May goals, on paper, look pretty simple and straightforward; run more and add in strength training.
I failed at both of those but part of it wasn’t my fault. I’m blaming mother nature for some!
May was a ridiculously wet month. It was raining all the time which caused the trails to be flooded out which meant no running for me.
Could I have run around my neighborhood? I suppose but trails are a little easier on the joints while cement makes my knees ache like crazy. So unfortunately I didn’t get to run nearly as much as I would have liked and I didn’t get a chance to work up to more mileage.
I also didn’t do strength training nearly as much as I should have. I did a few workouts here and there but nothing substantial.
For June I’m sticking with the previous goals. The weather is starting to clear up and it isn’t as raining nearly as much and a lot of the trails are back to being open.
It’s also time to kick exercise back into high gear. I’m at the halfway mark for my weight loss goals and I’m looking to be at my happy weight by this fall. I won’t be able to do that if I don’t kick up my exercising just a big.
Two goals for this month are:
Run as much as I can and to focus more on strength training again. I have a lot of professional goals as well (Scott and I are working on some fun stuff for Beer Fort Collins) but for lifestyle goals right now these are the main two.
How about you? Do you have any exercise or healthy lifestyle goals you are trying to hit this month?
