Monthly Goal Recap - April/May

First street fair of the season!
How is it already May?  Winter seemed to drag on, but summer seems to be quickly approaching.

Since it's May, let's do a check in of April goals.

Run 100 miles - A
As of Sunday, I had run 101.97 miles and I did probably another 10-11 miles this week!

Complete the Blogilates 30 Day Sleek Arm Challenge - B-
Yea... didn't do so hot on this one.  I started great, but petered off around Day 16.  I'd like to finish it off though, so maybe try again for May?

Complete 1 full round of 21 Day Fix - F
This was just a poor goal for me to set.  I know better.  I've talked about it before.  Oy vey.  Granted, I was planning on starting it the Monday after Raleigh, but that was before I PR'd.

Lose that last 1 pound - A
Completed!  I actually lost 1.5 pounds, so yay!

Average 7 hours of sleep a night - A
My FitBit tells me my current average for the last month i s 7 hours, 2 minutes.  I just barely made it, but that doesn't matter!  I still did it!

Now, onto May goals!

Run 115 miles
I made 100 miles the last two months with no issues, so want to challenge myself to get an extra 15 miles in.

Complete the Blogilates 30 Day Sleek Arm Challenge
Bringing this one back.  I really want to do this and complete it!  Think I am going to start from Day 1 again.

Cross Train 4x a week
I know cross training (strength training and core) were one of the things that helped with my PR.  It's a long term goal for 2015, but I really slacked this month, so want to focus on getting my 4 workouts in.  I'm a big fan of 21 Day Fix and Beachbody (the people who created it) now have a streaming video library.  They are offering 30 day free trials, so I signed up.  I have discovered I really have workout ADD and can't do the same thing long term, so this will give me the opportunity to try different programs.  Expect to see lots of random workouts in my weekly recaps, but hopefully this will help me get my cross training in!

Complete the Neverland 5K and Pixie Dust Challenge
Since this is a big one and I've been training for it all winter/spring, figured I should include it!  Will be an easy one to check off, at least!

Check a state of my list
This should be another easy one as I'm already registered for the Madison half at the end of the month!

Share some of your goals for the month!


  1. I can't believe we will be in Disneyland in just a few short days! Cross training is high priority for me these next couple months too!

    1. I know! It's so exciting - I can't wait!

  2. I can't believe it's May, either. Insane!

    I'm sure you'll do great at Tink. You've been so good with your training. I'm just sad I won't be there to hang out with you guys! I can't remember- are you doing Wine & Dine this year? Hopefully, I'll see you there!

    1. This year is just flying by!

      I will be at Wine & Dine so hopefully I'll see you!
