I have to say, I’m kind of glad that May is over! It was such a busy month. It’s crazy that when I was writing my review of April I was still complaining about the cold weather, and now I’ve been complaining about the heat. Isn’t that how it always goes? Still, I’m glad it’s finally warmed up after a very long winter.
I felt like I really didn’t focus much on my yearly goals this month. Instead it was more about just getting through each week. I was just happy to keep up with my workouts and do what I could.
GOALS FOR 2018
As I said I really didn’t focus too much on my yearly goals this month, so I won’t go through each of them. I’ve still kept up with tracking my shoe mileage, even if sometimes I’m putting in 2 weeks worth of runs all at once. My back has been feeling pretty good, but will still have random moments when it bothers me. It started to feel off after traveling back from Florida last week. I went to the chiropractor and got an adjustment and ART, and it’s felt better since then.
I also finished reading 2 books this month: Let Your Mind Run by Deena Kastor and Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.(affiliate links) Both were really good. (I love that I have so much time to read on vacation!) I’m up to 5 books already for this year, so I’m sure I will surpass my goal of 6!
MAY 2018 GOALS
My only goal for May was to keep up with yoga at least once a week, which I did. Now that I have made it a part of my workout routine it’s been easier to fit it in.
GOAL SETTING FOR JUNE 2018
I think for June I want to put some focus back on strength training. I felt like it sort of took a backseat over the last month. I’ll be starting a new phase soon which is a good opportunity to focus on it a little more.
I also want to get back in the habit of doing mobility work once or twice a week. As part of my strength training plan, there are recommended mobility exercises that I can add in either all on one day or split into 2-3 days. This includes soft tissue work, static mobility, dynamic mobility, and motor control exercises.
Not that this is really a “goal”, but I also hope to become acclimated to the warmer weather this month! Running has been a struggle lately.
