Goals:

Get more sleep. I end up getting into bed at a reasonable hour most nights but often end up watching TV in bed. Terrible I know!

Be positive. I have a tendency to focus on the negative and really want to work on that.

Keep being creative with healthy meals that J will eat.

Keep my mileage going up. I am kind of in a rut with my running workouts. It has been difficult to get passed 3.5 miles. I do not know if it is the heat or a mental issue but with half training starting at the end of the month, I really need to get there.

What are your plans/goals for the coming week?

  1. This week 4 running days, 3 strength training days, 5 ab workouts and 1 rest day.

    Goals? Follow my training plan! I also need to get more sleep. And I blame the heat. I'm training for Chicago and the heat is a mental road block and lately the time of day doesn't matter much. It's just hot!

  2. I know it's hard sometimes, but thinking positive is super important!

    My goals this week are to get more sleep too. I usually end up falling asleep on the couch – but would probably be better off just going to bed!

  3. The heat can be a mental road block! I am pretty acclimated living in Florida but it still can make adding extra miles tough.

    It is super important to think positively and a constant challenge for me. I am planning on trying to go to bed ten minutes early every night until I get to a reasonable hour.

  4. You're awesome for making a weekly workout plan. I just try to get up and get something dine!! Hahaha! I usually like to run or bike 3-4 days a week and strength train 2 days a week.

    Keep up the good work. You will get past that 3.5 in no time!

  5. Being positive is one of my goals this week too. I've been strugglign with my negativity about my runs quite a bit. Another one of my goals this week is like Jill's to stick to my training plan. I also want to get in some more cross training. I wish blogging counted as cross training.

  6. Cross training is key. I love to run but like doing other activities plus moving in different ways is so important.
