Recap of September Goals


I finished the month of September off the right way with a run.  It was H-A-R-D and I have no idea why!  As I was running, looking at my Garmin, and feeling like I was going at a snails pace I kept wondering how the heck I had hit a PB just weeks ago.  I couldn't find my rhythm, my arms didn't want to swing just felt off.  I did get it done....and hope to return to more regular running now that my stream of 5k races are over.

The run tonight:

As I was running home, I did realize that I don't feel as strong as I have in the past.  I need to get back at the plank and arm strengthening moves!!

This leads me into my next piece which is to review the goals I set for September.

  • Eat better - this one lasted until about midmonth and then I seemed to slide backwards in terms of taking snacks to work.  I need to get better at this!
  • Plank a day - Again....I lasted until mid month. 
  • Run consistently at least 3 times per week.  When my knee started hurting after Maritime Race weekend, I stopped running during the week so I could run all 5k races.  I hope to pick this back up again in October.  This time last year, I couldn't run at all.  I am happy just to be able to run.
  • To be more present at work.  This is the one goal that I did continue throughout the entire month.  I managed to dress for the part for the entire month and will continue to do so going forward.

  • So this leads us to October.  I need to think of my goals....I am going to carry forward the 'Eat Better' goal, but I need to set some new ones for myself!!!  Until then....I plan on enjoying the colors of Autumn and playing in the leaves!!!!

    Valley Harvest 5k is 2 weeks away!

    What are your goals for October?
    What do you enjoy most about this time of year?
    Do you enjoy Halloween???


    1. A Hard run is still a run. :) Good on you for getting it done!

    2. I seem to be on a long streak of hard runs, hoping to break it later today! :-)

    3. Ugh hard runs are the worst. Especially when you have no idea why!

      This time of year I love the crisp sunny days. For some reason I like needing to wear a jacket when I go outside :) And I love Halloween. I need to figure out my costume for this year though!
