the weekly chase #32



On Tuesdays I join the Weekly Chase link up with Mindy from Road Runner Girl – thanks for hosting, Mindy! I missed last week for the first time since I joined the link up. I'm a day late, so joining here on Wednesday as I try to play catch up this week. Below are my goals from two weeks ago, and then I'll add some new ones for this week.

Weekly goals for November 3–9; 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 (will use caution here, as my shins and calves have been sore since my 20 miler on Sunday).
All of these went well that week. I didn't hit my steps each day, as I took it easy for my shins and calves. Steps were: 5269, 5830, 10114, 13095, 17102, 36758, 30,113. I did so well starting Thursday because I was at Walt Disney World for theme park fun and some runDisney races. 

The following week steps: 17902, 21577, 24326, 21244, 10533, 8091, 25988. I was in the top 5 of my friends list, which was nice to see, as I'm generally in the teens or 20s haha. Don't expect it to be so great this week, as I'm being a bit lazy after my exhausting two weeks. I didn't eat great while on vacation, though I tried to get a few salads in there. Gotta get back at it this week.

Goal #2 - Continue Dopey training.
Eh, I got in the miles on the weekend (only needed 6 since I switched up my weeks, but ran 16.2). Plus there were the days of being on my feet ALL day long walking around. I think it counts as endurance.

Goal #3 - Roll with the stick/foam roll, stretch, and ice daily.
I did rolling and some stretching, but didn't get the icing in on vacation.

Goal #4 - Cross train at least two days.
I think walking all day every day counts as my cross training, no?


Weekly goals for November 17–23

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 - two 45 minute runs, 7 miles on Saturday.

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

Goal #4 - Cross train at least two days.

Goal #5 - Unpack, do laundry, clean house.


How about you – what are your goals for the week?
