Goals for June 2014
Whew. What a fantastic weekend. It was my birthday and I celebrated at a Jays Game, with Super Heroes, a big birthday party with some friends and some of my favourite runners! It was also my very first double race weekend, so that was a new challenge. I know it affected both race performances, but I had FUN and that is the main point.
I was excited to meet a bunch of readers this weekend as well. Thanks so much for saying hi! I will be doing a race recap on both races this Friday. Today, however, we are looking towards June and what I want to accomplish over the next 30 days and looking at how I did in May!
1. Increase trail running for Sulpher Springs and 5 Peaks Series. C
I think I went on 3? Certainly not an increase, but I had a great trail race and I am looking forward to another trail race next weekend in Michigan. I am being cautious with these first trail races of the year and focusing on getting my “trail legs” ready before really racing hard.
2. Increase community involvement. A+
I had a great session at Runners Choice last week teaching a local running clinic a lesson on Core for runners. I have booked for sessions in Toronto and Orangeville and have solified teaching a Learn to Run clinic at a local corporation in Waterloo.
3. Have a rocking race weekend on my birthday. A+
Well, I think I knocked this one out of the park. Also, I strongly believe in birthday MONTHS, so the fun keeps rolling for the next couple weeks while I celebrate with friends and family.
4. Take one night off a week. F
5. Spring clean! A+
My car has fresh summer mats and is squeaky clean inside and out. I also have swapped my winter wardrobe out for summer clothes and am ready for this beautiful hot weather!
What’s on tap for June?
1. Learn a new sport
I have rounded up a couple friends who are teaching me a new and necessary sport. I will be sharing more of my experiences later!
2. Take some courses for work.
I just began a new position at my job and there are some big learning curves that I was to tackle head on. I have signed up to take a course and I am hoping to complete it by the end of June.
3. Focus on sleep.
I know I have made this a goal before, but it is slipping again for me. I want to get 7-8 hours of sleep at least 5 nights a week in June.
4. Increase my savings.
Another goal I have made before, but I am planning on increasing it again. I have an appointment booked with my financial advisor and I am hoping to do some big saving for awesome things like travelling the world and to fund my running shoe addiction. The vital things, you know?
5. Complete my first triathlon.
I am running my first triathlon at the end of this month and I really am not sure what to expect. I’ve never done one before so I am focusing on completing it in one piece!
Off to recover from my races!
What are your goals for June?
Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat says
Once again, thank you for an absolutely amazing weekend! Congrats on your shiny new PR – you worked SO hard for that one and I’m super proud! I’m excited to hear about this new sport you’re taking up…. and if you need a trail running buddy, you know who to call. 🙂
We need to get that workout schedule rolled out so we aren’t always flying by the seat of our pants! We have lots of trail runs in our future. I am so excited!
LoL love the Adele GIF! That is my response to so many situations right now. And Good luck with that #3 for June. I need that one too!
I felt like the GIF was the only thing that truly summed up my devastating attempt to get in some free time!
Good luck in sleeping more. Goodness knows we all need it!
Have you ever seen the Aveno ad with Jennifer Aniston? Her advice for clear skin is sleep first then Aveno.
I love it. I always say before I buy anti-aging creams, I am going to try adding an extra hour of sleep a night! 😉
Love, love, love the Adele GIF! I’d also like to increase my savings this June, though that seems to be a constant quest for me. Good luck on your June goals, and can’t wait to read about how they go!!!
Sometimes gifs say so much more than words!
Thanks for the support. Good luck on your goals as well! 🙂
