the weekly chase #22



On Tuesdays I join the Weekly Chase link up with Mindy from Road Runner Girl. Below is a recap from how the goals from last week went over, and my new goals for this week.

Weekly goals for August 25–31; recap

Goal #1 - Daily goals – 
A: Log and stay under calorie goals. 
B: Drink 48 ounces of water.
C: Eat healthier snacks/meals. 
D. Hit 10,000 steps per day via Fitbit.

Did well with logging calories, staying within my calorie allotment for the days. Not so great with drinking water or getting in my steps. I'm still having a bit of arch and hip pain, so I've been taking it a bit easy (minus my Bar Method classes and training runs). Water and eating healthier snacks/meals went fairly well, but not great. This will always be an uphill battle for me, I think, but I do my best each week.

Goal #2 - Continue Dopey training. Cross train three days.

Yep! My one weekday run was a bit shorter than was scheduled, but I did an extra 10 miles on my weekend run (I raced in the Magnificent Mile Chicago Women's Half Marathon). 

Goal #3 - Roll with the stick, stretch, and ice daily.

Yes, I think the icing really helped my hip and heel make it through the half on Sunday with little pain.

Goal #4 - Lose .5 pounds.

Down .8 pounds this week and 2 pounds overall.

Weekly goals for September 1–7

Goal #1 - Daily goals – 
A: Log and stay under calorie goals. 
B: Drink 48 ounces of water.
C: Eat healthier snacks/meals. 
D. Hit 10,000 steps per day via Fitbit.

Goal #2 - Continue Dopey training. Cross train three days.

Goal #3 - Roll with the stick, stretch, and ice daily.

Goal #4 - Lose .5 pounds.

Goal #5 - Would love to PR my half marathon on Sunday, but for me, I know it depends on weather and how my body is feeling... so, I have 3 different goals in mind: PR, finish beating my fastest time from last year, just finish with a smile on my face.


Thanks for hosting the weekly chase link upMindy!

How about you — what are your goals for this week?
