Goals for the Week

Now that it is 19 weeks away from the New York Marathon I have to start making weekly goals so that I can stay on track and achieve my goals. So here are my goals for the first week of July:

1. Stay Committed to my training Plan:  I'm not going to lie, I get distracted when I come up with a plan, and often find that I don't stay on track. I always tell myself that I can start next week, instead of staying on track with what I have set out. I went for my first run yesterday in a long time - it was my first run since the Run for Women, and it totally hurt. Today I can feel all my muscles screaming, but I need to keep pushing ahead. My next run is scheduled for tomorrow. I couldn't make the full distance yesterday, but I am totally ok with that. I have to listen to my body, and make sure that I stop when my tendon starts to hurt. Yesterday, I felt a little twinge of pain with my tendon, so I stopped and rested for the rest of the day. Today it doesn't feel too bad, but I do know my limits.

2. Have fun at the Vancouver Subaru Triathlon: I sit on the committee for the Vancouver Subaru Triathlon, and the event is going to be held this weekend. It has been a lot of hard work to get everything organized but I know that this hard work is going to pay off, and it is going to be a lot of fun. The weather looks like it is going to be sunny - so hopefully the forecast stays true to its word. If you are in the Vancouver area over the weekend - you should come out and watch some pretty awesome athletes.

3. Find a Personal Trainer or a New Gym: Now that it has been confirmed that we will be moving to a new abode, we have to find a new gym - or find myself a Personal Trainer, so that I can get stronger and a new found confidence. I am going to miss my current Bootcamp instructor she whipped me into shape before I went home, and has been very understanding while I have been out injured. It will just be too far to travel, and I won't get to any of the classes on time. Does anyone have any recommendations for what to look for in a good personal trainer.  So the hunt begins.....
