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!
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!
