I’m really good at setting the monthly goals but over the past couple of months the achieving and monitoring them has slipped a bit. So every Saturday, I’m going to look at how I’m doing and what needs to change, stay the same and what the plan is for the next week.
First a confession, no sooner did I set June’s Goals, than I changed them.
I re-assessed the running three times a week goal. Instead, over the next 16 weeks, I’m going to train to walk a marathon. Why, well because I love to walk and if I’m totally honest, I’m a self concious runner, I don’t feel strong when I run and it’s hard to improve. A bonus point is that walking is lower impact and I can handle the pain in my knees when I’m walking. This makes my exercise goals more achievable and my more inclined to fulfil them.
So far so good, I’ve covered 10km since Monday. I’ve done my physio and pyramids 4 times out of 8 so there’s room for improvement, I’ve still got an issue with my right wrist that is making press up’s hurty (beyond the usual ‘oh my God, I hate these things and my arms have gone all bendy’) so I’m going to stick to last week’s and change it up next week
Plan for next week
Today – 5km, pyramid
Sunday -7km, pyramid
Monday – 5km, pyramid
Tuesday – Rest
Wednesday – 5km, pyramid
Thursday – Cross train
Friday - pyramid
After the excess of the Bank Holiday weekend, on Wednesday I got back on track.
My two vegetarian days were Wednesday and Thursday and there has been no drinking. I tried and changed one new recipe (more on that on Tuesday) and I’ve sat down and worked out next week food plan and shopping. I’ve even found 2 sweet treats that are working for me, who knew that a rice cake covered in dark chocolate would taste so good an I’ve rediscovered my love of jelly!
