My big goal was to work on my flexibility and start going to yoga on regular basis. I went ONCE last month. I did, however, really focus on stretching and foam rolling after every workout, especially weights. That has to count for something, right?
My next goal was to get back on the bike on a regular basis and I'm happy to report that has happened. I now try to ride twice a week. One long ride on the weekend and a shorter more intense one during the week. That seems to be working out well.
I've also been trying to aim for at least 2500m every time I swim. I started off really strong at the beginning of the month but I've now been bumped up a lane again and I'm swimming with folks that are a whole lot faster than me so of course, I'm dying a whole lot sooner than I normally would. My last two swims I've only managed 2200m and 2100m respectively. But I know that will change. I'll get used to the pace and be able to hang on...eventually.
As for getting back on the #plankAday bandwagon...well that has been sporadic to say the least. I was good for the first week of May and then the wheels feel off that wagon. I think I was averaging 3, maybe 4 times a week vs. every day. Oh well. Something to improve on for next month.
Speaking of which, I suppose I have to work on the above listed items before I can move on to anything else, really. However, I'm going to add one more thing in - get back out and run with my run group on a more consistent basis. October will be here before I know it and if I want to break 1:30, I've got to get some speed in the bank.
Make sure you check in with the rest of the ladies in this group. I know they've all been pretty busy chasing their goals!
