped me become stronger
4. Figure out how to get in 2x weight training sessions a week B+
I stuck with my one weight training and added in short 2-3 min sessions 1-2 times per week. I would love to fit in 2 full sessions but not sure I can.
1. Rock Dumbo Double Dare
I am so pumped for this race as it is my 5 year runiversary on Saturday! I will talk more about it tomorrow but I am so excited and hoping to rock it even with the heat we are expecting. I don't think I will Disney PR (10k would need to less than 1:22 and 2:35 for a half) because since I will be corral A for the 10k and B for the half, I should be able to get some great pictures with characters in the park. We will see after that what happens
2. Run at least 20 miles for a long run
I plan on cutting back at bit after Dumbo but with NYCM coming up, I would like to get in at least 20 miles if not more. We will see how it goes!
3. Do Cize 8 min ab workout workout 3x per week
I bought Cize as my friend and Beachbody Coach is starting a group. I tried out the 8 min ab video last week and feel in love. It was only 8 minutes but pretty diffcult. My goal is to do is 3x a week (not on running days) to see how it will help my core strength
4. Roll at work
I bought a roller to use at work and have not been using it! I want to start rolling at work at least once a day even if it just for a 1-2 minutes. I think it will help with the tightness I am having.
What are your goals for September?
