the weekly chase #28



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

Weekly goals for October 6–12; 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.
This went much better this week. Not 100%, but I didn't expect it to go from so poor to amazing in a week.

Goal #2 - Continue Dopey training.
Yes. This week was pretty tame as far as mileage, and I was having aches and pains in my arches again, along with starting to feel sick, so I cut back a bit more than I usually would. I felt it was more important to stay healthy for this week's long run (17 miles!).

Goal #3 - Roll with the stick/foam roll, stretch, and ice daily.
I did not do this every day, and am feeling the effects this week. Gotta get back into the habit!

Goal #4 - Cross train at least two days.
Um... just once.

Goal #5 - Join the gym! This way, if/when weather is extremely horrible and I feel like I'm getting a cold, I can run indoors. I also want to go swimming and look into taking some spin classes.
I wasn't home much this week and didn't have a chance to get there when their hours of registration were. Hoping to go this week!

Goal #6 - Meet new friends (and ones I've already 'met' through twitter) at the Chicago Marathon Shakeout Run on Saturday morning and cheer everyone on Sunday! 
Yes! I didn't have a chance to meet as many as I was hoping to, but still met quite a few! It was a fantastic weekend.

Weekly goals for October 13–19

Goal #1 - Daily goals –

  2. Great job on reaching your goals for the week. I am always foam rolling although I never ice. Maybe I should think about doing that as well. -L
