Weekly Wrapup – Sunday Funday!

13 Jul



Week 2 is in the books —

I actually started the week writing down my goals for the week, on an index card. This included my runs and other workouts. Something to know about me is I’ve never been so great at setting goals (other than – do NOT DNF this race! so you see they’re mostly made on the fly…) I think having things written down and keeping track throughout the week helped a lot!

So let’s see what happened 🙂

The Galloway plan for the week called for
Tuesday 45 minute run/walk
Thursday 45 minute run/walk
Saturday 4 miles

Tuesday — I actually ended up doing this one on Wednesday morning. Tuesday morning whilst doing my 30-day Shred my Achilles/calf tightened up so I wanted to wait it out. It wasn’t 100% on Wed so most of my 45 minutes was walking. I threw in a few intervals to see how things felt and did alright. 3 miles.
Thursday — Did this one after work on Thursday. 3 miles again
Saturday — Saturday morning I did the Hartford Marathon Foundation Red Dress Run for Women — recap here!! Not the 4 miles on the schedule but I got out there! 3 miles (Well, 3.3 according to Map My Run
I’m 1 mile short of my Galloway goal for this week. Debating making this up tomorrow.

I also didn’t get to the Jillian/Firm workouts as much as I’d hoped but, frankly, got to them more than I have recently so that’s a win, right?

I realized a biggie this week — that getting up and getting it done first thing in the morning makes my whole day better. I am also guessing that this will help it become more of a habit than a chore!

Other than the workouts, I didn’t get a whole lot done. And I have a whole lot that needs doing!! So time to spread the motivation to other things too.

Finishing up my goals for this next week and looking forward to another great one. On my list for this week is to re-engage in some Bikram. It helps with so many areas of my life it seems kind of nuts to not go back!!

Hope you’re all making big plans for the upcoming week!!

How frequently do you set goals for yourself? Do you think it helps to write them down?

    I was really excitedly about to ask if you were doing Goofy in 2015, this saw your dopey Hashtags lol. – so far the training is the same.

    I was able to get in my four miles this morning – only my second run back since an injury. I think you hit the nail on the head in this post – writing down EVERYTHING, my goals, my plan to meet them, and how I felt after each run really helps, as well as getting it down first thing in the morning. It really makes the day better (and keeps life from throwing you off your training!) Getting into that habit early in the training schedule will help so much!! Good luck!!

      Good luck to you too!! I loved doing Goofy — and had planned to do it in 2015 anyway since it’s the anniversary. Then Dopey came along… 🙂
      Can’t wait to see how we both progress!!

    I love journaling and writing out my goals and intentions! I seem to have a much better week when I am planed, prepped and ready! XO, Laurie
