March was a pretty busy month but I was really pleased to really take on the month head on. Let’s review my goals for March: build my mileage back up in preparation for the Cherry Blossom 10 miler, take 20 Pure Barre classes, practice more patience and be more intentional in terms of staying in touch with my friends. Not only did I build my mileage back up, I actually ran a 17.75k (11.03 miles) race – recap coming soon! I’d say I definitely met that first goal. I also finished 20 Pure Barre classes. I can’t believe I took 20 classes in one month – but I did! I improved my patience but it is still something I’m actively working on. I am really happy to report that I had great phone conversations with friends who live out of state and met up with a couple of friends in the DC area that I hadn’t seen in awhile. I also met my former coworkers for happy hour. I definitely want to continue being intentional with my friendships!
- Run 4x a week. I’ve decided (more about this to come) that I’d like to drop about 5-10 pounds before I start marathon training this summer. One of the ways I’m going to be doing that is adding a fourth run each week. I’m running an April 5k race series, where I’ll be running a 5k each Friday evening so it shouldn’t be too hard to get in that extra run.
- Do my PT prescribed exercises 4x a week. My new exercises kind of suck (because they are hard) but I know how important they are and honestly, it’s just a waste of money to go to PT and not do the work. I want to stay healthy and running and this is a part of it.
- After two months of intense Pure Barre work, it’s important for me to find middle ground. I will be traveling for almost a week in April, however I’d still like to go to at least 4 Pure Barre classes a week. I am loving how strong I’m getting and want to keep it up.
- Be out of boxes by the end of the month. We are moving (locally) this week and I’d really like to be all out of boxes by the end of the month. I hate clutter so hope that giving myself a month to get things organized is enough time.
I feel really optimistic about this months goals!
What are your goals for April?
