At the end of last week's challenge we were given an assignment. The assignment was to write down goals*. I've already set some goals for myself this year and I think I've been doing a good job at attaining them. In relation to this challenge I think an immediate goal will be to finish off that last few pounds and get down to 130 pounds. The some 13 pounds I've already lost this year has me feeling faster and just fantastic all the way around, so that will be my short term goal. Long term for me is the Antelope Island 100k in October 2014. This will mean sticking with my current goals, which are as follows:
1. Stay injury free
2. Cross train
3. Weigh 130lbs (I'm 132.2 as of this morning!)
4. Run hills
5. Incorporate speed work
6. Enjoy running
I've written these on paper, and I'll type them up here to share with you all.
Short term goals:
By Christmas 2013 get to 130lbs
Continue ab work at least three times/week
Long term goals:
Run Antelope Island 100k October 2014
My advice, not that you asked for it, is to write down and share your goals. You'd be surprised how much harder it is to stay in bed when you've told the entire internet you're going to run 62 miles! Thanks for your work this week, Astrid. Now to get over this blasted cold and get to some Russian Twists!
*Assignment as written by our coach for the week, Astrid.
"I would like YOU to write down both your long and short term fitness/eating/wellness goals. Use the SMART guidelines to help formulate your goals. No goal is too small or too big. And when I mean write them down, I mean on a piece of paper with a pencil or marker or on a poster board (aka, a dream board). Make it look pretty or keep it simple. THEN, you need to put it somewhere you will see it every day."
