It is crazy to think that in just four days time we will be saying goodbye to the first quarter of 2013. I have had some up’s in this first quarter, but mostly downs in my progress towards becoming a better me. So I thought today I will get a bit smarter about what it is I want to achieve in the next month/quarter and how I am going to get there!
|2nd Quarter Goals|
|Event||5k Fun Run|
|Weight||4kg Loss||2kg Loss||2kg Loss|
|Running Distance Goal||7km||8km||9km|
|Fitness Goal||Complete 30DS||BIKE!||BIKE|
|Personal Goal||Learn how to do manly Car stuff on the hubbys Car|
First of all, Event, they all say to do a fun run for your very first event. I think I have chosen the best fun run there is!! The Run for your Freakn Life Spookers run! Totes will be busting a mill pics on this one, Mud, Obstacles, Run and Zombies. Love it!
I can also only afford to spend a certain amount of money on this new hobby of mine, so I am restricted to a certain amount of events per year, Mortgage before fun!
Ok, Weight! I have been struggling with getting past the 77kg mark. I have given up, started and given up again, today I am re-focusing and getting back on my game…again lol But this time for real! I will be having my Hubby hold me accountable, he is the only one that can growl me and I will still love and respect him, anyone else I would just tell to fuck off if they give me the hard word ha! Working with a kick start goal of 4kg in April, I know this is achievable with the stuff I have planned for the month, its going to exciting, I will blog it all!! I’m chucking in 2kg losses thereafter. I want to be realistic about it and not setting myself up to fail, anymore loss than that will make me super chuffed!
I had to really think about how I am going to make some Running goals. When I was hitting January hard with the running, I started to despise the fact that I couldn’t push pass 6km, for this reason I am just going to increase it in 1km lots. I am feeling a lot more optimistic about running since I started running on my own. I hate to say it, but I kinda prefer it. I can run at my own pace, and don’t feel like I need to speed it up or slow it down. I am sure once I get to a comfortable fitness level to be able to run with others I wont have the same attitude. Oh plus I have short legs, which means I have a shorter stride, all my mates are taller than me lol I would only slow them down and want to stop all the time from trying to keep up ha!
Looking forward to a 10km in nov/dec!!
In January this year I hit up 116km, mostly in 5km lots and running 5-6 days a week, which was kinda dumb and probs led to me getting injured. I have not ever run much before dec/jan so pushing it was a bit silly, I say pushing it because I actually had to push my children in a stroller as I ran, Hubby works out of the country, so everywhere I went, they cruised with me. So that was like 25kg+ resistance, on top of an already shithouse fitness level. What I would like to achieve with Clocked Km’s is 120km’s in April, that’s only 4k’s more than Jan, but because I will be doing a few more longer distance runs I hope to be able to easily knock out this goal!
Fitness Goals mean completing 30 Day Shred in its entirety! I don’t have a gym membership, or a huge weight machine set up, so I think getting through the Shred in April will help with the obstacle side of the Zombie run, plus I need to get buff lol
As you may have read in my last post, I bought a bike, I want to actually ride this bike, and ride it well lol So for May and June, I will be chucking in a few km’s of biking. I hope I don’t eat dirt too often!! I’ll get someone to take pics if I do, those are “Must posts” for your entertainment! ha!
Just one sneaky Personal Goal which is also on my Beast Bucket List, and is such a girl thing to put… Learn and do Car stuff. As I am without a husband for pretty much half a year I need to know how to do things, boy things, I need to do some blue jobs! I am getting real good at boy jobs, and I feel real Beast for having learnt how to do them haha!
So long and boring I know, but its all gonna get smashed out, and I am looking forward to every little bit of it!
All about Becoming Beast… or that little unicorn at the top of this post!
What are your goals for the next quarter/month??
