So I'm looking at my August calendar and I see the following:
Iron Girl Triathlon 8/11
Marathon Training AND Kickball ongoing Saturdays in August
THIS IS THE EMPTIEST MY CALENDAR HAS LOOKED IN MONTHS!!!
So it's kinda really empty and it seems like as good as a time as any to pick some AUGUST GOALS!
1) I'm using Iron Girl as another "test" triathlon to get ready for the Tri Rock Lake Geneva Triathlon on 9/14. Basically I need to get used to the whole transition/switch up the sport thing. And I really gotta get comfortable in the open water and the bicycle. This is the same goal I've had since last February and it's starting to get a bit frustrating to be honest.
2) Strength training! I did A LOT of strength training while I was injured and then I just sort of forgot about it. It's just too easy to go for a run sometimes rather than go to the gym and lift weights.
3) Less running. I need to stick to Run Less Run Faster plan of only running 3 times a week. Anytime I over do it then my legs really feel it and I want to go injury free this marathon training cycle. Consequently I need to start actually doing my PT exercises.
4) See more movies!!! I've been neglecting my first love and I'm going to change that soon!
What are your August goals?
